What’s New in Memphis: May 2021
The Memphis Grizzlies are headed to the NBA playoffs for the first time in four years. They defeated the Golden State Warriors (at Golden State, might we add) and won their first round on Sunday, May 23, against the Utah Jazz. They are making their way to victory … we hope! Be sure to cheer them on.
