Otto Porter scored 18 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and two triples in 37 minutes vs. He hit 7-of-14 shots and 2-of-2 free throws, and even saw some minutes as a small-ball center in this one to counter Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five -- it's an interesting wrinkle to note in case the Bulls buy out Robin Lopez. Porter's fantasy owners are enjoying his move to Chicago so far, but it's too bad he went from having the best possible fantasy playoff schedule (4-4-4 in Weeks 22-24) to one of the worst (3-3-3). the Bucks on Monday.

He collected 10 rebounds as well seemingly like he will fit in nicely with a more traditional system compared to the new-age Raptors system he used to play in. Tonight, he will also be able to pad the box score because of the lack of depth in the Bulls back court. The Grizzlies will use him more as a bruising center which will help his game grow. He came off the bench as he was still nursing back from injury. JV should have another nice night if he is given the green light in minutes. However, you wouldnt know it last night because those 23 points came in only 21 minutes. As for Valanciunas, he had his first game in a Grizzlies jersey last night.

Bickerstaff's entire postgame press conference - more than four minutes long - was on the play where Conley was knocked down in the closing seconds with no call. He repeatedly said the team has talked to the league about the lack of calls for the Memphis point guard, but the Memphis coach sees no change in what he believes is a lack of well-earned respect for Conley. It's led to no change.'' Bickerstaff went on to emphasize that a player like Conley is the kind of person the league should want to promote. ''This season we've had the same conversation about Mike Conley and nothing has changed,'' Bickerstaff said, later adding: ''I don't know how far we have to go to get results.

It will probably be closer than people like, but Memphis will get it done on the backs of Bradley and JV again. JJJ will be able to bully him down low if the opportunity is there. I predict big games again for both of them and also Jaren Jackson Jr., who will have a nice matchup against their young sensation, Lauri Markennen. With all that being said, I think the Grizzlies will pull this one out.

Bickerstaff is apparently one of the last people remaining on Avery Bradley Island, calling him "an NBA starter for sure" and "one of best perimeter defenders in our game." Strong game aside, we're not ready to call him a standard-league pickup and it's not like he'll ever shoot 15-of-21 from the field again in his life. Avery Bradley went off for a career-high 33 points in a 108-107 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday, adding six rebounds, six assists, one steal and three triples. Bradley was ranked outside the top-300 for category leagues before this outburst, but credit to him for stepping up with Mike Conley battling an illness. Talk about coming out of nowhere. Coach J.B.
