Zach Randolph had 31 points and 11 rebounds and the Grizzlies advanced to their first Western Conference semifinals and made NBA history in knocking off the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs, 99-91, last night in Memphis. Memphis had been the franchise best known for empty seats and the unenviable NBA mark for playoff futility at 0-12 after being swept in its first three appearances. This time, a third straight sellout crowd cheered every bucket with a couple signs begging the Grizzlies to "Finish Them" in a town in desperate need of a hero.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points, Russell Westbrook added 21 points and nine assists, and the host Oklahoma City Thunder beat Memphis, 106-89, Thursday night in the Grizzlies' first game since trading away leading-scorer Rudy Gay. Memphis struggled mightily in the first half and trailed by 26 in the third quarter before a mini-implosion by the Thunder that featured Westbrook's getting benched after a dustup with his teammates. It still didn't provide a big enough opening for the Grizzlies, who were playing shorthanded while waiting for trade acquisitions Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye, and Ed Davis to arrive and pass physicals.

The Memphis Grizzlies' recent success at home has come against some of the league's top teams. And Zach Randolph has been playing like one of the league's top forwards. Randolph had 32 points and a career-high 24 rebounds to help the Grizzlies hold on for a 102-96 victory over the visiting Denver Nuggets yesterday. In the last 3 weeks, Memphis has claimed victories over Dallas, Cleveland and now the Nuggets, all of whom sit atop their respective divisions. "This builds our confidence up a lot," Randolph said.

Lionel Hollins is working on a contract with the Grizzlies to serve as their head coach for the third time, but the first time without the "interim" label. Memphis general manager Chris Wallace confirmed last night that he hoped to reach an agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks assistant by the end of the weekend to replace the fired Marc Iavaroni. Wallace said before the Grizzlies' game against Knicks in Madison Square Garden that he wanted Hollins to be able to run some practices before Tuesday's game with Denver.

My first visit to Glacier National Park begins with mixed feelings. There is excitement at the prospect of an extraordinary adventure in a place prized for its rugged beauty, biodiversity, and exceptional trail system. A protected wilderness of more than a million acres, the park is also one of the few places in the world where grizzly bears roam free. But however rare the encounters between bears and hikers are, the potential for danger makes me hesitate - it takes considerable coaxing from my husband before I agree to a week of hiking in the Montana Rockies.

It has been a hard winter in Missoula, Mont. It always is a hard winter in Missoula. Those growling Grizzlies of the University of Montana supplied the sunshine. They won the Big Sky Conference regular-season championship. As a reward, they got to host the conference tournament. Saturday, the Grizzlies blasted those marauding Vandals of Idaho right out of Adams Field House and back across the state line to Moscow. Montana was the biggest star of the Big Sky. After seven 20-win seasons since 1975, the Grizzlies (23-7 this season)

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Grizzlies sharpshooter Mike Miller slipped through the 76ers defense in the second quarter for a wide-open three-pointer, and, just before calling a timeout, Sixers coach Brett Brown threw a haymaker into the air. His team had competed valiantly for most of the first half, but the Grizzlies' lead had swelled to 12 because of a simple defensive lapse. Sequences like that one ultimately undid the 76ers in a 117-95 loss to the Grizzlies, their 31st loss in 33 games.

AS MOTIVATIONAL signs go, it was far from letter-perfect. According to a report in the Oregonian, Portland posted a laminated card in its locker room at the FedExForum in Memphis before battling the Grizzlies in Game 1 of the Western Conference playoffs on Sunday. The card contained various messages, including "We don't lose to Spanish players," which caused a bit of politically incorrect stir, seeing as Barcelona-born Marc Gasol plays for the Grizzlies. Blazers coach Terry Stotts addressed the situation at a news conference yesterday.

MEMPHIS - There was no fourth-quarter collapse against the Memphis Grizzlies this time. The 76ers' rematch on Saturday night was all but decided by then. The Grizzlies put the 76ers away in the second quarter en route to posting a 101-83 decision at the FedEx Forum. It was a sharp contrast to the teams' meeting on Dec. 13. Back then, the Sixers blew an 18-point, fourth-quarter advantage en route to an overtime setback at the Wells Fargo Center. It can be argued that the Grizzlies (31-12)

SOME THINGS are just too hard to overcome. In a season that already encompasses a 17-game losing streak and a loss by 53 points, the 76ers may have suffered their most debilitating defeat on Saturday at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies when they blew an 18-point lead with less than 8 minutes to play. As much as players and coaches will talk about moving on, the hangover from Saturday seemed evident in last night's listless effort against the struggling Boston Celtics as the Sixers dropped their fourth straight, 105-87.

After the 76ers set a new franchise standard for futility by losing 17 consecutive games to start the season, a loss to one of the NBA's elite teams may not seem like a big deal. But it's how they lost that pains the Sixers. They blew an 18-point, fourth-quarter advantage en route to suffering a 120-115 overtime embarrassment to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. "That is a cruel loss. That is a very cruel loss," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. The setback dropped the Sixers to 2-21 and extended their recent losing streak to three games.

MEMPHIS - It was just the 76ers' way. In a homecoming for several team members, the Sixers were unable to sustain their effort throughout the game. The Memphis Grizzlies, meanwhile, basically did whatever they wanted. Marc Gasol finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds, handing the Sixers a 117-95 loss at FedExForum on Friday night. This outcome was expected given the teams' circumstances. The Sixers' tank job of a season has been well-documented. This latest setback dropped them to 17-62.

The remaking of the 76ers continues. The team on Thursday acquired Tony Wroten from the Memphis Grizzlies for a protected second-round pick. The pick is based on where the Sixers, who are expected to struggle, finish in the NBA standings. As a result, they basically surrendered nothing for Wroten, a 2012 first-round selection. "Just want to say thank you to ALL the Memphis Grizzlies fans, coaches, etc.," Wroten tweeted Thursday. "I love the city of Memphis. Will always have love for you guys.
