Complete Guide to Memphis Grizzlies Postseason

The Memphis Grizzlies emphatically notified the NBA that they're ready for the playoffs, hushing a Utah Jazz team that was on its last breath of playoff life. By holding the Jazz to 70 points in the finale, the Grizzlies loudly challenged the West's high-scoring playoff teams to try to push triple digits on them.

The Grizzlies will try to bulldoze their way through the playoffs with grinding defensive play supported by balanced scoring. A trip to the NBA Finals would make them the first team in 11 years to do it without a player averaging 16 points per game.

For the second straight year, the Grizz will face the Clippers in the first round. Memphis will try to make up for the series of breakdowns that caused them to lose in seven games to L.A. last year. Turnovers, offensive failures and poor coaching decisions were among reasons for the collapse.

Now, a different Grizzlies team marches into the postseason, looking to show that defense still can win a championship. Follow along to see how the Grizz could make it happen and what type of trials stand before them.
