  1. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    9 seconds man. That's not a lot of time especially with the defense scrambling. I understand what you're saying and maybe Marc shouldda took a couple of dribbles to get closer before launching but I'm sure he was trying to quickly launch and give the team an opportunity to rebound if he missed. Marc was 3-6 from 3 at that point. He had the hot hand with 35 points. He was the most logical to take the shot. Should he have come up a step or 2, maybe but it's in the heat of the moment. I can't fault him for that. I can fault the team for jacking up so many 3's with 5 minutes left to play in the game. I can fault Brandan Wright for getting stuffed and then hanging on the rim affecting Reke's put back (which was probably too hard and even if it went in may have been offensive goaltending), I can fault Parsons for overdribbling and losing 3-4 seconds off the clock when he could have easily taken a 3 on that play where Marc got fouled and lastly I can fault Rio for not quickly passing the ball to Reke when he grabbed Marc's rebound. Instead he put it on the floor and tried to run behind the 3pt line, not enough time.

    They had 9 seconds left, had to go 94 feet and Reke, Rio and Parsons formed a wall to free him up and give him a good look. SHould have never been in that position to begin with but I'm not mad at that play.
  3. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    We have been chucking threes for the past 5 minutes and only a couple went in. Marc had a rebound at point blank range and threw it out to the three point line. This is obviously what Fizz wanted. I just don't get it. We were jacking 3's at the 5 minute mark and i have no idea why.
  4. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    Why in the world do we continue to jack threes? That's 4 straight possessions and we have 0 points. Luckily Indy has 0 as well but we could have gotten 4-6 points if we would have penetrated to the rim,
  5. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    McLemore is, who he is, no surprise to me. I wasn't big on his signing because for 4 years in Sactown it was all about his potential which he rarely reached. I don't see him just turning that on and reaching his full potential but I hope I am wrong.
  6. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    Tyreke is being a little too selfish this game, yes he has 9 assists but it's almost as if as soon as he throws an assist, he goes 1 one 20. He needs to pass the ball more in the 4Q.
  7. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    I would start Rio and still have Reke come off of the bench. I've been saying this for 2 weeks.
  8. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    He's not going to make the difference that people are expecting. He's slightly better at his position that Ennis is at his.
  9. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    Wow NSC, you just left Brooks out of the equation altogether? I would go with Brooks over McLemore as the starting 2-guard.I'm not impressed by McLemore, never have been. I would rotate McLemore, Selden and Ennis off of the bench. Depends on whoever is playing the best. I have been advocating starting Parsons along with JaM for awhile now. Parsons will help with ball movement in teh starting lineup, plus he has been playing good defense and doing a lot of small things that may not show up in the stat sheet. He's been a crafty player this year even if his offense isn't up to par so far. i think our best bet is to start Parsons as a stretch 4, JaM can guard 3's in a lot of situations Start: Conley/Brooks (or Selden)/Jam/Parsons/Gasol Bench: Rio/Reke/(Ennis or McLemore or Selden depending on the night)/ Wright as the backup 4/5
  10. Memphis @ Milwaukee 11/13/17

    I actually agree with this. There is no way this team can compete without Mike and Marc avg around 20 ppg. We don't have much depth on this team. We have a bunch of hope and potential. McLemore is not good, Selden is unproven, Brooks is unproven, Martin is slaw, Ennis is a non factor, Rio attack but is not the same since his injury, Parsons has contributed in other ways but really hasn't done much from a scoring perspective other than that 1 game. There is so much inconsistency on this team after Mike, Marc and Tyreke that we can't afford to have Mike and Marc be inconsistent as well and definitely can't have them not playing well as Mike has not been playing well recently. We're not good enough to consistently win without those two having major scoring contributions.
  11. Memphis @ Milwaukee 11/13/17

    Dillon Brooks led starters in scoring. That's all i need to know about this game.
  12. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    I have no idea what Fizzball is. I have no idea what the system is. I have no idea what players will fit the system. Everybody wants pure shooters but they are low in supply (and we traded one away). A bigger more, durable Reke sounds like Z-Bo who we got rid of and we have so called 3 and d players in Ennis, McLemore, and to acertain degree Selden and rooks although Brooks seems to be a more complete player. There's so much one on one play with this team that it has to be by design which is not a good thing because it leads to unstructured play. We're still near the bottom of the league in assists so we're not getting any ball movement, no spacing just iso plays or 3 point shots. Our offense is not good right now.
  13. The grizzlies have 2 problems with the starting unit

    Where exactly did I say that Marc was terrible? i never said that nor did I imply that. McLemore is McLemore. You can check his track record at Sac. I would rather start Brooks at this point and JaM should help because he's better than Martin, but I don't see him changing things too much.
  14. The grizzlies have 2 problems with the starting unit

    Can't argue with that. I have no idea what fizzball is. A lot of people criticize Tyreke for going one on one but if you watch the games you'll notice it's not just Tyreke, it's Tyreke, It's Conley, it's Rio, it was Harrison, it's Brooks, etc and people just stand around. We are one of the worst assists team in the league. Also, Fizz's rotations are horrible. I mentioned that last year as well. It seems like he sometimes sits guys who are playing well and puts in guys who are playing as well. Heck, we might be better off starting our bench at this point because they are constantly getting us out of the holes that the starting unit puts us in. With all of that being said, if Mike and Marc were playing normally, we would have won at least half of the games we have lost so far.
  15. So the grizz can offer reke about 4yr 40 million, right?

    i agree that there's a logjam ate the wing right now. I just don't see McLemore or Selden making him expendable. Tyreke has done what he's doing now in the NBA before, neither Selden nor McLemore have even come close. Brooks has kind of created a problem by playing better than they expected. I am actually fine with this and think that this will play itself out and I see injuries happening and i also think we will just have to go with who is bringing the most energy or has the hottest hand. Out of our swingman, Tyreke and Ennis don't have contracts for next year. It will work itself out but I don't see Selden nor McLemore making Tyreke expendable. I just don't see them scoring at the rate that he does.
  16. Butch Jones Fired

    I have no idea how Jones lasted as long as he did tbh.
  17. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    He has a sore Achilles and has had one all season. Have no idea why they refuse to rest him, well, more than that one game he sat out. He should sit out for at least a week, maybe two. I think i first mentioned this almost two weeks ago. We have lost four out of our last 6 games. Mike sat out the Magic game which we lost. I don't think our record would have been any worse during that stretch if he sat all 6 games. Gasol needs to sit out a week as well. It's obvious teh grizz don't believe you're injured until something pops, snaps or breaks. Otherwise, they will continue to trot you out there,
  18. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    WHo blamed the start on Brooks/ I said he was better than Harrison but something isn't clicking. If anything, I would take Martin out and start Parsons.
  19. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    We need to do something about the slow starts with the 1st unit, not sure what. Brooks is better than Harrison but it's still not clicking.
  20. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    Yeah, I was hoping they replaced him with DD. Yeah, i'm fine with it. He should not be playing more than 20 mpg until January. Through Jan, I would let him play 20-25 mpg and then maybe mid-March let him play 30 mpg. I like this overly conservative approach. It allows his body to get used to the grind without having the full grind. I bet if he would have been playing 30-35 mpg from the jump, he would be sitting for soreness or some other minor injury by now.
  21. Memphis @ Houston 11/11/17

    This was in yesterday's CA: So BennyMac is back, sounds like we're looking at next week for JaM and Selden could pop up at anytime.
  22. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    He has been passing, but people have not been hitting wide open shots or in the case of Parsons, passing shots up. He's got a good rapport with Wright and likes to dump off to him in the lane but if people hit wide open jumpers, Reke easily could average at least 1.5 more apg. I predict Reke will get at least 1 triple double this season with the Grizz, maybe 2.
  23. Lorenzen Wright

    I'm thinking more along the lines of a darn good informant. That's just way too random. Someone had to tell them that was there. Who knows if it recently found itself there or if it has been there the past 7 years but finding it in a random lake in MS 75 miles outside of Memphis sounds more like an informant told them something, which could be a good thing because it may lead to solving the case.
  24. So the grizz can offer reke about 4yr 40 million, right?

    Really KBM? You have been bashing Reke since the day he was signed, now all of a sudden out of the blue you are concerned about if we can resign him?
  25. Memphis @ Portland 11/07/17

    Agreed, it's been hard to watch. I'm struggling, especially with the late start,
