Grant registered 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks across 44 minutes during the Thunder's 118-115 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Tuesday.
Grant played the second-most minutes on the Thunder behind Russell Westbrook and parlayed them into another strong performance. The fifth-year big generated three straight double-digit scoring efforts to close out the series and averaged a solid 11.6 points and 5.6 rebounds overall across the five games. Those figures came in the wake of a regular season in which he posted career bests in multiple categories, and he'll look to build on those numbers during the 2019-20 campaign.
Grant contributed 18 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 33 minutes during the Thunder's 120-108 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.
Grant was a significant offensive component for the Thunder in their first win of the series, putting together a performance reminiscent of many he generated during a breakout regular season. It was the first double-digit scoring effort of the series for Grant, who'd only averaged 6.5 points through the first two games. Improved efficiency made all the difference Friday, as Grant's 85.7 percent success rate from the floor was a stark departure from his 3-for-15 showing in Games 1 and 2.
Grant chipped in eight points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four blocks, and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 104-99 Game 1 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Grant struggled offensively but made his presence felt on the defensive end. Given the team's lack of depth along the wing, Grant is likely to continue earning heavy minutes throughout the course of the playoffs.
Grant scored a season-high 28 points (11-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds and an assist in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 127-116 win over the Bucks.
With Paul George (shoulder) sidelined for the regular-season finale, Grant took full advantage of the extra shots available. The 25-year-old heads into the playoffs with some momentum, scoring in double digits in eight straight contests, but he'll be firmly in a supporting role as Russell Westbrook and James Harden do battle in a first-round clash between the Thunder and Rockets.
Grant tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two blocks over 30 minutes Sunday against the Timberwolves.
Grant put together an efficient shooting line and swatted two shots on the way to a winning effort. He's finished in double figures in the scoring column in five straight matchups and has also snagged five or more boards in three of those contests. Grant and the Thunder will face two dangerous opponents in the final two regular-season games of the season, although either team may elect to rest some of their usual starters in an effort to being the playoffs well rested.
