Mayo must match Harden's production for the 2nd unit. OJ did a great job of that during the playoffs, but now he must become an efficient scorer off the bench like Manu and jet terry.

THE thunder WILL NOT WIN IN THE GRINDHOUSE THIS YEAR. PERIOD, END OF STORY.

I really hope Rudy doesn't come out and try to show up Durant. If he plays like Swiss Army knife Rudy instead of ball stopping Rudy we'll be fine.

That's like asking your dog not to be a dog. You must expect the Baltimore guys to go at each other. That's just natural competition. I just wish Vasquez would be there because he's always ultra-hyped to go up against him. This might be the night we let the secret weapon out in garbage time -

Unleash the Selby!..Lol but seriously I don't think he's going to see the floor much unless it's a blowout.

I don't care who the other team is we have to work on our selfs.

 

Zbo has to get it going -rusty-

Hollins needs to set the rotation.

Go small --Skinner sucks @ $ $--

Grizzlies should go small vs. OKC. Who's gonna score in the post for them, Perkins, Ibaka and Collison? Just go small when they go to the bench and make them match up

1+ No reason why OJ can't average at least what he did as a rookie as 6th man. We need 18-20 PPG out of him, consistently, and we need him to be a threat to go for 30.

I think the problem is that Skinner hasn't bleached his beard yet, therefore his game is off.

This may come out the wrong way, but I truely think Hollins has been holding back the potential of this team. We were all so amazed about what the Grizsz did in the playoffs that we sometimes forget they were an 8th seed.

 

I'll give Hollins propps for establish the inside game. Ok I granted you your wish ( Kevin B Moses) but the rest after has been horrendous.

 

 

why can Hollins just follow the OKC model? if you look at OKC team everybody knows their role. Many times they only have 2 out of their 5 starters even scoring in double figures ( Westbrook and Durant). A defensive specialist that starts and see only 20 limited minutes in Sefolosha. Then they have their instant offense/playmaker Harden give the bench double that sees 30-35 minutes a game. Then their rest of their bench just has blue collared workers like Collison and Maynor.

 

The Grizzlies have all this AND more. but Hollins simply refuses to show it. Give Tony 20 minutes a night, so he gives full effort. Pound the ball into Zach/Gasol everytime, then use Gay a little to keep the defense guessing. Conley should the one running the offense and most importantly taken care of the ball. Plug in OJ to come in with 2nd team run plays for him and put the ball in his hands to make plays.

 

 

We started doing this in the playoffs ( outside of not having Gay), but like Hollins wants to start all over again.

 

get it together Lionel.
