Great post as usual. Love your spots with Vernon.
This was a great win for the Grizz. It certainly helped that the Thunder (read: Westbrook) tried to do too much himself. Thank you Russell for helping take Durant out of the game.
I would certainly love to hear your thoughts about Mike Conley. I have been on board the train of people who thought Conley was overpaid. However, I really cannot deny what my eyes are seeing. Grizzlies fans, myself included, really should start appreciating Conley's maturation.
His turnovers are down. His decision making is great. He is still not the world's best defender, but he has clearly matured as a floor leader. He is holding his own, or doing better than, superior point guards in the playoffs.
I hate the "zach is a horse we're riding analogy", but if we're going to use it then Conley is turning into one hell of a jockey.
