|Haddadi criticizes Grizzlies coach for not giving him more playing time||
Phoenix Suns center Hamed Haddadi has criticized Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins for not giving him a chance.
Hamed Haddadi played a career-high 28 minutes off the Suns' bench on Saturday, scoring six points with 11 rebounds, one steal, and three blocks in a 107-105 win against the Houston Rockets.
"When I was in Memphis, the coach always took me out after the first mistake, but here, after the first mistake they don't take me out," Haddadi said after the game.
"I was feeling good, and I played all four quarters. I was in Memphis for four or five years, and over time I learned something. You have to be patient," he added.
The 7-2 center became the first Iranian-born player in NBA history when he made his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2008-2009 season.
