Jaren Jackson 27 Points Full Highlights (11/16/2018)

It’s like the Grizzlies never tanked at all. They were so bad at the end of last year. So unbelievably bad. They lost by 60 to the Hornets and then laughed about it. It all seems like a fever dream to me now, because the current Grizzlies bear no resemblance to that G-League assemblage of…

Marc Gasol 29 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (11/14/2018)

The giant, bearded man walked triumphantly through the grand stone arch that was the gate to the realm. “I am here as dictated by the prophecy,” he proclaimed. The keeper of the gate was a small, withered-looking old man. “Welcome,” he said softly in a voice made ragged by age. The bearded man looked around….

Jaren Jackson 20 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/7/2018)

Man, that Summer League game where Jaren Jackson hit nothing but a ton of threes is looking like the world’s biggest statistical aberration right now. He was 8 of 13 (thirteen threes holy balls) from deep that game. After tonight’s game, he’s 5 of 24 in the regular season over 10 games. It felt unsustainable…

Jaren Jackson 15 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (11/5/2018)

Jaren Jackson has been pretty good this year, right? He’s on the Grizzlies, so no news of his exploits ever escapes a 50-mile radius around the arena, but from what little I’ve seen of him, he’s looked decent. Except for that three-ball. The scouts were right about that one; it doesn’t look very workable on…

Dillon Brooks 17 Points Full Highlights (11/4/2018)

Dillon Brooks doesn’t seem to be reacting well towards having his minutes and opportunities reduced this year. He was a surprise for the Grizzlies last year, and ended up playing a ton as they entered ultra-tank mode. He was one of their best players, somehow, during the final stretch of unwatchable basketball Memphis was plopping…

Shelvin Mack 21 Points Full Highlights (11/4/2018)

If someone (it would have to be me, wouldn’t it) were to compile a list of least-relevant-but-not-terrible NBA players, Shelvin “The Macksturbator” Mack would have to be way up at the top. He’s for sure a competent backup PG, not a starter at all, but a guy who you feel kinda comfortable having on the…

MarShon Brooks 18 Points Full Highlights (10/27/2018)

More than anyone else in the league, MarShon Brooks wished the offseason was only a couple days long so he could keep riding the hot streak he was on to end last year. He only played 7 games, so he was fresh despite averaging 20 during that time. He was the hottest player in the…

Jaren Jackson 24 Points Full Highlights (10/19/2018)

All the predraft sites (RIP DraftExpress) said the same thing about Jaren Jackson: he good, but man that shot form is wonked out to heck and back. They didn’t use quite those words, of course, but that was the gist of it. And he bore that out in his first Summer League game: tons of…

Garrett Temple 30 Points Full Highlights (10/19/2018)

Sorry, losers. There’s all sorts of rookies and such that had excellent performances tonight, but right now what you get is highlights of Garrett Temple scoring 30. Why? Because screw you, that’s why. I do what I want. And what I want is to showcase one of the most underrated role-players in the league. The…
