• Speaking to reporters after the Grizzlies’ loss on Monday, Mike Conley downplayed any talk about a correlation between his hurting foot and game.

    “I’ve been just moving the ball and making sure we’re playing together as a team, and that’s how we’ve been winning. We need to stick to the plan and hope I can make some shots within those opportunities early in the first half. In the second half, I know its 100 percent my time to go.” Conley is getting the shots he normally would take but he is shooting just 39.7 percent from the field and 31.4 percent on 3-point attempts, both career lows. He has been a clutch performer though with 10 points per game in second halves while averaging 6.3 points in fourth quarters. There is a chance that Conley is simply adjusting to receiving star treatment from opposing defenses and this might be a great buy-low opportunity but owners should also keep in mind that Conley missed the entire 2016 playoffs with an injury to his troublesome Achilles.
