    Chandler scores at the buzzer! It was a lob pass.

    The basket is good. Whew. They reviewed it. I didn't think there was any question.

    And the Grizzlies give up a dunk with .6 of a second. :D

    It was good to see Chandler celebrating. The old man did it.

    Booker IS a superstar, right now. He is unreal. One of the best scorers in the league and doing it with defenses keyed on him all game long.

    Eddie Johnson called the play before hand. He's got a really good mind for the game, I wouldn't mind seeing him as a coach in the future but I appreciate his take as a commentator.

    I thought the ball was in the cylinder, but what the hey, the Suns got robbed on some bad calls too.

    So Bender could shoot the ball from out of bounds so long as Chandler touched the ball before it went through the cylinder. That's my understanding.

    Awesome play call by Triano and executed by Bender and Chandler.

    Booker laughed as they discussed it after the game... that Triano knew this little known rule.

    Chriss had 13 rebounds? Looking at the box score and that surprised me. I only caught the 2nd quarter and the final 2 minutes and didn't notice him playing that well, although he did look better than he did earlier in the year. Glad to see him contributing on the glass for a change.

    Here is video of the final play, it was a great pass by Bender. The angles at 14 seconds and 33 seconds show that Chandler did put it in rather than it being a made shot by Bender.

    And Bender was guarded well by Gasol.

    Wright was like... Chandler pushed off.

    Yet another reason he should never be compared to Kukoc... either as finished product or in his youth.

    Isn’t really coordinated with his body. He’s not 13-15 years old. By his age, a guy should at the very least be coordinated. Doesn’t mean he’s got to be jumping out of the gym, but... man.

    I thought Chriss managed to give Memphis the game with some really bad turnovers, but Bender and Chandler came to the rescue. That was an amazing play!

    Also, it is good to see Booker back.

    I didn't make the Kukoc comparison nor do I want to make that comparison.
