The Memphis Hustle, The Memphis Grizzlies G-League affiliate, kicked off their inaugural game on Saturday Nov. 4, pulling out all the stops! There were face paintings, giveaways, Grizz Girls, The Blue Bunch Dance Team, Grizz, activities for the kids, and the Beale Street Flippers.

Of course, the most important thing was the game itself against the Sioux Falls SkyForce. The Hustle came out on fire, shooting 3 pointers and going to the basket. They led in the first half by 18 points but the SkyForce cut into the lead right before halftime, and ended up beating the Hustle 120-116 in a very exciting debut game.
