Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley has added to the excitement of the Grizzlies' regular season home opener by purchasing 500 tickets that will be given away in the Grand Lobby at FedExForum starting at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Coming off last season's record-setting campaign, in which the Grizzlies won 26 of 33 at home during the regular season, Memphis' floor general wanted to assist members of Grizz Nation to get ready for another season of grit-and-grind action.
"Our fans' enthusiasm has helped make FedExForum one of the NBA's loudest and toughest buildings for opponents to visit," Conley said. "We want to see that same atmosphere carry over to Opening Night and the rest of this season."
Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be a limit of two tickets per person.
The Grizzlies will host the Utah Jazz in their 2012-13 regular season home opener, presented by First Tennessee Bank, at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5 at FedExForum. Fans are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy the Opening Night Plaza Party. Beginning two hours prior to tip-off the Plaza Party will feature music, inflatables, face painters, balloon artists, official Grizzlies merchandise, sign-making stations and an interactive video game trailer. Other highlights include appearances from Grizz, the Grizz Girls and Claw Crew. Also, the first 10,000 fans through the doors will receive a Grizzlies T-Shirt presented by First Tennessee.
