Memphis and Phoenix seem very similar. Both teams did great job of filling roster with long, versatile players. Tough to deal with on both ends, especially when there’s a good anchor at center and superstars in back court. – 8:40 PM Julia Poe @byjuliapoe

AJ Green could have gone with his father to Iowa State, but stayed in Cedar Falls and finished with 32 points tonight in the victory over Loyola Chicago. – 8:31 PM Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
Steven Adams is eating the Bulls up right now. Six points and already *ten* rebounds in eight minutes. Five of those are offensive boards.
On his latest rebound, he spun and immediately threw a QB pass to the opposite end for a Zaire Williams layup. – 8:26 PM Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef

Griz coach Taylor Jenkins said Ja Morant is feeling really good after treatment yesterday. His hip cramped up during Thu’s game at Minnesota, stretched it out and returned. #Bulls – 8:04 PM KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Ja Morant just walked from Grizzlies locker room through the players tunnel and onto the court with a Memphis staffer trailing him with a large speaker blaring loud music.
Hey, @Rob Schaefer, gonna need that for next game’s walk to press row. – 8:02 PM Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
When #Bulls played at Memphis on MLK Day, DeRozan hit 10 of 24 shots for 24 pts. Saw a lot of Jaren Jackson Jr. in that game, will be interesting to see how that matchup goes tonight. #Bulls didn’t have LaVine, Green or DJJ that day. – 8:01 PM Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
DeMar DeRozan is lighting the league up. He has scored 35 or more in eight straight games. He had 24 points vs . Memphis on MLK Day.
Do the Grizzlies hold DeMar under 35 points today? – 6:46 PM Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR

Heading into tonight’s game at UC, Memphis has lost two in a row after winning 22 of 28.
