Jonas Valanciunas hit 9-of-10 shots and 9-of-13 free throws on his way to 27 points, 16 rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's tough 120-115 loss to the Magic.
While it may be mildly surprising that neither of those numbers are a season high, he posted even better numbers in his last game when he had 27 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks in his previous game on Saturday. He's crushing right now and is a big reason the Grizzlies opened a 17-point lead in tonight's game, but they folded up shop down the stretch and lost by five. The loss leaves the Grizzlies 6.5 games behind the No. 8 Mavericks and 3.5 games ahead of the Pelicans and Kings, who are closely trailed by the Blaers and Spurs. The Western race for No. 8 is likely going down to the wire. Mar 10 10:38 pm (EST)
