Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
The Grizzlies are getting ready for a tough four-game road trip. We have seen them overcome all type of absences, and they’ll have to do it again. I think Desmond Bane and his shooting/cutting ability is a huge loss. Melton played better last game and Konchar has been good. – 6:16 PM

Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Bane’s offense and Jackson’s defense helps push Grizzlies out to 58-45 lead at half. Pretty rough half for Vucevic. – 4:44 PM

Desmond Bane with a smooth 16 points so far. Not forcing anything. Just running to open spots and his teammates are finding him for easy buckets. – 4:41 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
DESMOND BANE FOR 3! He’s up to 19 points in the half – 4:40 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Clay Bailey @claybailey9
Chicago coach Billy Donovan got up to call time out as soon as Desmond Bane walked into that 3-pointer from the top of the key. Before the shot dropped through the net. – 4:19 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Bane’s shooting numbers have been so weird at home.
But when he’s THAT open, you can count it. – 4:19 PM

The Grizzlies injecting some offense into the lineup by bringing in Trip and Bane – 4:11 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Might be the first time I’ve seen this lineup. Brandon Clarke at the 5. Ja Morant and Tyus Jones in the backcourt. John Konchar and Kyle Anderson the forwards. – 4:04 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Jaren Jackson Jr. snuffing out a two-on-one Bulls break. The return of Adams-to-Bane halfcourt connections.
Some good stuff happening for the Grizzlies, but they haven’t really found a rhythm. – 3:56 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Adams-to-Bane combo is incredible. Those guys know where the other is at all times. – 3:54 PM
Clay Bailey @claybailey9
Here are your starters for Grizz vs. Bulls. Chicago: DeRozan, Alfonzo McKinnie, Vucevic, Dosunmu, Coby White; Grizz start: Bane, Ja, Adams, JJJ and Ziaire. – 3:26 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Steven Adams is back in the starting lineup vs. the Bulls
G – Morant
G – Bane
F – Williams
F – Jackson
C – Adams
Adams vs. Nucevic should be fun.
JJJ should also have another size mismatch
Starters for Bulls
G – White
G – Dosunmu
F – DeRozan
F – McKinnie
C – Vucevic – 3:08 PM

More on this storyline

Andrew Greif: Luke Kennard has been updated to questionable for tomorrow vs. Denver, the team says. He hasn’t played since Dec. 31. He shot 48% from 3 in Dec. and Clippers need his shooting on this 8-game road trip. -via Twitter @AndrewGreif / January 18, 2022
Ryan Blackburn: Via Nuggets injury report, JaMychal Green is still OUT due to health and safety protocols. Austin Rivers is off the injury report and should be available tomorrow. So is Markus Howard, who was recalled from his G League assignment. Gonna be a fun roster for tomorrow IMO. -via Twitter @NBABlackburn / January 18, 2022
