Griffin scores 26 to lead Pistons past Grizzlies

Sources Heated Grizzlies team meeting results in physical altercation between Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi

The Memphis Grizzlies got off to a surprisingly impressive start this season, but they have been free-falling of late, and Wednesday night's loss against the Detroit Pistons was the latest example of that.

Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff addressed the media after exiting the meeting, telling reporters, "A conversation that needed to be had that will stay between those of us that were in that locker room". "I think all of us as a group obviously frustrated with the situation".

After an off-day Thursday, they won't have long to work things out.

It marked the first time Conley was held scoreless since December 8, 2015, against Oklahoma City when he played 22 minutes. In this picture, Gasol #33 of the Memphis Grizzlies plays the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, Dec. 10, 2018.

Memphis coaches and players gathered for a team meeting in the locker room after the game, questioning each other about their effort and what each can do to improve, league sources said. It was the first time Anderson has led Memphis in scoring, and it also capped the most productive offensive month of his career in his first season with the team.

The Grizzlies are struggling on offense as well, as they put up just 101.8 points per game. Blake Griffin is leading the team with 24.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game while Andre Drummond adds 17.3 points and 15.0 rebounds per contest.

"This is a part of the NBA", Bickerstaff said, via The Athletic.

The Pistons trailed 55-51 at the half, but holding Memphis to 12 points in the third quarter contributed to the Detroit comeback.
