|De'Anthony Melton: Explodes for season-high 23 points|
Melton had 23 points (8-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 132-120 victory over Brooklyn.
The Scoop: Ja Morant (knee) has missed three of the Grizzlies' past four games, and Melton has come off the bench and scored in double figures in each of Morant's absences, including notching a season-high 23 points on Wednesday. Over his last four games, the fourth-year wing is shooting 57.7 percent from three on 6.5 attempts per game. Melton will look to stay hot against the Pacers Thursday.
