"Grizzlies have scored 24.5% of their points from FT line, league average is 18.3%. MEM averaged 17.6% of their points there in reg season"

Refs need to chill out. A quarter of their points coming from the line a game is fu**ing absurd.

Posting a number that was posted on Hoopshype and saying "I hope refs actually let the teams slug it out" isn't complaining. It's me sincerely hoping they let both teams play physical without being quick on the whistle and posting a fact.

Vinny needs to ride Blake, even if hes in foul trouble. No way he shouldn't be playing 40 minutes tonight

MrfadeawayJB
04-30-2013, 05:43 PM
The grizz are inside out every possession, of course they go to the line. In the reg season refs hardly called foul calls compared to other teams. Also the % of Pts from the line is deceiving because
A: grizz don't score that many points
B: when the grizz do go to the line they hit. Very good ft shooters.

Clips are averaging over 20% from FT themselves.

Blake is averaging like 32 minutes this offseason, same as he did during the season. Unacceptable to run a super freak athlete, 24 year old as if he's a 36 year old Duncan. I understand our depth is amazing but Blake should be a 35-37 minute a game player minimum.

Last year the refs let these teams play for the most part and we won. Not sure what you call slugging it out but in Memphis we were in the same foul situation as you guys were game 1. Not to mention in that same game 1 guess who fouled out? Blake Griffin, not Zbo. Both teams had a ton of fouls racked up on their main guys.

Starting to doubt my previous analysis. Memphis just looks like the all around better team who has stepped up. I mean we are trading buckets with a subpar offensive team and down at home late 1st... where as they were stepping on our throats by now in games 3 and 4. Score was close but you could tell they were playing their game and had some control. It feels like we are in Memphis still.

Yes. Both are the better alternative. At least Blake/DJ have the strength to play 1 on 1. How many 3 second violations are we gonna get because we cant contain the interior? How many open outlet jumpers are we gonna surrender? Blake should never rest more than 4 minutes at a time

Hollins>DJ impact wise in these playoffs IMO. DJ is a massive liability on both ends. He can't catch the ball on cuts, can't defend worth a ****, can't score easy buckets, can't hit free throws. Hollins is at least good for taking charges, committing real hard fouls, hitting free throws and he's great at cutting to the rim and the tip ins.

I agree Blake rests WAY too much but tonight he's supposedly injured again. It's ridiculous how many "minor" injuries Blake racks up. Definitely "injury prone".

LOL at being able to hit free throws, hes taken 2 all series. Yea thats a profound difference hes making.

DJ is more talented but he also has the heart and drive of a mouse. At least Hollins is more scrappy and plays harder, which is why he's eating DJ's minutes more and more as the playoffs go on. DJ's done NOTHING outside of rebound decently at times. He's averaging like 3 and 6 in these playoffs, pretty pathetic for an 11 mill a year player. Not to mention we are comparing him to a vet minimum player.

DJ is more talented but he also has the heart and drive of a mouse. At least Hollins is more scrappy and plays harder, which is why he's eating DJ's minutes more and more as the playoffs go on.
You mean as we've been losing... cool? Maybe its his 1 of 2 free throw shooting that you mentioned lol


DJ's done NOTHING outside of rebound decently at times.
False, hes a superior defender and the team has more faith in playing 1 on 1 with him.

One guy has looked like a true defensive anchor for long stretches (DJ 2010-2011 when Kaman went down) and one has always been known as a subpar defender. Not comparable. DJ's responsibility is MUCH greater therefor his letdown is more severe. I think Hollins provides a bit more in these playoffs just because he plays a lot harder than DJ and has no issue getting more physical with Memphis bigs (even picking up stupid fouls).

He supposedly had a strained back from like game 2 on. Before season ended had a sprained knee or something. I think he's just mentally weaker than I originally thought. He has no ability whatsoever to play through difficult situations (injuries, fatigue etc). In these situations his production and effort PLUMMETS bad. Truly great players push through these barriers, Blake doesn't which is disappointing.

I remember his rookie year he did... but now his toughness, motor and heart all have declined, which is sad because that's a lot of what made him special in my eyes.

Now that CP3's picked up the aggression the last two games after our "talk" it's definitely put a big bullseye on Blake's back. It's truly devastating as a fan to see a guy you paid 95 million and who's supposed to be a franchise player.. shrivel up for the 2nd year in a row in the playoffs. I think I just need to accept that it's okay to be an all star and not a superstar. Blake while a hard worker will probably never be the top 5 player in the NBA I thought he would be. He just lacks a lot of the fire and toughness these young stars have.

His rookie year that motor and fire is what I said WOULD make him great and now it's become a weakness of his. I remember how damn hard he used to fight on the boards.

It's weird. You should be getting way more than 18 and 8 at this point in your career. Alot of that may be how deep the Clippers are, but he's barely developed any semblance of a game that doesn't revolve dunking on people.

DPOY and comparable stats, definitely debateable

18.5 ppg, 8 rpg, 3.7 apg (32 minutes per game) vs 14.5, 8 rpg and 4 apg (35 mpg). Griffin has the edge in steals, Marc in blocks. PER 36 the statistically gap is bigger. Griffin has a huge PER edge of 22+ to 19, identical WS/48. DPOY is nothing but a popularity contest and multiple big name players complained about him winning (which I've never seen). Marc Gasol isn't even the best defensive center in the game, let alone the best defender on his own team.

Chronz, just trying to give you an excuse is all
How can I be messing with Blake when he's on the court and I'm on my couch? BTW I am the toughest lady you'd ever meet and all woman. :).

Eww cooties.

Not a flawed analysis. He's added post moves but you can't tell me he has the impact on the game a superstar has. He never takes over. He reached 30 just three times this year. 30, 31 and 30.

He has the talent to get to a Barkley like level but doesn't seem to care that much,

His rookie year he put up 22 and 12 and it rivaled rookie years of Shaq and Duncan. I thought for sure he was headed for 26-27 PPG and 13-14 RPG. Not 18 and 8.

Toasted. Memphis deserves mad props for exorcising their demons and proving they are the better team. Their composure to dominate 3 straight games like this after being down 2-0 is incredible. If they go on to win 4 straight (likely) will be one of most amazing comeback series wins ever and I can honestly see them going to the WCF.

Chronz, you got money on these games?
Yes along with the Nuggs series, the Nets series, and the Pacers. This might be my worst year yet

Most of that stopped when Gay was traded. They have has ZERO trouble scoring against us the last 3.

Just give it to Marc. He's abusing anything they put out there.

Griffin likely out the rest of the playoffs. Not announced yet but diagnosed as a "Severe high ankle sprain" and it's clear he can't play through it. Considering without a healthy Griffin we have no chance to do much damage anyways, I'm sure he's out next game which we will lose anyways.
