Links: First Win, Grizzlies #3, Eric Hasseltine

Just in case you needed an additional recap/review of the Grizzlies first win of the season -- and Marc Iavaroni's first win as a head coach in the NBA -- I've got a couple for you to peruse.

First up is Gary Washburn on

On Wednesday, the Grizzlies ended the third quarter with a 36-16 run and led by six at the end of the third quarter after trailing by 14 with 9:25 left. That is unacceptable, even for a team as young and inexperienced as the Sonics. The Grizzlies were ready to be knocked out if the Sonics had put together a solid third quarter, instead, they felt like they took Seattle's best shot and kept truckin' and they did.

Then we have a statistical breakdown on

The entertaining (if sardonic) fellows over at BasketBawful gave us a mention, as well, in their NBA recap.

The Grizzlies were ranked #3 in an interesting statistic: Efficiency of their Euro players.

Our final note of the day is to inform you that Grizzlies' radio play-by-play announcer, Eric Hasseltine, visited The Bodine School today. According to the site, Eric "addressed students in grades 4-8 about persistence, setting goals and the importance of hard work. " Nice to see members of the Grizzlies organization getting out into the community and being a positive influence.
