De'Anthony Melton had an off night vs. the Magic on Friday with four points (1-of-8 FGs, 1-o-1 FTs), five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and a triple in 21 minutes.
The Grizzlies were missing Grayson Allen (left hand) which usually opens some minutes for Melton, as he’s been held back from a potential breakout due to Taylor Jenkins’ insistence on using a three-guard rotation between the two of them and Desmond Bane. With impressive per-minute upside across the board, streaming Melton for as long as Allen is out is normally the right call despite this dud. Apr 30 10:16 pm (EST)
