The Grizzlies lost in Toronto after committing 19 costly turnovers and scoring only 12 points in the fourth quarter. Harrison and Gasol carried the load offensively.
Time for some grades.
Andrew Harrison: B+
16 points, 3 assists in 30 minutes (-5)
Harrison was the most solid Grizzlies player. After all the criticism he received last year, he has become a reliable point guard. He is directing the team well and shooting the three ball much better.
Marc Gasol: B
20 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists in 36 minutes (+2)
Gasol had a good all around game again but did not make a field goal in the fourth quarter, just when his team needed him the most.
James Ennis III: B
9 points, 5 rebounds in 21 minutes (-5)
Ennis is certainly a valuable player coming off the bench. He was active on both ends on the floor and revitalized the Grizzlies during their run in the third quarter.
Dillon Brooks: B-
12 points, 5 rebounds in 26 minutes (-9)
Brooks did a decent defensive job on DeRozan during the first half but had to sit for most of the second half due to foul trouble.
JaMychal Green: C+
11 points, 6 rebounds in 25 minutes (+1)
Not a bad game by Green but one should expect more from him considering that Conley, Parsons and Evans are out.
Wayne Selden Jr.: C-
8 points, 7 rebounds in 34 minutes (-7)
Selden lacks consistency. He combines great performances with poor showings. Despite his decision making is usually one of his strengths, he committed four careless turnovers. His long distance shot was not there against the Raptors.
Ivan Rabb: C-
2 points, 2 rebounds in 5 minutes (-6)
Rabb brought some energy in his few minutes of play.
Jarell Martin: D
4 points, 5 rebounds in 17 minutes (-8)
Martin went 0 for 5 from the floor and never found the rhythm against Toronto.
Deyonta Davis: D
2 points, 1 rebound in 19 minutes (-22)
Davis was a non-factor and struggled against the Raptors bigs.
Mario Chalmers: D
2 points, 4 assists in 18 minutes (-10)
Chalmers is on full tank mode. He had four turnovers and went 1 for 5 from the floor.
Ben McLemore: F
0 points, 2 turnovers in 3 forgettable minutes on the floor (-6)
