Hovering around the 8th and 9th spot in the rankings, some are saying the Grizzlies will have a tough time maintaining that through the end of the month.  DOUBTERS!

A reference to the Grizzlies and the NBA finals from Tom Ziller @SBNation.  Stein says there is a twitter campaign for Hollins as coach-of-the-year. Robson @SI writes, “Credit Hollins for the fundamentally sound yet aggressively predatory defense that has enabled Memphis to thrive two straight seasons despite the extended loss of a top-two scorer. . . they lead the NBA in opponents’ assist-to-turnover ratio.”

Average ranking for the week is 8.7 a +2.7 jump (not including actual standings). Covers Rankings updated later in week.

    How could you rank Indiana ahead of Memphis? Just look at the head to head.
    The pacers are no match.

    • CarlCRNo Gravatar says:

      Agree with you! I think the worse ranking for this week is Fox who have the Grizzlies behind Indiana, Phily and Dallas, all of whom are descending in the standings while the Grizzlies are rising.

      Hollinger and Sagarin have the Grizzlies 6th today (Thursday) and they are 5th in ESPN’S RPI.
