  2. i get the vibe that you just don't like him in general which is fine. he rarely ever takes a bad shot, but I 100% agree that he should diversify his offense more considering that he has shown plenty of ability to attack closeouts, shoot floaters, and get to the rim. especially as a 90% FT shooter, he should attack and draw fouls more often (his best season at duke, he was shooting like 7 FTs a game). strictly speaking on their grizzlies careers, he compares more than favorably to bane and melton. melton and allen are both better than bane overall right now and i believe are both in top 10-20 of RPM for all NBA SGs. they all need/deserve minutes, it's a problem that jenkins is going to have to balance moving forward barring a trade. that depth will be helpful w/ how condensed of a schedule the 2nd half of the season will be. i really wish melton could actually handle the ball better/play PG so we could more often see backcourt lineups w/ all 3 of them. that would really raise melt's ceiling.

  4. It's called a scouting report, nobody is going to consistently go off on catch and shoot threes. When 70% of your shot attempts are catch and shoot threes you will be up and down. A good offensive player can consistently find other ways to produce like the way that Bane and Melton gets points by filling the lanes. Jenkins is not the problem, he doesn't limit players at all, has let people like Dillon, Crowder, Josh Jackson jack at will and the ball moves like crazy. Allen is the only player that makes very little effort to get points in other ways other than catch and shoot and most of time passes it like a hot potato when a man squares him up which is why I don't like him at all. Also I hate the talk about "you weren't saying anything when he was doing this." Everybody talks more when a player they don't like does bad and vice versa when a player they like plays well. What speaks is their entire body of work and I don't see how Allen stacks up to Bane or Melton right now overall performance wise He may stack up to Bane, but Bane is a rookie not a 25 year old third year player so ofcourse I'm taking him.

    Melton was certainly a bright spot last night dropping 16 after a DNP. I think he should be playing over one of Grayson or Bane as those two bring essentially the same thing. Or maybe cut Dillon's minutes, but we do need his size to guard SFs.

    he's been surprisingly good this season. i never thought he'd ever be more than an elite defender givinge you 8-10 pts a game. been impressive for sure.
  7. 100%, his and the team's ceiling on offense is severely capped until that improves. would hope that he can become a 35% 3pt shooter.
  8. he had 10 points just the night before against the clips, and his action was cut short last night after getting elbowed in the face. the 2 games before that his scoring rate was for sure down, but how many shot attempts per game is he getting recently compared to how scorching he'd been in the 10+ games before that? you conveniently weren't saying anything then but now you're pounding your chest. same for bane, he also needs more shot attempts whether that's starting or off the bench . jenkins needs to run more actions to get them on the move rather than having them sit in the corners/wings waiting for defenses to collapse on ja before they find a shot. all the wings scoring will suffer individually because now they're all healthy/available --> dillon, winslow, allen, melton, bane. too many options that all deserve minutes. they'll eventually have to make a consolidation trade.

    Looking at the big picture Ja has to be able to develop a 3 in order to open things up for us.
  10. Off night? He has 17 total points in 4 straight games at 24 mpg, neither Bane or Melton would never be that pathetic as a starter. Also btw Melton shoots 6.6 threes per 36 and Grayson shoots 7.4 threes per 36 and Grayson only shoots 2% better. This is Grayson's strongest area vs. Melton weakest area and they are comparable so enough said on that. Bane is a rookie who is already shooting much higher clips so you develop him because he will probably get better at things like defense with experience. Bane was also smoking before he had the absence, don't know if that family loss is affecting him but he needs his starting job back to hopefully get him going. Both are a few years younger.

    Just wanna say, I don't know how Norman Powell can be compared to Melton, this dude is a scorer, people should have a good look at his game log for the season. If Melton came anywhere near Powell's game log, he'd be hands down the Grizzlies starting SG. It's a moot point because we ain't getting Powell, but that's one dude who could definitely raise the stocks of this team.

    This is true Jenkins needs to start developing plays for Bane and Allen rather than just sending them out there saying show us what you got. And yes, Ja needs to be better at converting opportunities. And I agree with Toke about feeding Jonas, early and often, and when the defense is keying on our shooters

    Had my cousin's birthday to go to. It was a 4pt game with 2:45 left in the 2nd and they hit 3s and another basket just before the break, and then their first possession of the 2nd half hit another 3; we scored one FT in that time. Against a high calibre team like this, that's the ball game right there. There wasn't much in it other than that, but we can't afford 17pt qtr, we don't have the offensive firepower to come back from such a deficit, especially against a reasonably good defensive team

  15. Clarke's 3 points in 16 minutes and a +/- of -19 makes me think he plays better as a starter than off the bench. Anderson/JV/Morant/DB/Clarke until JJJ is back... then JJJ/JV/Morant /DB/Anderson as starters.
  16. defenders are sticking w/ bane and allen, yet jenkins rarely runs any actions to get them open off the move. planting them in the corners to prevent help defense off ja is great in general, but ja has to convert better than 7-20 from the field in that case. no reason why allen and bane aren't getting 6-7 3 pt attempts a game.
  17. why? better volume 3 pt shooter than melton, better defender than bane, plays his role well. having an off night and not getting many opportunities on offense. at least 2 of his few shot attempts were last second/end of shot clock shots. can't use this game to make such a definitive statement. if anything, bane is by far the most 1-dimensional compared to melton and allen.
  18. The LaVine ship has sailed
  19. Grayson (zero points), BC, Bane and Tyus all out to lunch in this game.
  20. Good night for JV: team high 22 pts/11 reb/ 3 ast/1 stl. Ja too: 20 pts/4 reb/5 ast/2 stl.
