After scoring 19 points in the first three quarters, Rudy Gay has zero points in the fourth quarter. Worse, he’s only taken one shot: a missed jumper at the 4 minute-52 second mark.
Who is to blame for that? Is it Gay for not making an impact on the game? Is it Mike Conley for not getting him going? Is it Lionel Hollins for not running plays for him? It’s probably a combination of the three, but no matter what, this is an illustration of the Grizzlies’ fourth-quarter woes.
Sometimes, Gay shouldn’t take many shots. This afternoon was not one of those times.
