Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Plays 25 minutes off bench

Melton notched 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals across 25 minutes during Sunday's 117-116 loss to Golden State. After picking up a pair of DNP-CDs to conclude the Grizzlies' Round 1 series against Minnesota, Melton was thrust back into the rotation for a much larger role Sunday. His 25 minutes established a new playoff career high, as coach Taylor Jenkins rolled with Melton for long stretches instead of Tyus Jones, who saw only 12 minutes of action. The absence of Ziaire Williams (knee) may have also been a factor, though Williams was unavailable for Game 6 against Minnesota when Melton did not see the floor. How the minutes break down between Melton and Jones, in particular, will be worth monitoring as the series progresses.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Modest production in start

Melton provided 14 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, five assists and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 loss to Boston. Melton drew the start in the regular-season finale with Tyus Jones (hand) and Ja Morant (knee) sidelined. Melton was inefficient from the field but still scored in double figures for an 11th consecutive game and dished out at least five assists for the first time during that stretch. The fourth-year guard finished the regular season with averages of 10.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals in 22.7 minutes across 73 appearances -- all career highs.

The NBA's hottest shooter plays for the Memphis Grizzlies. His name is De'Anthony Melton

The game of basketball can be so simple. For De'Anthony Melton, all it took was a couple of minor adjustments for him to go from a steady role player to the NBA's hottest shooter. The streak started in Houston, when Melton got so hot for the Memphis Grizzlies that he turned down throwing the extra pass to a wide open Tyus Jones so he could splash another 3-pointer. Melton later said he didn't see Jones, even though the point...

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Pours in 21 points Wednesday

Melton accumulated 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Monday's 123-95 win over the Warriors.

The fourth-year guard added six rebounds, marking the third time in his past five contests he has reached that total. Melton has scored at least 20 points in three of his last four appearances following a 24-game stretch during which he didn't hit the 20-point mark a single time.

Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Plays well in Morant's absence

Melton supplied 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds, six assists and three steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 135-102 victory over the Pacers. Melton saw extended run due to Ja Morant's (back) absence and the blowout win, leading to a strong performance. He matched his season-high six assists and came up just four points shy of matching his season high 22, so it was one of his better all-around efforts of the campaign, especially when factoring in the three steals.
