Report Card: Memphis Grizzlies vs. San Antonio Spurs

Grading out the individual performances in last night's gutty but not-quite-enough loss to the Immortal Machine of San Antonio.

Gotta hand it to this unrecognizable collection of Grizzlies, they play hard. They might not know each other's last names, but they play their butts off.

The possibility of breaking San Antonio's home win streak was too much to ask for, but Monday at home is in play. If hanging onto that five seed is going to come to fruition, that one would go a long way.

In the meantime, get well and #FreeZBo.

Humor me.

Allen

C

Tony Allen: 24 min, 9 p, 2 r, 1 a, 1 s, 1 b, -5

After catching fire in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, TA was bound to regress a bit last night. Brought his usual pit bull-like tenacity on defense. Also -- I love him and Lance on the court at the same time. So much entertainment, so much crazy, so little shooting, so much willingness to shoot in spite of that.

Barnes

B-

Matt Barnes: 35 min, 14 p, 6 r, 3 a, 1 s, 1 b, +3

Barnes is great as your fifth option on offense. When he's being asked to create, though? Not so much.

Assuming everyone outside of Marc is back come playoff time, though, Barnes could be a real difference maker in a series against the Clippers or Thunder.

JaGreen

JaMychal Green: 25 min, 20 p, 2 r, 3 a, 2 b, -2

Green continues to thrive in a bigger role with continued DNPs from Bo, Z and Spain, Big. Was oddly absent on the boards last night but got it done on offense, finishing as Memphis's leading scorer.

Andersen

Chris Andersen: 37 min, 13 p, 7 r, 2 a, 1 s, -4

Bad Time

Stephenson

B

Lance Stephenson: 28 min, 17 p, 3 a, 1 r, 3 s, +0

The resurgence of Born Ready continues. With the cap exploding, with Lance looking motivated, with little other free agent options...

McCallum

C-

Ray McCallum: 21 min, 7 p, 4 r, 1 a, 1 s, +0

Had some extra motivation to be great against his former employer last night, and was thoroughly meh.

Martin

B-

Jarell Martin: 16 min, 3 p, 2 r, 2 a, -3

His ability to stick with guys on the perimeter defensively could be a game changer down the road:

In other news, the mash up between Jarell Martin and Jarnell Stokes by our friends over at The Starters was fantastic.

Hollins

D

Ryan Hollins: 12 min, 0 p, 1 r, 1 s, -1

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Carter

C+

Vince Carter: 13 min, 10 p, 1 r, 1 a, -10

Every Vince carter dunk should be stowed away in a time capsule at this point. You never know which is going to be his last.

Weber

C-

Xavier Munford: 7 min, 0 p, 3 r, 2 a, -2

Whatever.

Head Coach Dave Joerger

Another fine coaching job by CDJ, but Dave. Shave the damn goatee, man. You look like you should be coaching a middle school baseball team.
