Zach Randolph Looking to Bounce Back in Game 2


Following the worst Playoff performance of his NBA career, an anxious Zach Randolph says he must play better going forward. Z-Bo couldn’t sleep after Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals (during which he only managed to score 2 points.) Per the AP: “Zach Randolph’s miserable Western Conference finals debut led to a sleepless night and a long film session. The All-Star power forward and his Memphis Grizzlies are hardly down and out, though. In both rounds of the playoffs so far, Memphis has lost Game 1 before rallying back to knock out the Los Angeles Clippers and then the Oklahoma City Thunder. This time, Randolph had his worst game ever in the playoffs, managing two points in a 105-83 blowout. His only lower-scoring game in 40 playoff appearances was when he played 1 minute as a rookie for Portland in a 2002 game. ‘It’s more frustrating than embarrassing,’ said Randolph, who missed his first seven shots in Game 1. ‘It’s basketball. It happens to the best of them. Muhammad Ali, he got knocked down before. What made him the greatest fighter in the world is he always bounced back.’”

    i’m keeping my eye on this. i might jump on nbk’s hollins bandwagon depending on what happens with z-bo. throwing it to him in the post just won’t work, duncan is just way to good at taking away z-bo’s left and then crowding him on the jumpshot. they need to make him catch it on the move or free him up for spot ups. i always liked hollins as a motivator and chemistry guy (chemist according to scalabrine), which i think he is one of the best at. but how good he really is with the x’s and o’s will show itself in these upcoming games.

    Something tells me that when Z-Bo erupts, Marc Gasol will be quiet. Tim Duncan is to blame.

    I dont know why people were so surprised that the Spurs shut Z-Bo down in Game 1. In 3 of the 4 regular season meetings he was locked down by SA’s defense. It’s not 2011 no more when the Spurs were forced to use DeJuan Blair and old ass Antonio McDyess to guard him.
