BBNBA: Andrew Harrison goes for career high


Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the Memphis Grizzlies may have dropped their home game against the Utah Jazz by the score of 92-88, but former Wildcat Andrew Harrison had a career night. Harrison scored a career best 23 points on 9 of 15 shooting, to go along with 4 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.

Harrison has come a long way since playing in the D-League and fighting for a roster spot in the beginning of his NBA career, to a full-time NBA starter for Memphis just a few years later. Take a look at some of Harrison’s highlights from last night.

In other BBNBA news from last night, the Minnesota Timberwolves fell short in an overtime thriller against the Cleveland Cavaliers, as LeBron James hit a fade-away jumper at the buzzer to win the game. This game actually set the NBA record for most combined threes made in a game between the two teams with 40 made threes. Kentucky’s own Karl-Anthony Towns was 6 of 6 from behind the arc. The previous record was 39, set by the Warriors and Mavericks in 2016.

Also, Tyler Ulis left last night’s Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs game early in the first quarter with back spasms and did not return, which is something to keep an eye on going forward.
