The final plaza party before playoffs will feature the final playoff swag pick-up, food trucks, playoff giveaways, and live music.

However, there’s no party like the party inside the FedExForum.

“This year has been exciting in FedExForum, more so than any regular season, I think,” said Dennis O’Conner, vice president of ticket sales and service sales. “We are looking forward to extending that into the playoffs. Like I said, [for] Grizz Nation, FedExForum puts on the best show in the league in playoffs and we are real excited to see what happens next weekend when we get it cranked up.”

The dates and times of home playoff games for the Grizzlies have yet to be announced.

Grizz fans are encouraged to show their fandom by posting photos and videos of their blue and gold Grizz love to social media tagging @memgrizz and using the hashtag #BigMemphis.
