Dave Joerger Memphis Grizzlies Quick Hitters
Attached are two plays from former Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Joerger. Memphis has been very good at being patient and finding the open option in the play. The first play, Loop Slip, was used as a sideline out-of-bounds play in the game but can be used as a set play as well.
