Jesus Al. What in the fuck..
Do we know that they aren't doing this already? I can't even tell anymore from night to night.I'm going to keep saying it, but as long as guys are playing like shit, Brad needs to stop worrying about spacing out minutes and making sure everyone gets theirs, and finding groups that work, and sticking with them for as long as he can. Rest should be for rest, not because it's time for another guy to get his...
I’m well aware of that. Hence, the question. At some point, especially if this keeps up, tough moves may need to be made to preserve value for future seasons.So you are just looking to give up on the season? He has probably been the second best player on the team this season.
Memphis is basically the Celtics team right now. Almost the same record. They've got ugly losses, like a home loss to the Knicks, and they've got good wins, like their one last week against the Bucks. Just totally inconsistent.Just a reminder that this isn't last year's Memphis team. They have a rejuvenated Gasol and Conley, Jackson Jr. who is a ROY also-ran just because Luka has been so amazing and they are a top five defensive club in all of the NBA. Playing the Grizzlies at home is not easy for anyone. "Bad" is a loose term but I wouldn't characterize them as such. They aren't great or even consistent but neither are the Celtics.
The good news is if Boston starts to shoot a bit more efficiently and force the Grizzlies to work harder down low, they can easily get back in this game.
It was an issue before TL/Baynes went down.But without Baynes they don't have anyone to play the 5? Theis and Al together seems like a not great idea. I dunno.
