Lee moved to the bench in Sunday's win over the Timberwolves, finishing with seven points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), six rebounds, a steal, and a blocked shot over 28 minutes. Though he was replaced in the Grizzlies' starting five by Jeff Green, Lee still saw a similar minutes total (28) to what he's averaged throughout the season (29.2). It's possible that coach Dave Joerger just wanted to use Green in the lineup to match up better with the Timberwolves' sizable perimeter players, so Lee could very well reclaim a starting role in short order. Even if that doesn't happen, Lee's minutes should remain relatively stable.
Lee posted a team-high 18 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and a steal over 30 minutes in Thursday's 115-96 loss to Portland. Lee has turned in two solid offensive performances following a forgettable 2-for-11, six-point outing versus Golden State on Monday. The 18 points Thursday represented a high-water mark for both the Grizzlies and the veteran guard, whose previous best scoring night on the season had been a 15-point effort versus the Nets on Halloween. With Memphis experiencing some wild swings on offense in the season's early going, consistent scoring contributions from Lee will be a welcome sight for both the team and his fantasy owners.
Lee posted a game-high 18 points (6-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three assists, a rebound, a steal, and a block over 29 minutes in Sunday's 90-68 victory over the Timberwolves. The veteran shooting guard tallied preseason highs in minutes, shot attempts, and three-pointers, while also totaling double-digit points for the fourth consecutive contest. Lee has flashed a superb shooting stroke over the exhibition slate, hitting 56 percent of his attempts (18-for-32). An above-average long-range marksman over his career, Lee has been particularly proficient from beyond the arc in the preseason, hitting 67 percent (8-for-12) of his buckets from downtown. Lee appears for a productive season alongside point guard Mike Conley in the Grizzlies' backcourt.
Lee accumulated 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, a rebound, and a steal over 27 minutes in Thursday's preseason win over Israeli club Maccabi Haifa. Lee has produced similar numbers in both of the Grizzlies' preseason games, as he scored 11 points on four made field goals, including two three-pointers, in Tuesday's exhibition against the Rockets. After starting 74 of 77 games with the Grizzlies last season, it appears Lee will again top the depth chart at shooting guard in 2015-16 while seeing around 30 minutes per contest.
Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee shared the team scoring lead with 18 points on 8 of 11 shooting in his team's 97-82 win over the Blazers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Wednesday. Lee scored just nine points in Game 1 but was able to post his best scoring performance since delivering the same total in the team's first game of March. He also kicked in three steals, two rebounds and one assist in 33 minutes in the win. The Grizzlies have a 2-0 series lead for the first time in franchise history. They'll travel to Portland for Game 3 Saturday.
