Grizzlies celebrate playoffs with gear giveaway

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – The Memphis Grizzlies look to take care of some "unfinished Grizzness" in their second postseason matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Grizzlies fell to the Clippers in seven hard-fought games in the first round of last year's playoffs.

The Grizzlies may be starting the series in LA tomorrow, but fans are ready to cheer them on in Memphis.

The fifth-seeded Grizzlies marked their third straight playoff appearance today with a Playoff Swag Pickup at FedExForum.

Fans grabbed "Believe Memphis" car flags, headbands and posters on the Forum plaza.

"I am so excited. I am ready for them to go beat LA. I'm gonna holler that chant until I can't holler no more," Grizzlies fan Kierra Becton said.

"We do not need a repeat of last year. We need to go grit-grind, like Tony Allen says," fan Jim Fortune said. "Grit, grind and beat 'em."

"I think it's big for the city and the whole city is getting behind them."

Anheuser-Busch will host watch parties while the Grizzlies are in LA. Gatherings at the Flying Saucer - Downtown, Bar Louie in Midtown, BooYahs in Collierville and Buffalo Wild Wings-Wolfchase will begin at 9 p.m.
