THE STORY: Game Preview

Marc Gasol is still great and Mike Conley is also still great. This is not breaking news nor should it be. If he’s healthy and plays, Conley is going to be an issue for the Nets. He absolutely wreaked havoc in Brooklyn during the last matchup scoring 37 points to go with 10 assists and a bunch of clutch shots that helped the Grizzlies win in double overtime.

Gasol is for sure healthy and for sure going to be an issue for Brooklyn. He’s averaging 16 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game to go along with 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks. He stuffs the stat sheet in addition to being one of the toughest, most versatile, smartest big men in the league. There’s also just something poetic and even sweet about a guy who’s good playing with his entire career with one team, especially a smaller (actually the smallest) market team like Memphis. I love it.
