Great 4th by Conley, 10 points (of 11) and 4 assists. The guy takes the team on his back when he has the chance. And good thing that Kinsey has played and performed well.

I want to ask you people, cause you have seen him playing. How is Navarro doing this first matches in Memphis?

¿Will he fit in the team? I think it's possible to play with Conley/Damon, Navarro and Miller, since coach Iavaroni seems to prefer Rudy Gay as a 4. ¿What do you think?.

Navarro seems to be doing very well. In only his first 4 games for the Grizzlies he's averaging 15.5 points. I know it's only preseason and I doubt he's trying his hardest, but imagine what he will look like in the actual season, I smell a 15-18 ppg this season.

Also I hope Gasol's injury isn't too bad, hopefully he should be back before the season starts. If not, then maybe only a few games in, let's just hope we don't have a repeat of last season.

Glad to hear. I was sure he would do well, Navarro is probably the second best Spanish player (more or less like Calderon), and he can help the team very well. I can't imagine Navarro scoring less than 12-14 points in a game if he has enugh game time.

I am sure it will be a good year for Grizzlies if the team don't have much injuries.

There's nothing about Gasol's injury on Grizzlies' homepage, so I doubt it's serious. And hopefully he's fine for opening night.

Yeah, 5-5 from beyond the arc for Rudy. He seems to have added some range, I just hope he doesn't falls in love with the three too much.

Kyle Lowry put a triple-double (21p,11r,12a) and the winning basket in a two-OT game against the Rockets. Wow!

I'm worried about Darko's performance, he seems to be giving almost nothing to the team. Have you seen him play? What's your feeling?

Havn't seen any of the games, only highlights and boxscores (that's the problem with living in England). But, I agree he (Darko) doesn't seem to be contributing as much as we'd hoped, let's hope it doesn't continue for too long.

Lowry had a damn impressive game, out scored, out rebounded and out assisted everyone else who even played. Then gets the game winning basket, wow. But we have to remember these games mean nothing and if he can't reproduce these feats in the regular season than this game meant nothing.

Also, Swift is impressing me so far. I guess he is working hard in training, seems like he really wants it this season, which is good. I'm going to have to start liking him if he continues this during the regular season.

Yeah, that's my problem also, living so far away.

On Lowry, that's true, it's just one game, but he was very consistent during last season (the few games he played, I mean) and it seems that he is getting a lot better day by day. I didn't expected that improvement pace from him.

Stro is starting to give something much better, but I'm still not convinced he will be capable of doing all along the season, he has been so disappointing the past years... So just waiting what happens in real competition, nothing else.

I agree, Lowry did show signs of being good last season, but due to his injury he wasn't able to fully show what he is capable of. Maybe this is the season we get to see all that talent on full display.

Swift may not be able to play like this when the season roles around and the intensity rises much higher, which is a big worry. He has shown signs this preseason that he does care and that he is willing to try and work hard, but it's only preseason.
