Finch on Anthony Edwards:
“It could be one of his most complete games he’s played since I’ve been with him. Every facet. Made the big plays, he made the little plays, he played all the way through the game. He really imposed himself offensively + defensively, gave us great life.” – 11:46 PM

Finch when asked how aggressive defense impacts Anthony Edwards’ offense:
“It gets him going, it really does. It gets his engine going… He has the ability to start his own engine in a lot of different ways. Could be a block, could be a steal, could be a 3, could be an and-1.” – 11:42 PM

This sort of shell concept defensively, where the Wolves are switching a lot and being intentional about sagging to the boxes and elbows, seems to really be fitting Anthony Edwards.

Jaren Jackson Jr. has never averaged more than 4.4 free-throw attempts. He’s at 5.8 so far this season. With as aggressive as he’s been, I think six free-throw attempts per game should be the minimum. Tough to stop him when he puts the ball on the floor and attacks smaller guys. – 8:52 PM

Jaden McDaniels will be a game time decision, says Chris Finch.
Jordan McLaughlin was out on the floor getting some reps pregame, but Finch says McLaughlin remains out. – 6:28 PM

Chris Finch said Jaden McDaniels (illness) was a game-time decision tonight. As for who takes Towns’ spot in the lineup, Finch didn’t specify one player, said it’ll likely be a game by game thing. – 6:24 PM

– A roster built to withstand a KAT injury?
– This has to mean more Gobert PnR, right?
– Going through the impact of KAT’s absence on each rotation player
– If things get significantly better in KAT’s absence, what then?

Towns & Gobert had their running +/- above 0 for a bit last week, but are a minus-5 (-0.7 per 100 possessions) for the season w/ Towns out the next few weeks.
Offense: Pretty bad.
Defense: Pretty good.

Among lineups that have played 100+ min, the #Rockets starting unit of KPJ, Jalen Green, Eric Gordon, Jabari Smith & Alperen Sengun is currently the worst defensive unit in the NBA, giving up 123.2 points per 100 possessions. In November, they gave up 130.9.
How do you fix this? – 12:21 PM

CJ McCollum said he will not play tonight. Said he hasn’t been able to run in 8-9 days. Going thru some run w teammates/coaches now.
Larry Nance said he will go. Said tweaked shoulder vs. GSW and then re-injured it against Memphis. Said rest was well needed. – 12:17 PM

A couple of fun Grizzlies items I wanted to share today:
– Tonight will be David Roddy’s first NBA game with all four of his brothers there to watch.
– Some notes on JJJ, a large donation he made for Giving Tuesday, and who taught him to be generous. dailymemphian.com/section/sports…11:45 AM

NBA 2K23 predicts that a healthy Memphis Grizzlies team will beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA Finals.
I caught up with Ronnie 2K to discuss the Grizzlies, Ja Morant being unstoppable on 2K23 and Desmond Bane becoming a star in the ratings.

Hali is going to be great in Sacramento tonight and will get huge cheers, Fox will be excellent too and get louder cheers.
I’m *really* interested to see the energy around Buddy in his return. Statistically a top-15 Sacramento King all-time. 1st in 3PM, 12th in min, 8th in pts. – 9:23 AM

COLUMN: There’s been so much discussion about how Memphis football (and really the whole Memphis athletic department) feels stuck between a rock and a hard place. But what about how it can wiggle free of this bind? I’ve got some thoughts.
