Marc Gasol returning to the court earlier this year is the reason Memphis is even in a playoff battle with Phoenix for the final playoff spot in the West. But his frontcourt mate, Zach Randolph, did his best to hold it down in Gasol’s absence. Now that both are on the court, opposing defenses have no idea where the next crafty pass is coming from the pair of interior big men that hit the tiniest crevice of an opening for an assist. Check out Z-Bo’s own dandy dime against the Lakers Sunday night. Read More »

Still, at least Young had a 360-degree reverse layup on Marc Gasol, which added some swag during a largely disappointing season. Read More »

But, holy hell, he’s leading the league in rebounding at 13.8 per game, and he was 5-of-6 from the field yesterday, including a filthy offensive rebound over Jordan Hill, which he then smashed on back on Hill’s face while drawing the foul.
