Jurrell Casey is done moving around.
In Mike Vrabel‘s defense Vernon

“I’ve got to get back to double-digit [sacks],” Casey said, via Paul Kuharsky
of paulkuharsky.com. “I’m an all-time 3-technique from here on out, so I’ve just
got to get back to it. Last year I was everywhere. I played 3-technique,
5-technique, played 6, played 4. This year I can play my ground, play what I am
going to do.”
Casey has 39 sacks in the seven seasons since the Titans drafted him in the
third round. That includes 10.5 sacks in 2013.
Last season, Casey made six sacks Chris

He quietly has become one of the best defensive tackles in the game, and he
should benefit from not moving around this season.
The Memphis Grizzlies have a chance to go out a winner in what could be their
losingest season since relocating from Vancouver when they host the Detroit
Pistons in their home finale on Sunday afternoon in Memphis, Tenn.
The Grizzlies (21-58) are dueling the Phoenix Suns (20-60) for the
distinction of having the worst record in the NBA this season. Any combination
of two Memphis wins and Phoenix losses would put the Suns in the driver’s seat
at the NBA Draft Lottery in May.
One of the most disappointing aspect of the season, veteran center Marc Gasol
said recently, is the club’s 15-25 home record.
The Memphis fans deserve better, he said.
“For a long time, we made a commitment as a team, as a franchise, to not only
be a part of the community Kyle
Fuller Jersey , but THE community,” Gasol said. “I think that’s why
we have the support that we have from our fans, because they don’t see us as
somebody that supports the community. They see us a part of them. They see us
trying to help in every way possible.
“There’s a reason why we’ve been so successful. Even though we don’t have as
many of the older guys that we had here in the past, we try to teach and show,
by example, the younger players how important it is for their success, on the
court, to support all the people in Memphis. Without the support of the people
of Memphis, these things are not going to happen.”
The Grizzlies have lost their last four games Andy
Janovich Jersey , including 94-93 at home to Sacramento on Friday
night in a game attended by 16,527 people. Memphis has filled its building to 88
percent capacity this season despite the constant losing.
The Grizzlies need two wins in their last three games to avoid matching their
60-loss total of last season. That’s the most losses in the club’s Memphis
They finish with road games at Minnesota and Oklahoma City.
Beating the Pistons, even though Detroit has been eliminated from the Eastern
Conference playoff race, will not be easy.
Detroit is finishing strong, having won eight of its last 10 games despite
losing star forward Blake Griffin to a bruised right ankle halfway through the
Anthony Tolliver has filled in admirably for Griffin, scoring in double
figures in his last five starts, hitting 18 of his 29 3-point attempts.
He has reached double figures in seven straight games, averaging 17.4 points,
after recording only two such games in his previous 15 contests Jake
Butt Jersey , going scoreless three times.
Tolliver recently scolded those who doubted him.
“I’ve always been an ultimate team guy, right?” he said. “Whenever a coach
asks me to fill a role, I fill it. That’s what I do.”
The Pistons and Grizzlies met once earlier this season, with Detroit pulling
out a 104-102 home win in February. Gasol had 19 points and 14 rebounds in the
