Memphis aren't playing well again but they are also getting ass **** by the officiating. Up 1 at the half against another depleted team.

Last night I watched the end of the Philly NO's match & with NO's down 2, 1 possession 14 secs left Philly ball, NO's was awarded the ball at the 10 sec mark for a supposed 8 sec violation for an opportunity to tie or win the game, lol... Didn't have to watch that game to know why it was a close match without Zion.

Memphis get the win but still not valuing possession.

These guys lost GNG. That’s where you need good veterans to kick Ja’s and JJJ’s ascsees.

Clarke’s degradation is a mystery. What to blame? The reckless change of shooting mechanic? The injury recovery? It is so disappointing.

In contrast, Melton’s 3pt shooting mechanic is a piece of art. Love it!

JJJ is pathetic at this point time.

Besides the mechanics of Clarke's shot being changed I think his issues are the same as Anderson's.

Anderson struggled when Winslow returned from injury & again when 3J returned.. Defined roles, defined minutes, not being shuffled etc. IMO all playing a factor.. especially with a player who was already having issues trying to iron out his new mechanics.

Put yourself in Clarke's position, your shot needs tweaking & you might potentially lose playing time, with 3J at the 4 & Anderson making his case for your spot. He might compensate by doing too much..

I know the competition wasn't ideal but Ja having Jonas rolling & 3J popping looked potentially deadly. 3J was open, every time.

38pts between the 2 with 3J going 3-10 from 3 working his way back. When he gets back to shooting the 3 ball at his 40% clip that duo with Morant running point will be hard to contain.. teams won't be able to effectively crowd the paint anymore.

Anderson's 3pt shooting taking a hit is part reason for the teams recent struggles among their ability to value possession (17 TO;s)

Didn't help that the refs gave Raptors some extra possessions to keep it close. Jenkins will have to be on them & challenge their BS because make no mistake with Pelicans only a game & a half out, they want Zion, Curry, Derozn, Lilliard's names in the playoff mix.

I'm hoping we end up in a situation where we can rest guys for at least one of the upcoming games. Our guys are physically and mentally exhausted and it shows in the sloppy play.
