Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Slowly thinking about going from Steven Adams is one of the strongest men in the NBA to Steven Adams is the strongest man in the NBA. Even when he doesn’t have initial position he just moves guys out of the way. – 9:03 PM

Offensive rebounds for Memphis tonight: 15
Total rebounds for Brooklyn tonight: 18
In related news, the Grizzlies have a 20-4 edge in second chance points in this game – the main reason Memphis is up by eight midway through the third. – 9:02 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Steven Adams is second in the NBA in offensive rebounds per game with 4.19.
He already has six (!!!) offensive boards in this game. The Grizzlies’ 18 second-chance points are a big reason they lead. – 8:49 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
If the Nets, Bucks, Bulls and Heat end up being the East’s final four, who would you like to face who in the second round?
I think I want Bucks-Heat and Nets-Bulls. Really build up that Bucks-Heat rivalry, and DeMar/LaVine trying to match buckets with the Nets would be awesome. – 8:48 PM
Barbara Barker @meanbarb
Nets’ Kyrie Irving likely to return on Wednesday in Indy. Couldn’t happen soon enough for Nets. Team trailing Grizzlies at half and trying to avoid dropping to third in the East.

Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
What a finish to the half for Desmond Bane. And this is nothing new for the Grizzlies. Bane is a bucket. Averaging 17/4/2 on 41% from 3. Great with and without the ball. Good passer too. Bane and Ja Morant have been one of the NBA’s five best backcourts. Don’t sleep on Memphis. pic.twitter.com/fCeOaJNPPF8:45 PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Patty Mills has been great for the Nets, but they might be better putting him back as a reserve. Let him get tons of second unit shots and put a guy who doesn’t need shots but will defend with Harden. – 8:45 PM

David Hardisty @clutchfans
The NBA’s continuation call can be so inconsistent. Ever since they changed the rules to slow down Harden, it’s just not clear what should be continuation. – 8:44 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
There is a foundation in place for this Memphis team to be good for the long haul:
✅All-Star: Ja Morant
✅Top starters: Bane and Jackson Jr.
✅Depth
✅Expiring contracts
✅1st Rd. Picks: 10 in the next 7 years
✅Future cap flexibility
Only scratching the surface – 8:41 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Grizzlies have six players in health and safety protocols and are still leading Nets by 9 on the road at halftime. Ja Morant (15pts) & Desmond Bane (13pts) are doing what they do. Jarrett Culver has 9 points in his 1st game back out of health and safety protocols.
Grizz up 56-47 – 8:36 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Halftime here in Brooklyn, with Memphis leading 56-47. Desmond Bane & Ja Morant have scored 28 points on a combined 12-21 shooting, plus five assists. James Harden and Kevin Durant also have 28 points, but are 10-for-25 from the field. Grizz have an 18-4 edge in 2nd chance points – 8:35 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Grizzlies lead the Nets 56-47. Ja Morant and Desmond Bane are cooking. James Harden and Kevin Durant are, too. The difference is Memphis has a lead in bench points 22-11 twice as many rebounds. Patty Mills is scoreless, Memphis has 18 second-chance points to BK’s four. – 8:35 PM
Pete Pranica @PetePranica
Welcome back Jarrett Culver!! @Memphis Grizzlies depth is on display tonight. Nets lacking force, cohesion and shot-making. – 8:34 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
This can’t be the ideal start Kevin Durant had hoped for – 8:34 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Following up that Brooklyn win with *that* half was far too predictable.
Houston can do *one thing* consistently on offense (get to the rim) and it just so happens to be what the Sixers struggle with the most. This perimeter defense is so far away from being championship caliber – 8:08 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets trail the Grizzlies 29-24. Kevin Durant and James Harden have accounted for all but two of the Nets’ baskets. Brooklyn has seven turnovers already. Slow start, got into a groove as the quarter went on. – 8:05 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
There’s a lot of game left in this one, obviously. And maybe I shouldn’t be surprised by this anymore.
But it’s still so impressive that the Grizzlies show up and play hard every single game, even with the odds stacked against them.
That was a heck of a first quarter. – 8:04 PM

Jarrett Culver has come back out of protocols making a huge impact. Pretty wild how Taylor Jenkins just keeps plugging in guys who come in and make it looks like the team isn’t missing a beat. This is not common. – 8:03 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant is ON FIRE from 3.
Goodness. – 7:52 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
One of my favorite unwritten NBA rules is players not wearing the signature sneakers of opponents when playing against them. I’ve seen Jaren Jackson Jr. wear KD’s at every game I’ve attended so far. He is not wearing KD’s today. – 7:52 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
After Morant and Bane put the #Nets in an early 12-4 hole, Brooklyn has somewhat steadied the ship. They trail 15-10 after yet another slow start at home. #Grizzlies7:49 PM

I really appreciate the audacity from Jarrett Culver to go for the dunk on KD – 7:49 PM

In Brooklyn for Grizzlies-Nets tonight. Should be a lot of fun. Memphis has been one of the better stories in the league this year, currently sitting fourth in the West behind perhaps the league’s best young backcourt in Ja Morant and Desmond Bane. – 7:41 PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
I asked Jenkins about Killian Tillie. Jenkins says that he is thrilled to have Tillie around as a full NBA roster member. He’s impressed with his versatility as a wing and big, and sees him as a high IQ/positionless player – “…he’s not a 2-3-4, he’s a good basketball player…” – 6:14 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jenkins says that he is “beyond thrilled” for Ja Morant receiving Player of the Week. Jenkins says that Ja was excited but that he is far more motivated by winning than individual accolades. – 6:10 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jenkins says that more so than three or four-year players being the Grizzlies “type”, they ask if the player can fit their schemes/culture. – 6:09 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Coach Jenkins is here. He says that Desmond Bane, after being thrown in to the fire last season, took stock of his rookie season and was relentless in his work ethic. “…he’s never satisfied…the work ethic is top notch…” – 6:06 PM

What a change of sports history this might’ve been: In 1999, Knicks/Rangers owner Charles Dolan and NJ Devils owner John McMullen put in a joint bid to buy the Washington Football Team. If they got the NFL team, then the Nets would have tried to buy the Devils and move to Newark pic.twitter.com/EgVsIO3gQg3:52 PM

Mike Conley in March of 2019 is the last Memphis Grizzlies player to win Player of the Week. Before, Marc Gasol won it in December of 2016. Big-time honor for Ja Morant. – 3:50 PM
Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Potential for eventful days at the United Center next week. #Bulls could host Nets with Kyrie on 1/12 and Warriors with Klay on 1/14.
Golden State is on a back to back, playing in Milwaukee on Thu, so it’s possible Thompson won’t play in one of those if he is back. – 3:46 PM

📅 On this day in 2019, the @Houston Rockets James Harden had 44 points, 10 rebounds, and 15 assists in a win over the Warriors.
It was the last of five straight games in which Harden recorded at least 40p/5a, tied with Allen Iverson for the longest such streak in NBA history. pic.twitter.com/RFZ1Ko3OUn3:01 PM

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
After a hot streak in which he’s made 12 of 15 threes over the last 3 games, Ja Morant is actually shooting right at 40% from three on 4.4 attempts per game. Last year, he shot 30% on 3.5 attempts.
If Ja can shoot even 37% on 4+ attempts for the season, he’ll be unguardable. – 2:48 PM
Tas Melas @TasMelas
The marker for a successful Bulls season is the Eastern Conference Finals. They should expect to win a first round series and winning round two means beating one of Milwaukee, Brooklyn, or Miami (most likely). That’s the bar. – 2:25 PM

Kevin Durant. 26.8 points per game.
Who is second?
Kyrie Irving. 26.6 points per game.
Memphis will play one but not the other tonight. – 1:37 PM
