Marc Gasol News

Marc Gasol said his main goal this offseason is to work on his rebounding. "Obviously, rebounding is an issue for me," Gasol said. He's actually not bad at getting a rebound when he has a chance, but the stats say he's out of position a lot. Among the 176 players to log at least 24 minutes per game, Gasol ranked 41st in contested rebounding percentage, but he ranked just 91st in rebounding chance percentage. In other words, he should improve on getting better position before the shot hits the rim than after it. If Gasol can add 104 treys this season to his previous career total of just 12, maybe he can increase his boards from 6.4 per game in 2016-17 to closer to 10 in 2017-18.

Marc Gasol scored 18 points with five rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 45 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday. The Grizzlies did get away from the heavy usage of Gasol in the post in the last two games, but the Spurs were able to make an adjustment to limit him with more physicality. Coach David Fizdale played Gasol a whopping 41.4 minutes per game in the last five games, and Gasol's minutes held steady at 34.2 per game during his 74 regular season outings. Considering the major concerns about his foot fracture heading into this season, this year was a win for Gasol, especially with how he added some 3-point shooting. He's 32, but his style of play should translate for a few more years.

Marc Gasol hit 6-of-12 shots for 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, zero steals, zero blocks and zero 3-pointers in 41 minutes in Tuesday's Game 5 116-103 loss to the Spurs. Gasol has been good for plenty of 3-pointers and blocked shots this season, but they weren't there tonight against San Antonio. He had 12 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in his previous game, a Grizzlies win, but didn't quite have it in this one. The Grizzlies will be looking for him to be on top of his game on Thursday, but if Gasol isn't rolling, along with Mike Conley, the Grizzlies' season could be ending that night.

Marc Gasol hit a game-winning 12-foot runner with 0.7 seconds left in overtime to beat the Spurs 110-108 on Saturday, finishing with 16 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one block, seven turnovers and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes. It was a very difficult shot over LaMarcus Aldridge to earn the win in one of the best games you'll see in the next two months (video in link below). Gasol did look a step slow for most of this game and seven turnovers is very unusual for him. Coach David Fizdale has clearly hitched his wagon to Gasol and is likely going to ask him to play 40 minutes every night when garbage time isn't a factor. Considering how much Mike Conley dominated, the Spurs may focus more on limiting him, which may open things up for Gasol.

Marc Gasol scored a playoff career-high 32 points during a 111-82 loss to the Spurs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. His previous high was 26 points, but it still wasn't enough. Coach David Fizdale said Gasol and Mike Conley were going to have to step up in a big way, but it looked like coach Gregg Popovich coached up his guys to be more aggressive against Gasol on defense. The Grizzlies are just not as good as the Spurs, but at least Gasol is going to get his in this series.
