Straight Outta Vancouver Nov 25, 2015
The Memphis Grizzlies are running very low on big men and will experiment with different small-ball lineups until Zach Randolph (knee) and Brandan Wright (knee) are able to return. Randolph is likely only to miss a couple of more games while Wright has no definite timeline for his return. With those two players out the Grizzlies have utilized a lot more of Jeff Green and Matt Barnes, Green starting at PF and Barnes at SF last night.

Mavericks outlast Pelicans in the fourth quarter to pick up third win of the season. The Mavericks aren't totally dead! Sure, they had to claw out a win against the corpse of the New Orleans Pelicans, but in the Mavs current state, every win is a vital. No take-backsies. Here's some things from tonight: DWIGHT POWELL IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR Can't believe the Mavs only had to give away a first rounder, Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder and Jameer Nelson for Dwight Powell The Mavericks slogged their way through pretty much most of the minutes Powell wasn't on the floor. When he was? They were...

Brandan Wright is still working into the flow with the Memphis Grizzlies, but when in doubt you just need to run a pick and roll with him. If the play isn't finished with a lob he can still use his athleticism to, oh I don't know, lay in a finger roll from 12 feet up in the air. There's a sly little pass from Beno in here too.
