    Cant blame the defense. Held POR to 39% shooting or thereabouts, but could not take advantage of it because of ridiculous players like Harrison who gave NOTHING and the whole team shot worse than POR-like 38%. No team is going to shoot 38% from the field and win games. Their problem is for some reason after their 5-1 start, they simply cannot put the ball through the rim. Bricks all around and when they miss, they got outrebounded by over 20 rebounds. Yes yes I know, POR is a good rebounding team. I get it, but to be outrebounded by 20 means you didnt want to rebound at all tonight. Fiz has got problems and until someone mans up and starts to shoot the darned ball, it probably wont get better. I saw on here where someone posted that Parsons shot wasnt falling enough so he stopped shooting. That is the exact WRONG thing to do. If you are a scorer and you miss some shots, you dont stop shooting. CJ McCollum started the game missing several shots, but he didnt stop shooting. Got a bunch of fraidy cats who are so scared to be called selfish or labeled a ball hog that if they miss a shot, they want to stop shooting. Start pump faking and as soon as you see that, you can bet its over. When you see an open shot, you take it because you might not get another one during that shot clock. But not MEM, got folks overpassing and dribbling one on one. The offense is sick and needs help. The defense is not going to shut down teams enough to overcome 38% shooting and -20+ on the glass. It aint happenin. So not thats 5 losses in a row and its not the defense.

    I have seen some of his box scores. He certainly has.
  3. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    I was disappointed when we dumped him. In a league where shooting is at a premium, we got rid of the best shooter we had. Oh well, such is life with the Grizzlies.

    LOL. Gotcha.
  5. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    Gotcha. Thanks for the info. I had forgotten about Rabb.

    I thank the good Lord every game that we have Tyreke. For one thing, he doesnt lack for confidence. He isnt scared to shoot the ball. He will step up and score or at least try to score when no one else will when Marc is getting double and triple teamed as soon as he gets the ball.

    agreed. Do you know who Arab is? Apparently he is in the concussion protocol but I have no idea who he is.
  8. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    I hear ya. I mean to be down only 9 after shooting the way we did and all the fouls--well we are fortunate. Personally, I thought we played okay defense, but the fouls and being outrebounded by around 20 and shooting so atrociously just kept us down. If they come out in the 2nd half and hit a couple of shots and get some stops, we can be right in the game. I completely agree with you.
  9. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    did he reinsure his leg or reinjure his leg? Sorry if Im not up to speed but who is Arab?
  10. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    15 fouls called on MEM and only 8 on POR. Pretty significant disparity there.
  11. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    THIS^^^ WIthout Tyreke, we would be down 20+. Our All Star caliber center is shooting 4-12. Now Im sure he is getting doubled and tripled at times, but he is struggling.
  12. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    exactly
  13. Portland @ Memphis 11/20/17

    whatever

    Selden is this years Jordan Adams. Just going to be hurt all the time and Chris Wallace at al will say nothing about it like they are guarding nuclear codes or something.

    FYI, POR is outrebounding MEM 39-17. Yes thats right--we are being outrebounded by 22 in a half of basketball.
