Lance Stephenson scored 19 points on 8-of-21 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and one steal over 38 minutes in Thursday’s loss to the Bucks.
Stephenson’s backers should hope that the Grizzlies can win even one or two games to keep the playoff equation from becoming a factor. Right now they can afford to rest everybody because of their insane lead on the No. 8 seed, but that has dropped to 5.5 games over Utah with 13-14 games to play. 3-10 for Memphis and 10-4 for the Jazz would result in a tie and frankly we’re not sure who gets the tiebreaker. Point being — there’s a path for the Grizz to fall out of the playoffs and returning players would obviously hinder Born Ready’s rebirth.
