We are indeed resting most of our guys. Guess Winslow will get a good bit of run this game?

Frustrated to watch Louis King show out against us. He and Myles Powell were my call up specials. Not sure what happened to Powell, but King is a step ahead of our bench guys. It is still the B team, but you can see the athletic toolset. He should be a rotation player in the league and probably will be at some point.

In other news, besides those FTs, Winslow was great tonight - passing, hitting 3s, and getting key rebounds. We don't want him at the line in crunchtime though.

I am glad that Winslow has granted our FO a chance to trade him.

Glad Winslow looked good since he may not play again this season (hopefully he won't at least). We won but it really didn't matter much. Tomorrow's game is for all the marbles and then straight into the play-in tournament.

The GS game thread is not up so I'll post here.

Memphis have one clear advantage vs GS, Jonas size & strength in the paint, Now what is not obvious, is how bias refs will call the game to impact that advantage. They will let Green & the smaller/weaker players defend by being able to foul him, they will call those fouls, grabbing arm, clean strips.

Over the last 2 seasons, it's been the difference between Jonas dominating & Memphis winning, losing. So Jenkins has to be careful with how they utilize Jonas who can get burned by Curry's 3pt shooting if the refs help them defend the paint advantage.

I'd have him rolling in that case more than posting up, though they'll probably attempt to hit him with some cheap offensive calls. Foul him out early, if he's playing well. Hopefully, 3J the other big men come to play in this one to give Memphis options.

I guess what I'm saying is to factor in the officiating into what ever game plan you have. They will attempt to take away the paint from Jonas/Memphis by allowing GS to play a more physical defense, while not allowing Memphis to do the same. If the other games were telling, Jonas will get some soft calls on him defensively also to aid the foul trouble.
