Got a little too aggressive there…maybe could have gotten a foul call, but refs are letting a lot go it seems. Gotta recognize that and not force it at the rim.
My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson

I've been watching the Grizzlies broadcast for this one. They're not happy with the officials at all.

We're up 19 yes but shades of that 4th quarter against Kings

Ridiculous 2mins to end the half
Nonchalant sloppy play started to creep in

Last time we ended a half like that we came out in the 3rd still "too Kool for Skool"

Suns are looking like the playoff Suns right now. Very strong.

McGee - 2 minutes, 3 fouls.
He got poked in the eye a couple of games ago and is still struggling with it.
Notice he switched goggles/glasses early.

Which is to be expected when the refs are letting a lot of contact go and your team is losing. You notice the stuff that could be called.

He's been used strictly as the 3rd guard. Blowouts or Injuries

Pretty sure he's only getting minutes if Paul or Booker are out.

How can Booker be so good at everything except throwing a lob pass? It's almost seems like a mental block for him sometimes.

The Grizzlies defense reminds me of the Suns first week of the season.

Well, I guess the question now is whether or not the bench can hold the lead when the starters come out?

Great to see the team clicking so well on both ends.

Was about to question Nader off the bench first in the 2nd half and then he goes and gets a steal on his 1st possession, so I’ll keep quiet
