  1. Garland tore his meniscus (happened right in front of me) and had no lasting long term effects. They took him out at the next dead ball and he went straight to the locker room. Quick action probably helped. And the doctors at Vanderbilt are really good. I had my knee rebuilt there and it ended up better than new. But VUMC doesn't have "Gamma Knife" (nobody in Nashville does) and I went to Wake Forest to get that particular type of radiation shot at my melon. (nothing to do with knees or basketball obviously)
  2. I'm going out on a limb and guessing JJJ won't be starting. Or finishing.

    Starters were 4 of 31 from three??

    The most valuable three point make yesterday for the Grizz was Shake Milton's game winner to keep San Antonio at a distance in the standings but unless the Grizz can start remembering how to win, it won't matter.

    Effort & body language

    They didn't keep guys like Crowder and Hill... then ended up having to get different veterans instead. I like Toliver but they could have simply kept the other two instead of trading for a guy who still hasn't played a single minute in a Grizz uniform. And where is Deng? Why is he glued to the bench when other tall guys get in foul trouble? I think this flame-out in the re-start is going to get Taylor Jenkins on the hot seat for next season.

    Starters were 4 of 31 from three??

    Part of why the starters shot 13% from three is they hesitated to take wide open threes earlier in the shot clock to settle for contested ones later in the shot clock. If you pass up a wide open three early in the clock... somebody better get a point blank look for a two. And that goes back to coaching strategy as well as personnel.
  6. My mother-in-law could hit 4 of 31 from three and she has two fractured vertebrae. And a neck brace. People are going to talk about the disgraceful total of 32 fouls and certainly they will have a point. But besides a rim protector (JV can't do it sitting on the bench)... this team needs guards. And Melton is a notch above G-league. Allen was 5-6 from three and only committed two fouls in 31 minutes. He is showing some signs of proving himself. But the lack of real quality depth is being exposed in this restart. This team is not going to make it into champagne territory with beer talent/depth. The team has gone from Old Milwaukee depth (Deyonta Davis, Kobi Simmons, etc) to Miller Light. But nowhere near Champagne.
  7. My Hulu program guide shows it on both the big ESPN and on Fox Sports regional. To be honest, I need to cut the yard. Thus it looks like a DVR game... that means if we don't win, I don't have to watch. I can simply long on here and see all the expert analysis on what went wrong who which player screwed it up. And/or coaching decision.
  8. Would much rather see JV in late than Brooks. Maybe Tyus will be back soon.
  9. Can we get a mid first round draft slot for Brooks? I would take Nesmith for him right now.
  10. If we don't hang on for a playoff spot, his 3-7 at the line yesterday will loom large. We needed that win.
  11. Would you guys call Melton's 42% at the free throw line yesterday frustrating? He a guard. Not Shaq. Not Wilt. If he shoots 57% at the line yesterday (not too much to ask of a guard)... Grizz win by one in regulation.
  12. I would love to see Saben Lee get a look as an UDFA. He's a very long 6-3 kind of guard, very athletic.
  13. The wannabe substitute coach in "Hoosiers" was actually right when he said "you can't score if you don't shoot" thus I think Jaren's fouls are the bigger issue right now. Because you CAN play defense without fouling out in the 3rd quarter without making all the mental mistake cheap fouls.

    TV for the three scrimmages

    What if, for example, you live in Mojave in a Winnebago? No cable and maybe internet...streaming if you are lucky.

    JJJ and fouls

    It's the fouls JJJ commits 30 to 70 feet from the basket. Cut those out and it's a couple of less fouls per game. And thus maybe he doesn't foul out. Maybe.
