In a lost season for the Grizzlies Andrew Harrison is Playing Well

With the all-star break quickly approaching the Memphis Grizzlies season has gone less than expected. Sitting at 12th place in the Western Conference with a record of 18-34 to go along with a season-ending injury to All-Star guard Mike Conley the Grizzlies don’t have much to play for.

One silver lining to a lost season comes in the form of extended playing time for the Grizzlies young players, Andrew Harrison, Dillion Brooks, and Ivan Rabb in particular.

The former Kentucky point guard has turned it up in recent weeks, beginning the month of February with two good games against the Pistons and Raptors averaging 18 points, 8 assists, and 4 rebounds in those contests.

Harrison’s play against the Pistons earned himself the Grizzlies #TrophyGame award:

Harrison has consistently averaged over 20 minutes a game this season but that number will continue to grow as Harrison has begun playing over 30 minutes a night.

It’s great to see a former Cat fight through adversity to achieve their dreams, keep it up Andrew!

    I’ve enjoyed watching him play many a game with the Grizzlies. Reminds me how little most UK fans actually know despite whatever Joe Announcer says. Ironically, one reason I enjoy it is his grumpy, old man personality. He would fit in well with his critics in that respect.

    Andrew fell into the right situation in Memphis. He’s a smart, gritty, long point guard who can shoot it a little better than many people expected. He’s not crazy athletic but he’s strong and finishes really well at the basket. Has definitely worked hard to find a home in The Association. Well deserved.
