DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - After years of struggling in the bowels of the NBA's lower tier, the Memphis Grizzlies have gritted and grinded their way to become one of the best in the league.

This year marks the fourth consecutive appearance for the Grizz in the playoffs.

But it hasn't been an easy road.

First there was the departure of head coach Lionel Hollins after the team made it to the Western Conference Finals. Then a sluggish start to the 2013-14 season was followed by a slew of injuries that cast some doubt on whether they would make the playoffs at all.

But, in typical Grizz fashion, the Boys in Beale Street Blue came roaring back.
