The Grizzlies offered details on how workers can obtain the tickets in a Friday tweet:
Thousands of federal workers are not being paid due to the United States government shutdown that began Dec. 22. While they will be provided back pay at the end of the shutdown, they are not being compensated at this time.
Free basketball tickets won't erase the financial hardships many workers are facing, but the Grizzlies' goodwill gesture is still noteworthy. They're also providing tickets to an exciting matchup, as Memphis will take on Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans.
Davis is averaging 29.4 points and 13.5 rebounds per game and looks well on his way to a spot on the All-NBA First Team. The Pels are an entertaining team that runs up and down the court and averages the third-most points in the league.
Game time Monday is 5:30 p.m. ET.
