In yesterday’s scrimmage, Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas got the last laugh. And the laugh before that. And the laugh before that.
Valanciunas caught the ball wide open behind the arc. In the paint, Embiid just waved off Valanciunas – an improved outside shooter – rather than closing out.
Valanciunas nailed a 3-pointer.
And waved back at Embiid.
And then blocked Embiid on the other end.
