Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach Amid 8-Game Losing Streak

The misery remained for the Memphis Grizzlies as the team dropped its eighth straight game on Sunday after a 98-88 loss to the Brooklyn Nets.

While the Mike Conley-less Grizzlies had certainly been struggling lately - 11 losses in their last 13 games, and the last eight overall - the early optics of this move look to be more nuanced than the 7-12 record alone. Associate head coach J.B. Bickerstaff has been named interim head coach. Memphis general manager Chris Wallace and team owner Robert J. Pera have both released statements with regards to the team management relieving Fizdale of his head coaching duties, via Grizzlies' official website. "You take it personally", Gasol said to ESPN.

"Losing in this league and not meeting expectations in this league takes its toll on everybody", Stotts said before a game in NY.

"If I'm not on the floor, then I'm not valued", Gasol said. "I'm sure [the coaching staff] knew that would hurt me the most".

David Fizdale reportedly is out as coach of the Grizzlies.

Fizdale has been described as a "ride or die" type of coach and one that would go to bat for any of his players, but it seems like the same holds true for two of his former players, who have his back regardless of the situation. "Explain it to me", Fizdale ranted.
