Sounding noticeably frustrated after the team’s latest loss, Memphis Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph said the team’s offense is, “pick-and-roll now,” Geoff Calkins of the Memphis Commercial Appeal writes.
Despite a strong start on Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns, Randolph ended up taking just one shot attempt in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ 96-90 loss. He still finished the game with 21 points and 13 rebounds, but it’s obvious that Memphis is still looking for an identity on offense after trading leading scorer Rudy Gay.
While it’s worth wondering just how good Gay is, it’s become clear that the Grizzlies miss his ability to create shots and attack the rim. He didn’t always do those things as frequently or efficiently as one would like, but Memphis is still adjusting to a roster that had featured Gay for years.
