The Baseline: OKC and Memphis success in the West

The Baseline charges forth in the New Year with a deep look into some of the drama-filled and surprising storylines around the association. On this week’s show we discuss:

The Breakdown

With the Western Conference being weaker than expected, two teams have been able to better results than anticipated as the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies have playoff hopes.

Memphis is young but competitive as their talent is finding the necessary chemistry to close out games after an abysmal start.

  • Taylor Jenkins remains relatively unknown amongst NBA casuals but does he deserve more credit for the team’s recent surge…Are they for real and can they stay in the hunt for the eighth seed all season long?
  • Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. are building a rapport and remaining consistent.
  • Jonas Valanciunas finally is stable in his standing with a team and the results are showing.
  • Brandon Clarke continues to prove he dropped in the draft unnecessarily and is giving the team a great lift off the bench.
  • Jae Crowder is proving to be an important veteran for the team’s balance as he looks for stability himself.
  • Will the Grizzlies leverage Andre Iguodala into an asset they can use this season and beyond?
