Line of the Night

Jeff Green (Memphis Grizzlies): 16 PTS (5-12 FG), 6 REB, 2 AST

The Jeff Green trade is paying dividends for the Grizz, who are 12-2 when the ex-Hoya is in the starting lineup. HIs 16 points, 11 points in the third, helped Memphis erase a seven-point Clippers lead on their way to a 3-point win in LA. Kyle Lowry's 22 against the Pelicans was not enough as fellow Villanova Wildcat Dante Cunningham and New Orleans came back from down 18 to beat the Raptors and stay in the race for a Western Conference playoff spot.
