The Grizzlies and Warriors play twice in the next few days, with the first game between the teams tonight in Memphis (5 p.m., CNSBA). They play again Wednesday at Oracle Arena (7:30 p.m., CSNBA).
So, this is your chance to really get a good look at O.J. Mayo and (hopefully) Hasheem Thabeet. Grizzlies center Marc Gasol has missed the past two games because of injury and Thabeet has played well in his place, averaging 9 points, 9.5 rebounds and three blocks in about 28 minutes per game. Gasol’s status for tonight is unknown at this point. I expect Gasol will be back by Wednesday, so I’m hoping he sits out tonight so we can see 30 minutes or so of Thabeet.
After the game, I’d like to read your honest thoughts on Mayo and Thabeet. Post your “scouting reports” here. One game isn’t much on which to base an opinion, but it’s a start. I’ll post my thoughts on the game and those two players tonight or tomorrow morning.
