Here are you player grades for Saturday’s Cavs-Grizzlies game. As always be sure to share yours below.
LeBron James: A+
His fourth quarter says it all. Another dominant night for him in a season where has been playing at an incredibly high level.
Kevin Love: B+
Offensively, Love was good all game. Defensively, Marc Gasol dominated him in the first half before Love took it up a notch in the second half and in crunch time.
J.R. Smith: A
Smith finished the night 6-8 from the field and 4-5 from three with some smart passing and good defense. Easily one of his best games of the season.
Jose Calderon: C
He played 14 minutes without being a totally liability, so that was good.
Jae Crowder: C
He had a few good defensive moments, but couldn’t make Memphis pay for putting Marc Gasol on him.
Dwyane Wade: A-
Another strong performance on both ends for Wade, who seems to be benefiting from playing fewer minutes and having less responsibility.
Jeff Green: B
Aside from LeBron, Green had the best highlight of the night.
Kyle Korver: A
Korver was 3-6 from three and had a team-best plus/minus of +16 in 32 minutes.
Channing Frye: B+
He only took (and missed) one three, but he was physical with Gasol and finished with six points and four rebounds.
Cedi Osman: B
Osman didn’t score and only had one rebounds in six minutes, but he was active on defense played hard.
