MALCOLM BROGDON

PG, Indiana Pacers

B+

After missing the last three games due to back spasms, Brogdon didn’t seem to skip a beat. Brogdon would break the ice and sink the first bucket for the Pacers with a jumper from long distance. That would set the tone for Brogdon for the rest of the evening. Brogdon was patient on the floor and allowed the game to come to him, something the entire roster has taken note of and implemented. Brogdon finished with 14 points, six rebounds, and eight assists.

JEREMY LAMB

SG, Indiana Pacers

B+

Lamb had a slow start to this game after a strong performance against the Magic. Unable to get into a rhythm shooting in the first half, Lamb impacted the game by being a distributor and finding open teammates. However, Lamb would come out strong in the second half and regroup from a shooting standpoint. Lamb would finish with 19.

T.J. WARREN

SF, Indiana Pacers

A

After a poor performance against the Magic, Warren redeemed himself and got back to his old ways. Being active on both sides of the floor led to scoring opportunities that Warren took full advantage of. Warren showcased his ability to score from any point on the floor which made him a tough matchup defensively for the Grizzlies. This was Warren’s sixth 20-point game of the year. Warren finished with 26 points.

DOMANTAS SABONIS

PF, Indiana Pacers

A

With his hands full defensively, Sabonis sought to get things going early on offense. Taking what the defense gave him, Sabonis got in rhythm from midrange and used that momentum to propel the other aspects of his game. Sabonis had yet another strong night rebounding, but that comes as no surprise. Sabonis also curtailed his turnover issue that became relevant in the team’s last game. In addition to having a strong night on the boards, Sabonis also dished out five assists. Another double-double for Sabonis, just another night on the job for the 23-year-old.

MYLES TURNER

C, Indiana Pacers

B+

Some may believe Turner isn’t performing up to standard, but his impact can be felt more than what’s on the stat sheet. Despite not a strong performance offensively, Turner showcased his ability to be an elite shot blocker. Turner defended the rim and placed his teammates in good positions defensively throughout the entire game. Turner only finished with seven points, but the big man had five blocks to keep the Grizzlies honest.
