Typically the Grizzlies are a club that feasts in the paint as they lead the league in PIP scoring averaging 55.9 points per game. However, Minnesota packed the paint making a concerted effort to force the Grizzlies to score from the mid-range and perimeter.
The Grizzlies adapted taking the open shots they were afforded resulting in 39 attempts – – well above their typical game average of 30.2 perimeter shots.
The calculated risk Minnesota took was that the Grizzlies would miss but the opposite occurred with nine different players connecting from deep, on 19 of 39 attempts.
Grayson Allen (15), De’Anthony Melton (14), Xavier Tillman (12), Dillon Brooks (12), Ja Morant (11), Brandon Clarke (11), and Tyus Jones (11) all registered double-figure scores.
Justise Winslow missed the match Friday nursing a thigh injury and is listed as day-to-day. Jaren Jackson Jr. is nearing a return from the knee injury suffered last season.
After missing 10 games due to an injury incurred via a hyperextended leg the Sixers big man Joel Embiid made his triumphant return to the lineup. He helped his club gain victory and pull back even with the Nets for first in the East.
That the 76ers navigated so effectively without their big man was a sign of growth as they’d previously struggled (2-5) when their superstar missed games. The 76ers were an efficient 7-3 during his 10 game absence.
Back on the court, Embiid posted 24 points and eight rebounds shooting 6 of 14 but missed all four 3-point attempts. He sported a brace and large wrap that definitely affected his mobility.
Tobias Harris led the 76ers in scoring on Friday with 32 points. Ben Simmons and Shake Milton each scored 14 points while Seth Curry chipped in with 13 points.
No doubt Embiid had this match circled on this calendar versus rival Karl-Anthony Towns who always seems to bring out the best in the Sixers’ star.
This match was no different as the two centers mixed it up and were physical with each other with Embiid eventually collecting a flagrant 1.
Although he looked good in his return, the 76ers will work him back slowly which may mean he’ll miss this game or get fewer minutes.
Trade deadline arrival George Hill who underwent thumb surgery prior to being traded has been out since January 24th but participated in non-contact drills as he ramps up for a return.
