DeRozan & LaVine Are Cooking for the Bulls, Memphis Winning Without Ja Morant, and the Rockets Can't Lose
Manage episode 310997926 series 1652791
The Chicago Bulls are now #2 in the Eastern Conference and got a big win over the Brooklyn Nets over the weekend. The Memphis Grizzlies have been without Ja Morant for 4 straight games and they have 4 wins by a total of 114 points (ok... the OKC 73-point win helped), how have they been so good? After losing 15 straight games the Houston Rockets have won their last 6 games behind Christian Wood's monstrous play.
Nick Angstadt (@NickVanExit) is joined by Matt Peck ( @Locked On Bulls ) to discuss how Chicago has put it all together this year. How have Zach LaVine & DeMar DeRozan worked so well on offense? How have Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball lead the Bulls to a Top 10 Defense this year? What's the latest on Coby White and what is his role?
Then Shawn Coleman (Locked On Grizzlies) stops by to discuss how the Grizzlies have been so good this week. When will Ja Morant return and how much of this is sustainable when he does come back? What has Jaren Jackson Jr. done this season to bounce back? How has Desmond Bane jumped into the Most Improved Player talks?
Finally Jackson Gatlin ( @Locked On Rockets ) is BACK to discuss how the Rockets haven't lost since they last talked. Christian Wood's move to the full-time 5 continues to pay off for Stephen Silas. Who else has stepped up in this streak? Is it just a coincidence that Jalen Green has been out during this stretch?
