Zach Randolph too big, too strong, too good for Warriors to stop (VIDEO)

All through Game 3 Saturday it seemed like Memphis’ big men could get the ball wherever they wanted, which usually meant deep in the post. Combine that positioning with guys like Festus Ezeli being asked to stop Zach Randolph for stretches, and you end up with Z-Bo scoring a team-high 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting.

Randolph had the kind of big game the Grizzlies need from him this series. He hit shots close to the basket but also was 4-of-4 from the right side midrange.

He’s a problem the Warriors don’t quite know how to solve yet. They need to figure it out — and start hitting the looks they get as well — quickly, or we are going to all have to listen to Charles Barkley say “you can’t win shooting jump shots” for another year.
