The sport of basketball has held a firm place among America's most beloved pastimes ever since it spun off from the popular breakfast spread NBA Jam. Spread your friends across a row of seats with today's Groupon, which gets you one ticket to see the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7 p.m. on October 30 at FedExForum on Beale Street. Tickets purchased through today's deal can be ordered online and picked up at the arena's will-call office. Choose from the following seating options:
- $15 for a terrace level seat (up to $47 value)
- $50 for a club level seat (a $99 value)
This season marks the 10th anniversary of the Grizzlies' arrival in Memphis, and after a scorching-hot preseason, the team is poised to celebrate its first decade in town with a campaign of ruthless, rim-rattling domination. Follow the deft dribblery and behind-the-back misdirection of mighty hoopsters Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, and O.J. Mayo as the Grizzlies take on Western Conference rivals the Minnesota Timberwolves in basketball's version of nature's version of the Hatfields and McCoys. Famished fans can fuel their hip-hip-hooraying with the help of a variety of concessions and dining options, stopping to admire the arena's numerous musically themed areas on the way back to their seats.
The Grizzlies finished last season seventh in the NBA in points per game, providing FedExForum fans with plenty of cause to cheer, high-five, and shake hands in genial recognition of each play's fortunate outcome. During breaks in the upcoming game action, basketball buffs can also follow the hard-court hijinks of Grizz, the team's mascot, who distributes t-shirts, stirs up crowd passions, and—like real grizzly bears—turns blue when his competitive hackles are raised.
