Suns-Warriors after Raptors-Grizzlies is cleansing my basketball soul – 10:59 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks said Fred VanVleet is a great player that brings it, and he’s a challenging cover with his energy, offensive game (shooting, playmaking), and his IQ. He did what he could to limit touches, get him out of rhythm, and help Memphis win – 10:40 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks on how he’s seen the game grow in Canada: It started when he watched VC, Steve Nash, + Jamaal Magalorie – showed his generation that Canadians can get to the NBA.
“There’s so much talent — phenoms are coming out of Canada, and guys that are getting it out the mud” – 10:38 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks said he knows his game, and he wants his guys to prosper. When it comes to gut-check time, he wants all his guys with him. He said everyone’s doing great at relishing his role, and he’s ready to do whatever he can to help them win — defense, energy, etc. – 10:36 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks on defensive stops tonight: He said they didn’t lay their head down when offense wasn’t going, and he said they made the right, winning plays tonight — the plays that win games and championships. Called tonight a “hard-fought battle” – 10:35 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks on saying it’s “his house” and winning in Toronto for the first time in awhile. He said Jamaal Magalorie kept telling him it was their house, and he wasn’t having it – 10:34 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Dillon Brooks: “This game was circled, for sure… I love playing here. It’s been a dream. I still have catalogues from when Vince Carter, Antonio Davis and Alvin Williams were playing here.” – 10:34 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks has had this game circled on his calendar for awhile — he hasn’t played here since his rookie year. He loves playing in Toronto and loves the culture. Said he still has albums from when Vince Carter and Antonio Davis was on the Raptors – 10:33 PM

Dillon Brooks says he’s had this game circled on his calendar. – 10:33 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks is always a willing participant for Team Canada ball for the qualifiers, and he wasn’t with them this year because he wanted to focus on his craft at home, and the hand surgery set him back too – 10:33 PM
Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Dillon Brooks says he hasn’t spoken to Canada basketball about playing for the team. But he says he’s a willing participant – 10:32 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
He’s shooting unreal. His balance is so pure…”
“He can really do it all out there…It is what we expect from him. It is not surprising to me. I see him work. I see him doing it.”
-Jaren Jackson Jr. on Desmond Bane – 10:30 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jaren Jackson on the film adjustments and communication in defensive stops: He pointed to how Toronto came out last week and hit them in the mouth, and he said they just had to stay focused through their aggressiveness.
Closed with: “Don’t weather the storm, be the storm” – 10:30 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jaren Jackson on the level Desmond Bane’s been playing with: “He’s shooting an unreal percentage right now” — points out his balance, how he can do more than just shoot and those things are limitless. Said we’ve seen this since Summer League – 10:27 PM

Taylor Jenkins is here for postgame. I asked about differences in execution between last week and tonight. He said it was eerily similar with the halftime lead and the Raptors pressure, but the Grizzlies’ stops were huge in this one. Made enough defensive plays in the 4th – 10:09 PM

The Grizzlies have never trailed in the two games played without Ja Morant this season. Finding ways to win without their leader has got be a great confidence boost.
Great hoops all around. “Resilient group,” Bane said on TV.

For the 3rd straight game, the Raptors fail to break 100 points. They’ve lost 10 of their last 13 games and fall to 2-8 in Toronto, tying them with Detroit for the 2nd-worst home record in the NBA (only the 1-8 Magic are worse). The reigning champion Bucks come to town Thursday. – 9:54 PM

Scottie Barnes from 3 over his first 15 NBA games: 2-for-13.

Raptors pressing a bit too much. Refs missed VanVleet getting hit in the face, but the rest were probably real no-calls because they were forces (maybe one could have been a call). Dillon Brooks hits a jumper and Grizzlies threatening to put this away if Toronto doesn’t respond. – 9:26 PM

Malachi Flynn, Dalano Banton, Isaac Bonga, Yuta Watanabe, and Chris Boucher is an… interesting lineup – 9:13 PM

Raps trail by 5, and VanVleet rests with 2:40 to go in the third. Will be get to sit out all of it? I say yes. – 9:10 PM

Raptors stay within 5, 2:40 left in third
And I would have totally lost a round of “who he play for” on Santi Aldama – 9:08 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050

Second-worst first half of the season for the Raptors. The 39 points is two more than vs. Washington way back in the opener. – 8:45 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Grizzlies up 50-39 vs Raptors at halftime.
Grizzlies held the Raptors to 35% FG.
Grizzlies have 17 2nd chance pts, Scored 14 pts off turnovers and knocked down 7 threes.
Desmond Bane: 16pts, 6 reb
Jaren Jackson Jr.: 12pts – 8:40 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
How inept was the Raptors’ offence that half? They held the Grizzlies to 37.5% from the floor, 30.4% from 3, 8 free throw attempts and are losing by 11. – 8:40 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Raptors shot 35% from the field and 21% from 3 in the 1st half. They have twice as many turnovers (8) as assists (4) and went nearly 5 minutes without scoring in the 2nd Q. They’ve given up 9 offensive rebounds and 17 2nd-chance points. That they’re within 11 is a minor miracle. – 8:35 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Not quite sure, but Raptors still sorta, kinda in this
Down 50-39 at the half
Yeah, 39 in a half, it’s an issue – 8:34 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Dwane Casey said he got to know Chauncey Billups through Kyle Lowry while in Toronto. “It’s great to see. Chauncey has been a great leader throughout his playing career … he’s just had ‘it.’ That natural leadership ability. It’s good to see him get the opportunity.” – 8:34 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Without Anunoby/Trent/Birch the Raptors are missing 44.7 points per game, or roughly 40% of their offence… and, man, it’s showing right now. This is not a roster that’s built to withstand injuries to any of their primary offensive weapons, let alone multiple of them at a time. – 8:14 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Raptors will shoot free throws with next Grizzlies foul. There is 9:23 left in second quarter. How many free throws will they shoot this quarter? I’ll set over/under at 3.5. – 8:13 PM

Desmond Bane is proof the Raptors front office is not infallible. Should have been an easy pick (not hindsight, looked like a sure thing even back then), but they loved Malachi Flynn.
Flynn still might be solid, but Bane was a miss for many teams. – 7:45 PM
