Ben McLemore missed a breakaway spinning dunk.

That foreboded even bigger problems for the Grizzlies.

Memphis blew a 12-point second-half lead in a 116-107 loss to the Raptors last night.

Did the Grizzlies’ effort satisfy Gasol?

Devin Walker of 92.9 FM ESPN:

Gasol:

Not in the second half, because we started thinking about ourselves too much. Oh, this guy missed me, or this guy didn’t pass me the ball, or this guy didn’t help me. We started making too many excuses. And then we got a little bit lazy. We didn’t have no urgency. I don’t understand, when you lost – what was it? – 12 out of 13 games, how guys can’t have urgency. That, to me, is mind-boggling.

The last time Gasol was this frustrated, the Grizzlies fired the coach. They can’t fire all his teammates.

But they can ask them not to spin on breakaway dunks.
