Already known for his air game, defending Dunk champ Zach Lavine has been showing off his all-around offensive game more often. Scoring 28 points with a career-high six 3-pointers, in a comeback win over the injury-plagued Grizzlies. Elite defender Tony Allen gave the sophomore guard credit for sparking his squad.
“The kid, Zach LaVine, got going early and caught a rhythm,” Allen said. “Those guys followed his lead. Their rotation, one through nine, starting running away with the lead and we weren’t able to recover.”
