Seems like quicker up front is better versus Wizards, but Grizzlies haven’t paired Slow/JJJ at all. – 7:53 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
The Wizards’ offense has been superb, making 20 out of 30 shots on purposeful shot creation. They have 14 assists on their 20 baskets. … But there has been one issue: too many turnovers. Their six giveaways have led to 11 Memphis points. … Washington leads 48-39. – 7:52 PM

The Wizards have hit 12 of their first 15 shots and lead the Grizzlies by 12. Everything is falling so far. – 7:26 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Bradley Beal is 34/34 from the FT line this season. – 7:24 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Daniel Gafford came off very frustrated with his recent play during his press conference yesterday. He’s got 8 pts (4-4 FG) in 5 min so far tonight, taking that frustration out on the rim. – 7:22 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Hot start for Wizards (7-9 FG) leading Memphis 17-12. – 7:20 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Grizzlies allow the 2nd-highest 3PT% in the NBA this season (38.6%) and the 5th-most makes (13.8/g). The Wizards have made their first three from long range tonight. – 7:19 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
The Wizards’ offense has started far better tonight. It’s not just the shot-making that’s improved. It’s the process that led to the successful shots: collapsing the defense and exploiting the weaknesses to create open shots. Washington leads Memphis 17-12. – 7:19 PM

Memphis rookie Santi Aldama who went to Loyola (MD) spending a long-time with friends in the Capital One Arena stands pre-game and I’m trying to figure out if protocols for players are that lax or nobody cares. – 6:18 PM

Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Couple of things I’m interested in in the Grizz-Wiz game tonight:
With Wiz playing small on the perimeter, do Grizz look to “hide” Morant on KCP, the ostensible SF but lesser scoring threat?
With Wiz not playing a big center, is Slow Mo/JJJ the closing frontcourt? – 6:08 PM

What I’m watching: WAS/MEM
The Wizards have struggled to shoot the three ball this season sitting at 26th in the NBA in 3P% (31.9). Tonight, they face the 29th ranked team in Opp. 3P% (38.6).
The looks should* be there, can WAS take advantage? – 3:27 PM

Coach Malone today said the offense – specifically shot making – is giving the Nuggets the most trouble.
“I think we were 2/15 on wide open threes against Memphis the other night. I don’t have a calculator, but that’s not a good percentage.” – 2:34 PM
