Goran Dragic

The Suns, after gaining the lead in the fourth quarter last night, eventually fell to the Grizzlies, 97-91, for the fourth time this season, eliminating them from playoff contention and bringing to a close one of the more remarkable runs in NBA history. Before the season, everyone (and we do mean everyone) thought Phoenix was headed for one of the worst records in the league as they competed for the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes. Instead, they’re everybody’s favorite League Pass team, and who should have made the playoffs in a more perfect world. Read More »

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 »

The Grizzlies have answered the call to improve, recently, going 15-4 since Marc Gasol returned from a sprained MCL.
