Brad Stevens won't win Coach of the Year, but plays like this are a good example of why he'd be a deserving recipient of the award.
The Chicago Bulls weren't exactly on verge of a late-game comeback against the Memphis Grizzlies, but Tom Thibodeau's team had life nonetheless. But there's nothing the Grit 'N Grind crew does better than suck the life out of opponents, and Mike Conley and Tony Allen did just that to seal a key Memphis road win.
Incessant gritting and grinding has made Tony Allen's career. It's not exactly surprising, then, that his hyper-intense attitude would occasionally be directed at a friendly foe. Following Allen's team levied suspension for the Memphis Grizzlies' loss to the Utah Jazz last night comes a report that he engaged a "physical confrontation" with teammate Nick Calathes during a recent practice.
A 7-2 man shouldn't be able to so quickly catch at the key, take one dribble, and explode for an off-hand power slam in traffic. It's precisely the Frenchman's insane length, though, that makes him among the few even remotely capable of pulling off such a feat. Make sense?

Ben McLemore comes up with the loose ball and unleashes a windmill dunk in transition.
A first quarter screen and roll saw CP3 feed DeAndre Jordan for the poster on Marc Gasol.
Just a few days before the 2014-2015 season tipped off, the Dime braintrust seriously debated naming Marc Gasol basketball's best center. It's the frequency of seemingly innocuous plays like above that not only spurred such consideration, but also makes us confident saying we were wrong – the Spaniard really is the NBA's top pivot.
The Memphis Grizzlies have the second best record in the brutally difficult Western Conference at 37-13 after knocking off the East-leading Hawks on Sunday.
The entire league is having trouble defending James Harden.
Much like the Clippers against the Nets, the Suns should have beat the Grizzlies last night.
The best teams have multiple stars.
Lawler returned to the ring (kind of), and the Grizzlies offer up a challenger for Brock Lesnar.
We're sick of writing about injuries.
This isn't the type of play we expect to see from Rajon Rondo in 2015.
