Thunder's Anthony Morrow: Posts season-high four assists Wednesday
Morrow handed out a season-four dimes in a season-high 31 minutes on Wednesday, and he appears to have earned a fairly reliable role off the bench for the Thunder. After earning a grand total of 60 minutes while appearing in only eight of the first 15 games in 2016-17, Morrow is now averaging 11.8 points (on 47.7 percent shooting), 2.2 threes (on 50.0 percent shooting), 1.4 assists, 0.4 rebounds, and 0.2 blocks in 23.6 minutes over the last five contests. On a team that for the most part lacks outside shooting, Morrow offers that in spades. However, his inability to defend will probably keep him from playing 30 minutes or more on most nights. As a result, he is likely best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
