Might as well start labeling these entries with his name since he’s the only M-O-T in the N-B-A.
The Memphis Grizzlies forward came out of Friday’s game — a 110-100 win over the host Utah Jazz — with thigh soreness. Casspi played seven minutes, scoring four points with three rebounds and an assist. he played just for minutes in their 102-100 loss to the host Phoenix Suns on Sunday but he scored a pair and had two assists and a steal. So he may not play much, but he’s active when he is on the court. Unfortunately, he missed last night’s 112-101 loss to the host Golden State Warriors with thigh tightness. Next game is tonight as Memphis (5-4, eighth in the Western conference and second in the Southwest Division) hosts the Denver Nuggets.
There was a nice write-up about him in the local paper, but I question the left-handed compliment-type headline. Maybe I’m just overly sensitive.
College basketball begins tonight. If I feel ambitious, I’ll look into the Jewish component in the NCAA.Tags: Omri Casspi
