|De'Anthony Melton: Plays well in Morant's absence|
Melton supplied 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds, six assists and three steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 135-102 victory over the Pacers.
The Scoop: Melton saw extended run due to Ja Morant's (back) absence and the blowout win, leading to a strong performance. He matched his season-high six assists and came up just four points shy of matching his season-high 22, so it was one of his better all-around efforts of the campaign, especially when factoring in the three steals.
