Marc Gasol was not the same offensive player he was a year ago through the start of this season. His points were down (14.9 per game), his shot attempts, his field goal percentage, pretty much every thing was down from a year ago.
He made up for that Tuesday night.
Gasol dropped a career-high 38 points, plus grabbed 13 board, had six assists and four blocks in the Grizzlies 113-104 victory over the Pelicans. Not Anthony Davis, nobody could slow him from New Orleans. Gasol’s 16 made free throws tied the Memphis franchise record for free throws made in a game.
