Memphis Grizzlies forward Hakim Warrick has taken advantage of increased playing time since the team traded Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles lakers.
Checking out his recent games:
Feb. 12: Against the Kings, Warrick shot 10-of-16 for 24 points and 13 rebounds.
Feb. 13: Against the Sixers, Warrick shot 11-of-17 for 23 points and 8 rebounds.
Feb. 19: Against the Sonics, he shot 10-of-18 for 22 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocks.
Feb. 20: Against the Clippers, Warrick shot 8-of-14 for 20 points and 7 rebounds.
Feb. 22: Against the Mavericks, he shot just 5-of-15 but got to the line enough for 15 points and 9 rebounds.
Feb. 24: Against the Cavs, Warrick shot 8-of-15 for 21 points and 9 rebounds.
Feb. 26: Against the Suns, he shot 8-of-12 for 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Now the bad news. Warrick is barely getting any assists, literally just 1 or 2 per game. And the only game the Grizzlies won was that Feb. 13 game against the Sixers. They’ve lost every single other game, not only above, but since a January 26 win over the Clippers. They’ve lost 12 of 13.
Still, for Warrick as an individual player, it’s progress.
