Randolph tallied 20 points (9-21 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and an assist over 39 minutes in Friday's 96-87 Game 3 loss to the Spurs. The veteran forward managed his second consecutive double-double, and enjoyed his best shooting night from the field during the series. With the game being the most closely contested of the three, Randolph also logged a series-high 39 minutes. He could certainly be in for a similar workload Sunday in Game 4 as the Grizzlies' most reliable offensive weapon, considering Memphis will be attempting to stave off elimimnation.
Randolph was held to 11 points (5-17 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, and one steal over 30 minutes in Tuesday's 94-68 loss to the Spurs in Game 2 of the series. It was about as ugly of a double-double as it gets for Randolph, whose poor shooting set the tone in a game in which the Grizzlies shot 32.6 percent from the field. The Grizzlies have now been held under 75 points while taking blowout losses in both of the first two games of the series, so Randolph's mates aren't exactly helping in picking up much of the slack. With the Grizzlies' two other stars in Mike Conley (Achilles) and Marc Gasol (foot) out for the season, it appears Randolph is ill-equipped to serve as the team's go-to offensive option.
Randolph recorded six points (3-13 FG), five rebounds, and three assists to three turnovers in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 106-74 loss to the Spurs on Sunday. Randolph's struggles against San Antonio are pretty well-documented at this point. In the Grizzlies' 2013 playoff series versus the Spurs, Randolph averaged 11 points on 30.2 percent shooting. In his lone appearance against the Spurs during this year's regular season, he scored nine points (4-10 FG, 1-2 FT) to go with six rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes. Given that his game is typically mid-range and paint-oriented, it's understandable that Randolph has struggled against the Spurs' outstanding size and interior defense. However, folks partaking in fantasy were likely hoping for quality counting stats given the absences of Marc Gasol (foot) and Mike Conley (Achilles).
Randolph tallied 24 points (11-21 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals over 26 minutes in Wednesday's season-ending 125-104 loss to the Warriors. The veteran big man was the offensive linchpin for a Grizzlies team that was no match for a Warriors squad shooting for a record-setting 73rd win. Randolph's scoring total was his second best of April, and represented the third time over the final eight games that he eclipsed the 20-point mark. With both Mike Conley (Achilles) and Marc Gasol (foot) out for the postseason, it will be up to the 15-year veteran to continue carrying the team's offensive load on his shoulders. Randolph wrapped up the campaign with averages of 15.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.3 blocks across 29.6 minutes per game.
Randolph turned in 27 points (10-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, and two steals across 35 minutes during the Grizzlies' 108-92 victory versus the Bulls on Tuesday. Against a Bulls team with hardly any healthy big men, Randolph took over inside the paint. If the Grizzlies are going to make the playoffs this year despite injuries to Marc Gasol (foot) and Mike Conley (Achilles), Randolph must continue to produce. He is also the unquestioned top dog offense, so he should be an excellent source of counting stats over the final four games.
