Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Kenneth Lofton Jr Led the Thunder with 42 points (17-for-25 FG), 14 rebounds and a steal in Sunday’s 115-110 loss. On Saturday, Lofton signed a four-year deal after going undrafted and joining the Grizzlies on a two-way deal. He spent most of his rookie year in the J-League, but he got a chance to play a big role in the game and succeeded. Memphis already had the second-best record in the West, so they played with just six players in this game. Lofton was led by Zaire Williams, who added a 5/9/24 streak. Vince Williams (15 points) and David Rudy (14 points) also scored in double figures, but Williams shot 6-for-21 and 1-for-14 from deep and Rudy went 6-for-19. The Grizzlies will host the winner of the Lakers and Timberwolves in the first round of the playoffs.
