First, let me send out our thoughts and prayers to Andrew Bynum. Let’s all stay as optimistic as possible until we get the results of the MRI he will be getting tomorrow in New York.
Now back to the game, we didn’t start the game well and after Bynum went down, we seemed to play even more out of sync. Our defense was pretty much nonexistent, we allowed the Grizzlies to shoot wide open shoots and shoot 57% from the field as a team.
Similarly to last night’s game, we came out of halftime with some sense of urgency. Kobe and Pau set the tone and we again broke open the game in the third by outscoring the Grizzlies by 15. Again, our defense improved in the second half, holding Memphis to only 37 after halftime.
I hope everyone stay safe tomorrow and enjoy the Super Bowl, and Go Steelers!
Player of the Game: Pau Gasol and his 24 points , 8 rebounds, and 4 assists will get my player of the game tonight. He played a very well overall game tonight.
Play of the Game: Kobe’s left handed dunk in the second quarter.
What’s Up Next: We’ll be in the Big Apple on Monday night to face the Knicks.
