(Memphis) The Memphis Grizzlies are down 0-3 in the Western Conference Finals and face a climb that no other team has been able to accomplish before.
However the city that has coined the slogan “Believe Memphis” isn’t giving up hope.
“They came back from 0-2 last series. If anyone could do it, they might be able to do it,” said fan Andrew Yaden from Florida.
“It’s not an easy thing to do so if anyone can do it, they can do it. They’ve got the defense to get them to the championship if anyone does,” added Yaden.
The Grizzlies Grannies and Grandpas are also anxious to see the Grizz pull it out. Dancer Carmen Dyson has been cheering the team on the since the dance team was formed.
“It’s been great; I mean they are getting better and better. It’s just a little more team work and defense and they’ll do it tonight,” said Dyson.
“We do it one game at a time, that’s how we believe. We’re nothing fancy but we are gritting and we are grinding every game,” said dancer Robert Mann.
If the Grizzlies loose Monday night, the Western Championship Trophy will be presented to the San Antonio Spurs at the FedEx Forum Monday night.
