Zach Randolph    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Zach Randolph and James Ennis will start for JaMychal Green and Wayne Selden in Game 3 on Thursday. Coach David Fizdale said there could be lineup changes coming, and he's not messing around this time. The Grizzlies did have some luck with their Z-Bo lineups and really any change makes sense after they were thumped in the first two games. Expect Randolph to see minutes in the upper 20s.

Zach Randolph    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Grizzlies' head coach David Fizdale confirmed that he will tweak his starting lineup for Thursday's Game 3 against the Spurs. Fizdale wouldn't say exactly who will be moving into the starting five, but both James Ennis and Zach Randolph are the most obvious potential candidates considering JaMychal Green and Wayne Seldon haven't done much of anything as starters. Randolph also started the second half of Game 2, and finished with 18 points, 10 boards, one assist and three steals in 36 minutes, so he could be on the radar as a potential low-budget DFS option tonight.

Tony Allen    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tony Allen (calf) will not play in Game 3 on Thursday. He's out indefinitely with a calf strain, which usually requires a couple weeks on the sidelines. The Grizzlies have missed Allen terribly and have to figure out how to stop a red-hot Kawhi Leonard. Vince Carter, James Ennis and Andrew Harrison should pick up some wing minutes.

David Fizdale    C  Grizzlies

 

 

David Fizdale has been fined $30,000 for publicly criticizing the officiating following Memphis' Game 2 loss to the Spurs. If you somehow missed it, Fizdale's postgame comments went viral after his epic rant following Memphis' Game 2 loss, which can be viewed in the link below. Some Grizzlies' sponsors have already said they would pay any fine Fizdale might have incurred from these comments, so his wallet might not take a hit. Take that for data.

Zach Randolph    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Zach Randolph started the second half of Game 2 vs. the Spurs and double-doubled with 18 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and three steals in 36 minutes. Z-Bo nearly helped the Grizzlies claw their way back from a 26-point deficit and shot 9-of-18 from the field, and with his team falling into a 2-0 series hole, he may move into the starting lineup for Game 3 on Thursday. If he does, Z-Bo would be a solid low-priced option in DFS because JaMychal Green hasn't given the Grizzlies much in this series.

Mike Conley    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Mike Conley scored 24 points vs. the Spurs on Monday, but it wasn't enough as the Grizzlies fell to 0-2 in the first round of the playoffs. Conley hit 8-of-18 shots and dished out eight assists with one rebound, one steal, one block and four triples, but head coach David Fizdale didn't like how his star PG was officiated and called it a "poorly, unprofessional officiated game." You can check out part of the exchange in the link below, but Fizdale should be preparing to write some checks to the league office even though he made some strong arguments. The Grizzlies had a strong second half after getting run off the floor before the break, so they will try to build on that momentum in Memphis on Thursday for Game 3.

Zach Randolph    F/C  Grizzlies

 

 

Zach Randolph and James Ennis started the second half of Game 2 vs. the Spurs on Monday. The Grizzlies have to try something, as they're on the verge of their second straight blowout defeat -- they were trailing by 19 points at the half. JaMychal Green played just six minutes in the first half and will start the third quarter on the bench along with Wayne Selden.

Mike Conley    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Mike Conley "didn't really sleep" after losing Game 1 to the Spurs on Saturday, adding, "It felt like a done-for-the-year type of loss." "We knew coming in [Gregg Popovich] was going to key on one guy," Conley said. "Different years, it’s been different people. So it’s my first time having to deal with it, honestly, so I’m going to figure it out." Conley saw a ton of different looks from the Spurs, who rotated defenders and swarmed him with double-teams, resulting in a quiet 13-point line on 5-of-14 shooting. Memphis will need him in prime form to even the series on Monday.

Zach Randolph    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Randolph recorded 18 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three steals and one assist across 36 minutes during a 96-82 loss to the Spurs on Monday.
