The Memphis Grizzlies offense had been off to a really solid start on the season, and the 4-point line has played a role in that. Also, they’ve made strides in closing games on the season as well.

So on this week’s episode of “The Long View,” I have Evan Barnes — the Commercial Appeal’s beat writer for the Grizzlies and Tiger football — on the podcast to talk about the Grizzlies’ performance closing games and the implementation of the 4-point line.

  • Are we finding the right closing lineup and the right recipe for building around Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson?
  • How Dillon Brooks fits in “make more 3’s, take more 3’s”
  • The sustainability of offensive output
  • Should there be a 4-point shot??
