COVID didn’t cost Memphis the Tennessee game. A failure of leadership did. Column: dailymemphian.com/section/sports…5:58 PM

Final point: If I were buying that franchise down the road I would try to link up with the Diamond Project on a major real estate deal and get the venues, parking and associated business in one giant entertainment district that would make downtown Portland obsolete. – 4:57 PM

During pregame, Chauncey Billups praised how impressive Desmond Bane has been for the Grizzlies. He called him a confident knockdown shooter.
Billups also added, “I really don’t think Taylor [Jenkins] gets enough credit for how he has these guys playing for him.” – 4:51 PM

The Thunder is returning to Memphis, where it last lost by a record 73 points.
We caught up with former Thunder TV analyst Grant Long, whose 1991-92 Miami Heat previously held the record for worst loss.
“That was our glowing moment if you will.”

Mark Daigneault said he’d be surprised if Wiggins starts tomorrow night at Memphis. He said they could look at starting another guard, or even go big. Nothing concrete yet. – 1:25 PM

Mark Daigneault said the awareness already exists about the last game vs Memphis so there is no need to bring it up, “letting that breath is the best course” – 1:23 PM
