Verno and KOC discuss Ja Morant’s return for the Grizzlies, as well as the Pacers’ continuing struggles since the IST, before explaining why the Pistons are that bad after they lost to the injury-riddled Jazz—extending their losing streak to 25 games (01:04). They then move on to discuss the news about Zion Williamson’s contract not being fully guaranteed anymore and what it means for the Pelicans (22:37). Also, the guys discuss Tim Bontemps’s first NBA MVP straw poll of the season (32:26).
