This is what nba.com reports this morning. Now did you actually see the game? Do you agree with a “Thriller”? I mean it was a close game in the end and it was exciting but to call it a Thriller is a little bit too much I think. But what do you expect when an NBA team takes a loss on a Euro-team?
Talking about a thriller – the game started with the Grizzlies up by as much as 10 then turned around with Unicaja Malaga up by ten and then again the Grizzlies up by ten. If could have been a thriller in the end if Mike Miller would have made his two free throws but he didn’t.
Now what was positive for the Grizzlies in this game? Well Juan Carlos “la bomba” Navarro showed the American fans that he can shoot 5/6 from the three point line. The other Spanish guy Mr. Gasol wasn’t a big surprise, we know he is a good post player.
What might be interesting for all Europeans and especially Euroleague fantasy players – check out Boniface Ndong. He clearly won the game for Unicaja Malaga with his tip in and dunk at the end where the Grizzlies defense was kind of taking a break. You might want to rethink if he doesn’t help your fantasy team since he is “only” 44 points.
