It wasn’t exactly vintage Vince Carter who showed up for Game 5 of the Grizzlies and Blazers, but he was a guy making some plays. He was diving on the floor at points, bringing some hustle (and nine points) to Memphis off the bench.
And he had one nice putback dunk off a Zach Randolph miss.
Carter helped spark the 99-93 Memphis win advancing them to the next round. The Grizzlies are going to need more — and more vintage — Carter in the next round against the Warriors.
