Grizzlies Western Conference Playoff Tickets on Sale Saturday

The Grizzlies are storming into uncharted territory, giving Memphis something to believe in.
MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The Grizzlies are storming into uncharted territory, giving Memphis something to believe in. It's not only big news for the team, it's huge for the entire city.

According to sports commentators across the country, the Memphis Grizzlies are a legitimate championship contender. Wednesday night Zach Randolph called the team "America's underdogs." They've quickly become the darlings of the NBA playoffs.

With Grit and Grind as their mantra, the Grizzlies have now ousted two of the NBA's star franchises, the L.A. Clippers in the first round, now the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Memphis is a small market team that is now for the first time in the Final Four, which gives the Bluff City something to celebrate.

ESPN radio host Chris Vernon says, "Unlike a lot of cities, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, wherever you want to talk about, Miami, this matters here. This is bigger than basketball, there is a collective happiness that has taken over the city because of what this team's done." He continues, "This now has moved into the moment that people will talk about years and years to come. They're going to be telling their kids, and their grandchildren. Nobody will ever forget this."

Grizzlies Western Conference Finals tickets for the first two games at FedExForum, aka "The Grindhouse", go on sale Saturday at noon.
