Jerami Grant had an incredibly efficient 16 points (7-for-8 FGs) to go with eight boards, one assist, three blocks and two threes in 44 minutes in Tuesday's close loss to the Blazers.
It was quite the fantasy line for Grant, though it will be his final one until October. The Thunder had a great shot at a win tonight, but the Blazers closed the game and series out in miracle fashion.

Jerami Grant made just 4-of-10 shots from the field on Sunday to finish with 11 points, nine rebounds, two assists, three triples and two steals in 34 minutes.
Grant's impact on the defensive end has been invaluable to the Thunder in this series and it was nice to see him active on the glass tonight, especially with Steven Adams being relatively quiet on that front with seven boards while adding six points, one assist, one steal and one block. Unfortunately for the Thunder, Portland's forwards, Maurice Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu outplayed and out-hustled them on both ends of the floor.
April 20, 2019, 12:36 amJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored a playoff career-high 18 points on 6-for-7 shooting also contributing four threes and two blocks in Friday's win over the Blazers.
Grant caught fire at the perfect time as the shooting woes that plagued Oklahoma City in the first two games disappeared on Friday night. He was one of five teammates to make two or more threes as Oklahoma City was able to cruise to a victory.

Jerami Grant disappeared in Game 2 on Tuesday, contributing just five points (1-of-7 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs)), four rebounds and a block in 30 minutes.
Grant missed all five of his 3-point attempts as well in what would be a theme for the Thunder yet again. They'll need more from their supporting cast (Dennis Schroder had seven points and two assists in 21 minutes) to win this series.
April 14, 2019, 6:50 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored eight points with four blocks in Sunday's 104-99 Game 1 loss to the Blazers.
Grant did his thing on defense in this one, but the Thunder as a whole could not get it done from behind the arc – Grant was 0-for-3. He's improved a lot this season, but will need to shoot better for the Thunder to win games, as they don't have many sharpshooters as is.

Jerami Grant scored 28 points on 11-of-20 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and one assist over 43 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Bucks.
Grant landed on a lot of Hoop Ball rosters and he brought back top 50-70 value (9/8 cat) on the year. His free throw shooting improved from 67.5 percent to 70.8 percent year over year and he might eventually see a challenge to the type of workload he had this year (32.7 mpg, 80 games), so maybe continued improvement in the former can help offset the latter issue. He'll get pub for Waiver Wire Pickup of the Year but he should've been owned in competitive formats, and he's more of a best value pick candidate. Grant didn't waver at all this season.
March 27, 2019, 11:39 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant put up 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five triples, one steal and three blocks in 37 minutes in a win over the Pacers on Wednesday.
Aside from the cash counters, Grant also added seven rebounds and four assists to the fantastic stat-line. Grant has never finished a season inside the top-160 value and this season he is a top-80 option, so he is definitely one of the most improved players in the NBA. The Thunder will need him to play his best basketball to avoid finishing as the eighth seed in the West as opposed to the fifth or sixth seed.
March 25, 2019, 10:22 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding two rebounds and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Grant was invisible tonight on both ends of the floor, but he's still too good to give up on in head-to-head formats especially since he plays three more times this week.
March 22, 2019, 10:26 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant responded nicely from Wednesday's 3-for-14 dud, posting 19 points and a career-high five 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Raptors.
The shoe was on the other foot in the rematch here, as tonight was the night for OKC to rain down triples. One of the worst longball teams in the league, the Thunder managed to hit 20-of-43 from behind the arc tonight. Grant didn't do much else with just three rebounds and two assists before fouling out after 36 minutes, but his career night from deep helped push the team to a much-needed win. Expect more typical production going forward.
March 21, 2019, 1:07 amJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant finished Wednesday's home loss with nine points, 14 rebounds, two assists and a block while going a horrific 3-for-14 from the field.
Grant just didn't have it tonight, though he was able to use his athleticism to put in a nice night on the glass that included six offensive boards. This wasn't the follow-up that fantasy owners were hoping for after he went for 27 & 10 on Monday but hopefully he'll keep the same energy and get some better bounces in Friday's rematch in Toronto.
March 18, 2019, 10:28 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant erupted for 27 points on Monday, while adding 10 rebounds, an assist, three blocks and a 3-pointer.
Grant's offense went missing over the past two weeks, but he bounced back in a huge way. He went 10-for-16 from the floor and 6-for-7 at the line. Part of tonight's line can be attributed to Russell Westbrook (suspension) sitting which allowed a lot more usage on offense, but Grant has produced on offense even with Westbrook playing so we're hoping he can build off of tonight's game.
March 14, 2019, 9:35 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored three points on 1-of-4 shooting but added two rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks on Thursday.
Grant's offense has taken a bit of a nosedive over the past two weeks and tonight was no exception. He didn't touch the ball much and even when he did there wasn't much he was doing with it, but he brought the defense in a big way tonight to make up for it. With how the Thunder offense is shaking out you'll want to temper your expectations on Grant's numbers on that end but the defense should remain steady.
March 11, 2019, 11:40 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with a 3-pointer, five boards, two assists and two steals on Monday.
Grant has had some trouble putting up the same numbers he had before his injury but tonight was a step in the right direction. The shooting will come and go but the defensive numbers are what we're looking for. He's healthy and the minutes are consistent so the stocks will eventually come.
February 28, 2019, 10:55 pmJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant scored 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting while adding six boards, a block and two triples on Thursday.
Grant did his best to fill in the big shoes of Paul George (shoulder soreness) but his increased focus on offense took away from his defensive production. George's injury isn't considered serious so we can expect Grant to go back to his Swiss Army Knife stat set soon.
February 27, 2019, 1:25 amJerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder
Jerami Grant put up a great stat line in Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets, providing 21 points on 9-of 12 shooting, five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 34 minutes.
Grant continues to fill it up, providing top-90 value in 8-cat leagues with top-60 value in 9-cat leagues for the season.
