I can understand LBJ having off nights because of his age, but AD doesn't really have any excuses being 27 and all. He's need to step up IMO.

THT is trying to give the game away.

I hate the Gasol substitution at the moment. And that rebound that he couldn't get that led to these free throws are why.

Honestly man.. I really want to agree with you. But think of it like this.

The game's on a Sunday at 5:00 PM CST on a Sunday afternoon. I assume they had COVID-19 testing which means they didn't have a shoot around, especially with it being a mid-day game. Which means they probably sat around and watched football all morning, like the rest of us.

Add to that: No crowd. Zero energy in the building. The only persons voice I've heard all game is Harrell.

Like, this has to be super weird. The fact that they're even leading in the fourth quarter is completely crazy to me.

Well, LeBron woke up in the fourth quarter. It's why we won.

LeClutch and good fourth quarter D. We're definitely coasting through the 1st 3 quarters for the time being.

Good win, but this game would be different if Ja Morant and Jarren Jackson Jr was playing.

I still think it is more of a running hook.

But it's beautiful anyways.

We woulda been smoked. :rofl:

HUGE shout out to Montrezl Harrell. The first 3 quarters the entire team was sleep walking. He was the only one that wasn't.

Good win. Obviously the Grizzlies have some big injuries but the team put them down when we (Lebron) shifted gears in the 4th and that's what I wanted to see.

We're going to be really good this season if we stay healthy. I'm not worried about us strolling through the first 3 quarters. It's a long season.

40 bench points really helped.
Kept us in the game long enough for LBJ to take over in the 4th.
Lots and lots of weapons on this team which is great to see.

They're just figuring out ways to win.
The team and the play will evolve, specially defensively where I have the most concern, but I think even that will be in good shape come playoff time.

Only glanced at the memphis game, but if AD was off then this wouldn't be the first time. Against Portland I think it was, AD looked disinterested. Can't make excuses for him. They're all going through the same thing, but some guys bring it every night.

Injuries and covid actually makes the guard rotation easier for Vogel. I think Matthews should get more consistent minutes and shots up even when everyone is healthy

Trez was acquired for games like these. He was simply the reason the Clippers won a lot of those flat energy road games against awful opposition.

Westly Matthews is shooting 45% from 3. He probably will not keep up that percentage but anything over 38% is gravey.
