Chris Herrington covers the Memphis Grizzlies and writes about Memphis culture, food, and civic life. He lives in the Vollintine-Evergreen neighborhood of Midtown with his wife, two kids, and two dogs.

He face-guarded Bane. He hounded Jaren Jackson Jr. into a miss and then sank a 3-pointer over Ziaire Williams. He drove and finished over center Bismack Biyombo. He scored on baseline cuts and pull-up jumpers. And praised a young Grizzly.
