Zach Randolph’s reaction to coming to Memphis: “Shit!” Lots of mixed emotions because of his family and friends in the city, and he was ready to make it work.
He didn’t know what to think, but he wanted to change the narrative.
He did that for sure. – 7:47 PM

Zach Randolph said that Game 6 against the Spurs stands above all as favorite on-court memory, but he has so many here in Memphis – 7:45 PM

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
The Rockets got back to their hotel at 2am last night.
Silas said the team will lean in guys who haven’t played much of late tonight considering how much energy they expended in the Bucks loss.
“We’re going to need everybody tonight.” – 6:41 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
“It was bumpy. It was unsettling. We saw the line of storms & where we were going. Once we got close to Memphis, we had to divert & we had to circle for like 30 minutes, but it felt like an hour, maybe it was an hour,” #Rockets HC Silas about their flight to Memphis last night – 6:40 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
What’s up, Grizz Nation? @PAKA_FLOCKA here! Got a thread of some stuff from Taylor Jenkins’ pregame availability.

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Stephen Silas on having to fly in through the storm: “It was bumpy. It was unsettling… Moments like that you’re just kind of at the mercy of the pilot and the weather.”
Silas said there were a few players who would have happily taken the bus last night to Memphis instead. – 6:39 PM

Houston Rockets HC Stephen Silas said he is happy to be here tonight for Zach Randolph’a Jersey retirement and called him one of his favorites that he never coached.
He added, “I wish I would have coached him.” – 6:38 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
No starters reveal from HC Silas yet for #Rockets vs Memphis, but he did note that with Eric Gordon out tonight, they’ll use several guys as point guard by committee – Tate, Augustin, Christopher. – 6:36 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Jenkins still “hopeful” Jaren Jackson Jr. might play tonight. Gametime decision. – 6:24 PM

“..When you hear about the Grizzlies, you think about Z-Bo…” -Coach Jenkins – 6:21 PM

Joe Vardon @joevardon
With Jaren Jackson (knee) added to the injury report, it would be really something if the Grizzlies continue this torrid pace. But their coach says the team is finally listening to what is being preached, and success follows. ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/3008599/2021/1…5:47 PM

ICYMI: “That’s a sign of respect to me”
19-year-old Alperen Sengun tormented the defending champion Bucks defense for three quarters, so when the fourth quarter started the Bucks adjusted by sticking Giannis on him audacy.com/sportsradio610…5:04 PM

Garrison Mathews hit 6 threes last night. His numbers through 12 G: 13.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 48.1 FG%, 41.8 3PT% (3.2/7.6).
While it’s happening elsewhere, it’s a good sign the Wizards front office spotted his talent as an undrafted player out of Lipscomb. pic.twitter.com/neLeFOlgbB2:49 PM
