a nice applause for former Tiger Precious Achiuwa in pregame intros — really cool for him to get that warm welcome after the limited fans during his rookie season – 8:06 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins on Desmond Bane’s more featured role as defenses gear towards Ja: Des has been “big time” and he plays within the offense. They called plays for him to be a playmaker, and he runs the floor really well. He’s put in a lot of work to grow as a 3-level scorer – 6:26 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
I asked Taylor Jenkins about the Raptors’ sizable lineups and the challenges and opportunities it poses. He said creates 50/50 opportunities in offensive rebounds and in transition. They want to create mismatches with pacing, rather than matchup – 6:25 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins expects Dillon Brooks to be fully back once he makes his return – 6:23 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins says the Raptors defensive pressure puts an emphasis on ball security — whether they’re going man or zone. They want to emphasize spacing in that regard – 6:22 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Taylor Jenkins first saw the Ja Morant Nike commercial in a college basketball game, and said it was a special moment for everyone – 6:21 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Dillon Brooks is a game-time decision for tonight’s game, per Jenkins – 6:21 PM

“It’s not going to be a smooth rise for them,” Precious Achiuwa said. “But I think Penny always does a great job of figuring out talent and how to make it work. The good news is that they play defense and they play hard. You can never go wrong with that.” dailymemphian.com/section/sports…3:08 PM
