  • Grizzlies' Dillon Brooks: Scores 27 points in playoff exit

    Brooks went for 27 points (9-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal across 40 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Brooks was one of the Grizzlies' most consistent scoring threats during the series, and Game 5 was no exception, as he surpassed the 25-point mark for the third time in five games. Brooks scored at least 20 points in each game and finished the series averaging 25.8 points per contest while shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range. Overall, Brooks' stock has taken a relatively significant leap over the last few months, so he could have an inflated ADP when 2021-22 fantasy draft season rolls around.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Stellar effort in loss

    Morant produced 27 points (11-22 FG, 5-9 3Pt), 11 assists and seven rebounds across 40 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Morant ended just three rebounds away from putting up a triple-double but his efforts were not enough to avoid the Grizzlies' elimination in the first round. The second-year floor general played at a very high level throughout the series, ending with two double-doubles and scoring at least 23 points in each game, despite facing a far more experienced opponent. Morant ends the playoff stretch averaging 30.2 points, 8.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game in five appearances.

  • Grizzlies' Jonas Valanciunas: Decent output in playoff exit

    Valanciunas mustered 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six rebounds, two steals and an assist across 27 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Valanciunas produced three double-doubles and scored in double figures in all five games against Utah, but he had quite a few problems when dealing with Rudy Gobert and couldn't provide much resistance Wednesday night. Valanciunas still delivered decent numbers overall, averaging 15.0 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists across 33.2 minutes in the series.

  • Grizzlies' Ja Morant: Double-doubles in loss Monday

    Morant ended with 23 points (8-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 12 assists, six rebounds and one steal in 43 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to Utah.

    Morant continues to log heavy minutes for the Grizzlies as they lean heavily on their young point guard. While the future is bright for Morant, his lack of a reliable three-point shot remains a concern. With teams quickly adjusting to his style of play, he is going to need to expand his range should he wish to take his game to the next level. That said, he is still only 21 years of age and so time is absolutely on his side. Game 5 will be in Utah on Wednesday and knowing what we know about Morant, he is going to leave it all on the court as the Grizzlies look to extend the series.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Gets hot late in Game 4 loss

    Melton finished with 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to the Jazz.

    Melton saw key minutes down the stretch for the Grizzlies as he turned in easily his best performance of the postseason. As has been the story all season long, Melton's lack of playing time continues to be a source of frustration for onlookers, especially given his proven ability to impact a game. It's anyone's guess as to what his role might look like on Wednesday and so those playing DFS should certainly not rely on this as a true indicator of what is to come.

  • Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Aggressive performance Monday

    Jackson tallied 21 points (9-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to the Jazz.

    Jackson continues to look better with every game for the Grizzlies, turning in arguably his best performance since returning from a lengthy injury layoff. The lack of blocked shots is disappointing; however, he was second only to Ja Morant with 18 shot attempts, something he is going to need to do if we are to look ahead to next season. Now trailing 3-1 in the series, it would appear as though the Grizzlies' season is drawing to a close but you can rest assured they will be giving it their all on Wednesday when they look to extend things another game.
