Jonas Valanciunas made quick work of the Thunder on Thursday, hitting 9-of-11 shots for 21 points to go along with four boards and an assist in 28 minutes.
Valanciunas didn't fill out the stat sheet but nobody will complain about this sort of efficiency. JV continues to inch his way up the rankings and is now a top-75 player, and at this rate he'll be delivering on his top-50 promise before too long. There's a little bit of shutdown risk with the Grizzlies having Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke ready to take on huge roles but Big Science doesn't need massive minutes to deliver with his stat set.
