|De'Anthony Melton: Continues to deliver defensively|
Melton finished with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block across 24 minutes in Saturday's 124-96 win over the Magic.
The Scoop: Melton has now recorded at least one steal in 12 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NBA. Though he doesn't have a path to more playing time while the Grizzlies are at close to full strength in the backcourt -- save for Dillon Brooks (ankle), who could return during the upcoming week -- Melton has put himself on the radar in 12-team leagues based on his recent play. Since the beginning of February, Melton is getting only 21.4 minutes per game over 12 outings, but he's chipped in across the board with averages of 10.8 points, 5.1 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.9 three-pointers, 1.8 steals and 0.4 blocks.
