Very good game so far. Interesting matchup with ZBo and Marc vs Carmelo and Chandler. Knicks got a better bench.
Also Rasheed Wallace playing peace keeper. Lol. Damn people can mature. When Austin Rivers hit the dagger 3 against Unc, the unc players wanted to run into the their locker room without shaking the Duke players hand. Wallace made them go back on the court to do it. Respect.
I was at the game...During the 3rd quarter when Memphis lead by 21,Wallace got his 1st technical in years...He kept shouting to some of Memphis players'''Yall got come to the Garden!!!! hahahaha
Majority of people love to talk about the Thunder, Spurs and Lakers, but don't sleep on these Grizzlies.
IF healthy, I think this team could win the championship.
Mike Conley has really stepped up and improved his game the last 2 years......Every since he had been with them,they had been constantly auditioning point guards who they thought could replace him..But Conley has out lasted them all......Tony Allen also deserves some praise,his in your face defensive style has spread all over the team..Before Allen got there,Memphis was 1 of the worst defensive teams in the league.....
If all of their key players stay healthy,and the outside shooters can hit their shots..Memphis can win a ring.....
I'd also add... if Rudy Gay can reign in his erratic shot selection. Off balance, reverse spinning fadeaways like he hit in the first quater are not high percentage shots. More often then not they are a wasted possesion.
