John @ NBA wrote in his intro, “Hero Team of the Week: Memphis (4-1) – This looked like a brutal week for the Grizz, but they only lost to the Mavs and avenged that one three days later, after winning in Oklahoma City and Miami.” Robson @ SI had this as his last line in his analysis, “This is a deep, confident team that plays grind-it-out, playoff-style basketball all season long & has its sights set on home-court advantage in the first round.”
Can you believe it, two guys actually dropped the Grizzlies in spite of their impressive wins over the last week.
Are the Grizzlies the 5th or 6th best team in the league as many have ranked them? I don’t understand how Hollinger could drop them after the Grizzlies big wins or why SBNation has them ranked so low!
Average ranking for the week is 6.36 a 2.5 rise (not including actual standings). Covers Rankings updated later in week.
