Check out Marc Gasol’s length-of-court assist for Spain (VIDEO)


Top that, Mr. Outlet Pass Kevin Love.

The best part of Marc Gasol’s length of the court assist to Sergio Llull  is the discus-like pass — that is impressive. Grizzlies exec John Hollinger went on twitter and said Memphis is going to add this to their playbook.

Spain won the EuroBasket quarterfinals game against Serbia 90-60 and the game wasn’t that close. Seriously. Spain has been the class of the tournament and stepped it up now that quarterfinals are here.  Serbia needs to win one of its next two games to earn an invite to the World Championships next year in Spain. Where they could see more Marc Gasol passing.

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
