Re: Grizzlies put away Real Madrid in preseason opener
All five Grizzlies starters looked ready for primetime, both individually and as a unit.
Zach Randolph's increased quickness and lift was evident during his pre-game shooting routine and carried over into the game, where he twice pinned a taller defender under the rim and finished easily over him.
After the game, Randolph was so bouncy and animated it seemed like he was ready to play another game immediately. I told him he looked like he was back to his pre-injury form. He smiled, put his finger to his lips and said, “Shh. It's a secret. It's coming. I'm getting back to the old Z'Bo.”
