Grizzlies power rankings


Sports Illustrated - 23

Memphis Grizzlies (9-15)
Who woke up these sleeping bears? They conquered the Heat, Bulls, Thunder and Rockets last week for a four-game winning streak, their longest since the 2005-06 season. Meanwhile, Darius Miles has signed on as the former No. 3 overall pick continues his comeback effort.

ESPN - 19

Grizzlies 9-15 Let Coach Iavaroni enjoy this bump. He probably won't be treated to a better week all season when you add up the four straight victories and a public proclamation of support from owner Mike Heisley. - 21

Off: 105.1 (21), Def: 110.3 (20)
With a 4-0 week, including a win over the Rockets, the Grizzlies have clawed their way out of the bottom seven. They averaged just nine turnovers in the four games and have shown signs of playing defense. Look out Western Conference.

UPDATE: I just noticed that in my Google Calendar both teams I follow (Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies) won all their games they played last week. I know this is fascinating for the whole world to know but it was strange for me to discover as I clicked on each past game someone who maintains those Google Calendars updates each game as they occur with the final score. Each won said "W" in the description. That's awesome! A great week!

And almost same in NFL as my favorite teams went 2-1. Sorry Tennessee!
