that didnt look good.. in fact that was aweful.. where was the uptempo stuff they have been preaching? i mean they ran a little with lowry in the game but other than that it was kinda slow.. i wasnt impressed at all with any aspect of that game.

I didnt get to watch it.I just read the live game flash script.I read there were a few alley oops in the game.Miller choked.Missed two free throws.That hurt.Juan carlos picked it up in the second half.Its the first game.If they look like this the entire preseason.Then im gonna be worried.

good point, i need to have some patience, but still they pretty much gave the game away, kind of frustrating.

and yes there were quite a few alley oops, conley threw a nice one to stro

Atleast we know Navarro can score, but it was against a Spanish team, so Navarro was probably familiar with the other team. But still it's pretty sad how in first game of the preseason our leading scorer is the guy who has his first game with the Grizz.

I didn't watch the match, so the following words are just my guess.
I watched Unicaja playing last weekend in spanish league. They lost their game 69-64 (40 minutes) mainly because they lacked a lot in inside scoring, due to the rival defense. It seems the Grizzlies were yesterday outplayed inside the paint, I've seen the stats and all Unicaja inside players made 13 or more points each. Really bad defense from the Grizzlies, I suppose. But we all know that this will be the achilles' heel of the team this year. Hope Darko gives more than yesterday.

On the uptempo style, well, they have had only a few practising sessions with the whole roster, so it is difficult to make it run in the first game. Unicaja is not a good rival for this style, their points use to play slow style and the team have a really good defensive balance.

On the bright side, I'm really impressed with Navarro's performance and happy with Pau, who seems to be back with a lot of energy.

Let's see what happens tomorrow in Madrid. I'm sad cos I will miss the match, so I will wait to read your feelings about it.

they looked much better in the second game thank god.. but the competition was obviously not great so maybe thats why. and one more thing, rudy gay still has no idea how to find the open man , his decision making is poor.

Rudy will pick that up as he grows as a player. It's something that is learnt over time, he will get better at it as he gets older.

I don't know if he is getting it or not but yesterday he made a fantastic match... 22/9 and 5 blocks...
Also Navarro made a great match in his first home appearance: 22p and above 50% both in the field (8/15) and in the 3 (5/9).

I think things are going well for the team, but I'm a bit worried about Conley Jr, he is not getting so much playing time and now is the moment to test his skills.

Wow, one rebound off a double/double for Rudy. Definitly impressing me so far. A little disapointed that Kinsey didn't play hopefully he plays in the next game.

He has to compete with Navarro, Miller, and Jacobsen. And it seems that Iavarony is using Lowry in the 2 spot sometimes (I don't know why). That's what the Commercial Appeal says...

It seems he is going to have a hard season this year...
