112-72 and the Grizz take the win over the Club team from Brazil Framengo.
108-72 not sure what the takeaway from this game will be. Starters we good but Flamengo made some runs early then talent took over.
Flamengo just 2 for 15 from the arc in the second half. Winding down here with Grizz up 38.
Wow Stoked just made a save by using one of the Flamengo player's face to bounce the ball off.... ouch
Here's a stat you won't see in a regular season NBA game: Flamengo with 29 turnovers, resulting in 43 Memphis points. And we have 6:00 left.
102-66 Grizz with 6:09 remaining
Stokes with a steal and he is fresh and just having fun in this game.
Jarnell Stokes putting in good minutes with five quick points and a steal. 100-66 with seven minutes left.
Stokes gets the rebound and scores off the Calathes miss, 5 quick points and he looks awesome sporting the Headband!
Stokes scores on the spin around and one.
Stokes enters the game for the Grizz so both rookies will see playing time tonight.
Patrick Christopher on the floor with Calathes, Adams, Earl Clark and Jarnell Stokes. Grizz up 32 with 8 minutes left.
Koufos, Adams, Calathes, Clark and Christopher on the floor for the Grizz
91-63 and anyone left at the game is probably smiling and possibly full of BBQ Nachos
Looks like a Flamengo player got his hand injured on that play... hate that and more reason to take everyone out.
Double K with the grab on the miss and puts it back in.
Tay has not played tonight, last year Coach Joerger rested the veteran most of the pre-season, so no surprises there.
End of the 3rd and the starters are most likely done in this one. Grizz up huge 86-54.
... followed by Nick Calathes ... interested to see how second unit fares in a blowout situation.
87-52 and this Flamengo team can shoot the 3
Jordan Adams checks in, and this should be fun
Ladies and gentlemen: Jordan Adams enters the game ....
Grizzlies outscoring Flamengo 23-4 in the 3rd quarter. Flamengo 2 of 15.
Gasol with 15 and 9 and one rebound away from a double-double, but probably done for the night in this blow out 78-45 late in the 3rd
I know a lot of folks passed on this game, but it's been a fun watch. Tony Allen is doing wondrous, head-scratching Tony Allen things.
Beno with 6 and back to the line to shoot more freethrows
Flamengo shooting a ice-cold 1 for 12 to start the third, 0 for 4 from three. Grizzlies up 35.
Flamengo has gone cold and 72-43 Grizz.... not sure how much the starters will keep playing
Tony Allen now has four steals and 14 points. Grizz are up 31, 7:35 3qtr. Griz shooting 59%, Flamengo down to 38% (1 for 7 in 3qtr).
Just think, Jordan Adams hasn't seen the floor tonight in this game... I can't wait for the fun he will bring to the regular season
Scoring for this starting lineup is very balanced. We just have to tighten up the rotations. The 2 rookies yet to play tonight
TA has 4 fouls early in the 3rd.
Gasol, best passing big man in possibly the history of the NBA.... just fun to watch his skills
Conley nails a 3
Yummmm BBQ Nachos... http://t.co/Tz2itVhs5c
For the Grizzlies, no Calathes yet, nor Jordan Adams or Tayshaun Prince FWIW. Second half about to begin....
People at the game should tweet pics of their food....
While we ponder the rotations, Grizz fan be like...... http://t.co/WTJpN5trzR
36 points in the paint, solid D... now to eliminate the turnovers
Grizzlies pour in 36 paint points and 13 on the break. Flamengo with 8 of 14 3pt FGs (they have 13 total FGs).
Halftime stats 62-41 Grizz Grizz are shooting 59% FG & 60% from 3
Courtney Lee buries a triple with .6 left for a 62-41 lead. Gasol leads all with 14. Tony Allen with 10. Grizz shoot 59% and force 20 TOs.
23-3 Grizz run and the starters are just punishing this team.
Gasol 14 pts 5 rebounds, 2 dunks
57-39 Grizz, Randolph gets a rebound and scores
Calathes lets the Flamengo player use his towel to wipe down the sweat...
Gasol is playing EN FUEGO just nailed a 15 footer...
We have so many options with this roster to work on rotation lineups, it is exciting to think we have a deep bench.
Just a reminder 888-HOOP and be there Grizz fans....
Quincy Pondexter putting in good minutes: 9 points in 9 minutes. Hasn't missed a shot or a FT.
Chemistry is the only real concern in these early games. The core group are playing solid, we just need to settle on the rotation players
Conley and Gasol back on the floor and order is restored. Grizz go back up 10 and Flamengo calls for time with 4:40 left in first half.
Conley feeds a cutting Grindfather and boom he scores.... and then a Gasol dunk.... Grizz up 48-36
ZBo feeds Q and a jailbreak dunk
Q headed to the line at a TO, 40-36 Grizz lead
Coach is looking a tad upset about all of the Grizz turnovers tonight...
Conley back in the game TA Leuer ZBo Q
Tony Allen with the steal, and TA is going doing TA things....
Q been reading twitter again and gets the dunk.... he is fueled by ya'll tweets
Flamengo has 11 field goals and 7 of them are threes. Grizzlies are 2 of 3 from distance and lead 38-36.
Flamengo scores another 3 and game is tied 36-36
Welcome sight: Quincy buries a triple. Unwelcome sight: Flamengo buries their 6th in 10 tries.
Q nails a 3 and boy did we need to see that!
Last year people wanted to see different lineups attempted, maybe this is why Coach Joerger said naw to all of that.
Grizzlies up to 9 turnovers. 15-point lead evaporated pretty quickly. Officials timeout at 8:58 of 2nd. Grizz up 31-30.
TA, ZBo, Beno, Q and Leuer in the game.... strange rotation and another turnover with this group
Getting a ton of fan feedback about concerns about Q. Reminder it is early... jury is still out....
Ground hog day as we turn the ball over and Badger commits the foul after the turn over. then Leuer redeems himself with the rebound & score
The defense isn't as intense with this 2nd unit. They look a little hesitant on the 13-0 run by Flamengo
11-0 run and now Q travels, this is a game of runs so far and Flamengo is running currently
Other 1st qtr numbers: Grizz force 11 TOs for 14 points, but Flamengo has 4 triples (of 6 FGM). Grizz 16 points in paint and 11 on the break
Good to see the starters producing and VC playing well from the bench, just got to get some 2nd string chemistry then watch out.
Grizz ended that qtr a little sloppy 27-20
1st QTR in the books and Grizz 12-23 for 52% FG and 1-2 50% from 3
15-27 and I want Jet's Pizza and some BBQ nachos, ya'll help a man out here
Leuer misses the shot, but glad to see Badger shooting
We've just witnessed a Marc Gasol-Kosta Koufos fast break. It was real and it was spectacular.
Vince with a very long 2, good
At the Grizzlies preseason game - had heard Marc Gasol is at peak of powers - all true. He looks incredible on both ends, runnin floor
Don't think Flamengo has seen this brand of defensive intensity. Down 10-2, Joerger called for time and told Grizz to "wake up." They have.
Cha Ching for me Vince Carter who hits the 3, man I hope I tweet that about a gazillion times this year! 21-12 Grizz
16-2 Grizz run and we looked like we have settled down. Conley is stealing the ball at will in this game
