Given fact @Memphis Grizzlies sat out 9 players, including all starters, in tonight’s preseason win at Bucks, I came away most impressed with competitiveness of rookies Lofton and Kennedy in extended minutes against vets Ibaka and Jevon Carter. – 10:50 PM
Pete Pranica @PetePranica
107-102 @Memphis Grizzlies over Milwaukee, courtesy of a big fourth quarter (41-26) with 62% FG shooting. LaRavia found a rhythm as did David Roddy (team-high 18 PTs). Grizz overcame rebounding deficit with 13 steals and 50 paint points. – 10:34 PM

Before the game, I asked Mike Budenholzer about the bench conduct rules being a point of emphasis, especially with Thanasis Antetokounmpo’s high-energy support.
Giannis Antetokounmpo ended up being the first offender. – 9:43 PM

MarJon Beauchamp’s first (preseason) NBA field goal is a big one-handed slam as he secured the loose ball and got a run out. Whole bench enjoyed that one.
Grizzlies took a timeout and the Bucks lead, 65-55, with 5:13 left in the third quarter. – 9:35 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Bucks lead 65-55 thanks to an Ibaka three, Carter #midrang jumper and a breakaway dunk from Beauchamp. – 9:34 PM

I like what I’m seeing from Aldama and Ziaire, but rebounding a major issue: MIL with a 14-0 advantage in second chance points and Bucks lead 48-45 at halftime. – 9:05 PM

Halftime:
Bucks 48 Grizzlies 45
Kenneth Lofton Jr. and Ziaire Williams lead the Grizzlies with 10 points. Santi Aldama looks much more comfortable than last season. – 9:04 PM

John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann
Was watching Portis & Lopez play together for a little bit tonight & was curious…
They’ve played 605 total minutes together in the 2 years MIL has had BP.
But only 3 of those 605 minutes have come with Holiday, Middleton & Antetokounmpo. – 8:58 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Lofton has now cooked both Ibaka and Lopez on post moves. – 8:57 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Serge Ibaka has really been getting after it, fighting for rebounds on the offensive glass. Not just going through the motions in the first preseason game. – 8:54 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Ziaire Williams already looks more actively involved in the Grizzlies offense than any point last season, as he said he would be. Will be interesting to see if he still gets those actions ran for him when the starters play, because he looks promising. – 8:48 PM

Good competitive spirit and response for @Memphis Grizzlies after falling behind 8-0. Lead 18-16 after a first quarter that looked like the first pre-season game. Rebounding an issue: Bucks +10 on the glass and 7 OReb. – 8:37 PM

MarJon Beauchamp getting his first action here in the first quarter. Missed a corner 3 and then cut from the corner on the next opportunity, which led to a turnover for Jrue Holiday.
He’ll get more comfortable as time moves forward. Wesley Matthews was quick to chat him up. – 8:26 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks first round pick MarJon Beauchamp checks in for the first time and he receives a nice applause from the home crowd.

I think this halts those moving Jaren Jackson Jr. to the 5 talks and rightfully so. Steven Adams has been a vital piece to the Memphis Grizzlies’ rise in the western conference.

Steven Adams inks two-year, $25.2 million extension with Grizzlies nba.nbcsports.com/2022/10/01/ste…5:21 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
So Steven Adams gets $43.1 million over three years (or $25.2 million over two if we’re just counting the extension?)
Kyle Anderson got $18 million over two years from Minnesota.
I think I’d rather have SlowMo at that number than Adams at his? Interesting call by Memphis. – 5:18 PM

Memphis 10, Temple 3 with 11:27 to go. Ryan Silverfield’s decision to go for it on 4th down in the 3Q instead of kicking a short FG looms large. – 2:40 PM
Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
When the Memphis player crosses the line like that, it is called a touchdown. – 2:24 PM
