What’s up everyone, @bcabraham tapping in for some #HustleAfterDark as the Memphis Hustle are set to face off against the College Park Skyhawks at 11 PM CT – 11:53 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Post-game Memphis style wings on the plane absolutely hitting tonight – 10:18 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Kyle Anderson said they usually have off shooting nights coming back from West Coast, but not an excuse.
He also said they want to pride themselves on defense, in midst of that 3rd quarter surge, and it’s hard to generate transition offense when you take it out the net – 9:16 PM
Trendon Watford @trendonw
LOUISIANA MEEE ✈️ – 9:16 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks isn’t worried about tech count. He keeps dialogue with refs, and they know he’s passionate, and refs have conversations with him. Something you get with years of experience – 9:13 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks said they missed shots they were making in win streak. Some days it’ll waver, but the defense always has to be there to have a shot – 9:11 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks said Portland had the advantage with 50/50 balls for extra possessions, and Norm Powell hit timely shots – 9:10 PM

Postgame with Taylor Jenkins was pretty quick, but Spark Notes version:
They thought they got great looks, shots didn’t fall. Dame and Powell played really well. Portland did a good job taking away looks, but Jenkins acknowledged need to set guys up in position better – 8:51 PM

The Grizzlies couldn’t get past Portland’s attack, as they fall to the Blazers, 105-100. @PAKA_FLOCKA with the Quick Recap: https://t.co/XxrIzmRTkK pic.twitter.com/zki1o6Msx78:48 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Now the 3rd time Brooks has fouled Lillard on a 3 today, 2 of them became 4-point plays. This one was totally unnecessary, a shove to the body after he’d already released it. – 8:13 PM

The @Memphis Grizzlies have recorded 11 consecutive games with 10+ steals.

Dillon Brooks is attacking Portland every trip down the floor. He has been super aggressive, and Memphis has needed it. – 7:49 PM

Lillard just came up grimacing and holding his left side after that play – 7:47 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks has been on an absolutely tear this game – 7:47 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
The explanation that we received from Memphis about the sequence late in the 2nd qtr. is that the official(s) “interrupted” Dillon Brooks’ first FT, which he missed. So he was allowed to shoot another FT (after Nurk scored). Never seen that before. – 7:40 PM
Dakota Schmidt @RidicUpside
Hello everyone, I’ll be around here to live tweet the College Park/Memphis Hustle game that will tip off at 12 AM EST and 9 PM PST. See y’all then. – 7:36 PM

Portland putting up a good fight tonight and Grizz 4 of 16 from 3 is not helping the cause. – 7:29 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
The theory — we’re all spitballing at this point — is that since the Blazers were in the penalty that the loose ball foul is two shots rather than one? That’s pure speculation but that’s where we’re at. – 7:26 PM
