TSN is rebroadcasting multiple Vancouver Grizzlies games this week

Jul 6 2020, 6:43 pm

If you still miss the Vancouver Grizzlies, you’re in for a rare treat this week.

TSN is broadcasting five Grizzlies games from their Vancouver days in the next three days, beginning with two games tonight.

It begins with the first-ever game in Grizzlies franchise history, against Portland in 1995, and ends with the last game before the team moved to Memphis, against Steve Francis and the Houston Rockets.

Other highlights include the first-ever all-Canadian matchup in NBA history (Grizzlies vs Raptors from 1995) and a game against Steve Nash during his rookie season (Grizzlies vs Suns from 1997).

Date Time Channel Game Year
Mon, Jul 6 5:30 PM TSN 4 VAN vs POR 1995
Mon, Jul 6 7:30 PM TSN 4 VAN vs TOR 1995
Tue, Jul 7 5:00 PM TSN 3 VAN vs PHO 1997
Tue, Jul 7 7:00 PM TSN 3 VAN vs MIL 2001
Wed, Jul 8 5:30 PM TSN 3 Van vs HOU 2001

Noticeably absent from the list of games are perhaps the two most memorable games in Vancouver Grizzlies history, their first-ever home game and Michael Jordan’s first visit to GM Place in 1995.

But hey, beggars can’t be choosers.
