Bane scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) to go with two assists, one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes in a 108-94 loss to the Lakers on Sunday. Bane scored eight points in the first half on 3-for-4 shooting in the opening quarter. The young guard has averaged 13.0 points per game in his last three since Ja Morant went down with an ankle injury last week, shooting 48.4 percent from the field. Bane made quick work in his time on the court, playing the least amount of minutes since opening night when the rookie played just 11 minutes. The 22-year-old saw scattered minutes the rest of the contest, finding some playing time in the third quarter, but residing on the bench until the game was out of reach for Memphis in the fourth.
Bane scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go with four rebounds and a steal across 32 minutes in a 126-107 loss to Boston on Wednesday. Bane did the bulk of his damage in the fourth quarter with the game already out of reach, scoring nine points in the final frame. The rookie showed promise as a bench guard in the preseason, averaging 9.3 points in 20.8 minutes per game in four showings. But with Ja Morant set to miss some time with an ankle injury, along with guard Grayson Allen going down Wednesday, Bane wil see more action than anticipated at the start of the season.
Bane compiled 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 22 minutes in Thursday's 128-106 win over the Hawks. The Grizzlies put their first-round pick to work right away in the preseason, and he's now logged two encouraging stints off the bench. The 6-6 TCU product is stuck behind Dillon Brooks on the depth chart, but he has enough size and speed to compete for a spot at the wing, where he has a better shot at significant contribution in his rookie season.
