Default OJ Mayo playing better for Grizzlies in early 2012

Memphis Commercial Appeal:

The Grizzlies have rediscovered Mayo, and Mayo has traded personal apathy for productivity.

"I can play and I'm an offensive threat," Mayo said with renewed confidence. "It's not like I'm going to put it up every time. But I can make a play. At the end of the day, coach Hollins and I have grown. (The other day) coach drew up a play for me to go back door. But the (defender) dropped and I found Marc and Marc found Rudy and Rudy hit a three. It's just playing basketball and coach is preaching that every day. Just play ball. Just make the basketball play. That's what I'm trying to do."

Mayo is now playing like the franchise envisioned. That was made possible by Hollins' acknowledgement that he needed to stop restricting Mayo with rigid offensive sets. So Mayo has a green light. He shoots and passes at will instead of waiting for standstill shots or to run off screens to shoot.
