|De'Anthony Melton: Modest production in start|
Melton provided 14 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, five assists and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 loss to Boston.
The Scoop: Melton drew the start in the regular-season finale with Tyus Jones (hand) and Ja Morant (knee) sidelined. Melton was inefficient from the field but still scored in double figures for an 11th consecutive game and dished out at least five assists for the first time during that stretch. The fourth-year guard finished the regular season with averages of 10.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals in 22.7 minutes across 73 appearances -- all career highs.
