GRIZZLIES' MAGIC NUMBER DOWN TO 4,086

     The Grizzlies announced they've sold 304 season-tickets over
the past week to bring their total to 8,414.  They still need to
sell 4,086 to reach the NBA mandated minimum of 12,500 by the
December 31st deadline.  Grizzlies GM Stu Jackson said he was
"more confident today" than he was two weeks ago about the team
reaching the minimum.  They still must average a thousand sales a
week to reach 12,500, but Jackson said the team is involved in
negotiations with members of the corporate community to help
reach that goal. The team will bring Magic Johnson to Vancouver
next Wednesday to put the "hard sell" on potential corporate
ticket buyers (Elliott Pap, VANCOUVER SUN, 11/25).  But,
according to Howard Tsumura of the Vancouver PROVINCE, a "check
of some of Vancouver's biggest money players indicated that
interest towards large block sales was lukewarm" (Vancouver
PROVINCE, 11/25).
