    Utah Jazz @ Memphis Grizzlies - 1/8/2023

    I mean all-star nods to tend to be heavily favored to offense over defense in general. But, as far as which player is impacting winning more with his play this season, it is clearly JJJ. You know, because defense also exists. (not meant to knock Markkanen particularly, he's having a great year, but whatever gap there is in offense between him and JJJ, the gap in defense is bigger, because Jaren has been truly outstanding there overall).
  2. I thought Dillon did a pretty great defensive job on Zion the last time they played, for the possessions that he defended him. I'm curious to see how that plays out again, altho someone as good offensively as Zion is a threat to go off against any defender. Mostly I'm looking for the team to play with high energy and with high execution they way they can. They kinda lost that in that 4 out of 5 losses streak, Toronto was a step in the right direction.

    I guess? I don't really get why removing the stabilizing hand is supposed to actually help, from a technique, accuracy or repeatable standpoint. Maybe as some middle point in the rebuilding of a shot? But don't see it as a long term thing. Steve-o and other bad free throw shooters would probably be better served committing to underhanded free throws honestly. But there's a stigma that it looks dumb so no one's interested.
  4. There are a lot of non-grizz fans that think it was a pretty absurd tech, for whatever it's worth. I'm done though.
  5. It's only tech worthy if you are extraordinarily thin skinned to the point of being bad at your job, imo. I mean it's fine, we don't have to see it the same way. I'm not out here on an island on this though, clearly. https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2022/12/17/23514854/ja-morant-ejection-video-fan-courtside-facetime-dad-grizzlies-thunder https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nba/news/ja-morant-fan-ejection-grizzlies-vs-thunder/krvwjlmkqfnevbmchpz2b9hs https://www.yardbarker.com/nba/articles/nba_fans_react_to_ja_morant_getting_ejected_after_talking_to_a_fan_nba_refs_are_a_joke/s1_16751_38255275
  6. He was having a friendly interaction with a fan of his, wasn't even facing in the general direction of any ref. Had nothing to do with the ref until he inserted himself and made it about him and not the game. I guarantee every ref hears worse stuff than "I can't get a whistle" said directly to them, 50+ times every single game. And this wasn't even directed at a ref. Thin skinned, reactionary, horrible call. You won't be able to convince me otherwise..
  7. This is an absurd reason to give someone a tech. One of the worst I've seen in a while.

    All things JJJ

    He's definitely putting the various pieces of his game together in a more complete way than he has done previously and more consistently. It's great to see.

    Nah, Danny hasn't won his last ring. He's got another one coming in Memphis. šŸ˜

    Is Desmond Bane challenging for the #2 rank?

    Not gonna lie, I worry more when Bane misses games than literally anyone else on the team. His shooting and spacing is just so helpful and needed. Hope the team can get some W's without him and that he can come back before too long.

    Did The Utah Jazz Expose Memphis Weakness?

    I think the Grizz need to get after it more on the defensive end than they have to start the season. Still early in the season and no reason to panic about it yet though. JJJ being out and not having Melton/Anderson has had an effect, but the Grizz need to find a way to play better D with the personel logging minutes now, and I think they know that. Utah has a number of solid veterans who are playing good team ball to start the season, and they further highlighted our early-season shortcomings on defense, imo, but it has been a consistant trend so far.

    Is Desmond Bane challenging for the #2 rank?

    It's 3 games. It hadn't even occurred to me to be worried yet.

    When will JJJ return to the court?

    JJJ's injury updates, though nothing to take at face value probably still, do feel different than 2 years ago. Then, it was just long stretches of radio silence. Now, JJJ, Jenkins, etc, all seem to be occasionally letting loose some optimism about his recovery. We'll see how it ends up turning out.

    I think BC is a bit underrated in general and love the extension for the Grizz. Another nice one from this front office.
