Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach Amid 8-Game Losing Streak

Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach Amid 8-Game Losing Streak

The Memphis Grizzlies made a major organizational change on Monday afternoon, firing head coach David Fizdale just 101 games into his tenure. During yesterday's 98-88 loss at home, Gasol, the Grizzlies' leader in scoring, rebounds and assists, remained on the bench even after Memphis got back into the game. "You take it personally", Gasol said to ESPN.

Fizdale was announced as the Grizzlies coach in 2016 and had a 50-51 record in his two seasons at Memphis.

Fizdale was an assistant on Erik Spoelstra's staff in Miami prior to taking the Memphis job, which is why both James and Wade are coming to his defense.

Associate head coach J.B. Bickerstaff, who was 37-34 as an interim coach with the Rockets in 2015-16, has been promoted to interim head coach.

The Grizzlies started the season 5-1, but hit a speed bump when guard Mike Conley suffered a left Achilles injury.

"Obviously you get frustrated". I don't know if it's fair or not, but in talking to other people in the National Basketball Association, talking to retired players, one thing I've heard them say is that what's going on with me isn't right and they've never seen anything like this before. "If I'm not on the floor, then I'm not valued". "I'm sure [the coaching staff] knew that would hurt me the most". I can own the decision and I have my reasons why.

ABOUT THE NETS (6-12): Brooklyn had a chance in the fourth quarter in each of its last three games - losses to the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers and Trail Blazers - but could not make the necessary plays down the stretch.

"Over all, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint, we had 15 free throws for the game".
