Quentin Grimes played the full 48 minutes alongside Brunson, and while he didn’t light up the scoreboard – he scored just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting – he was a plus 9 on the court and contributed a lot in different ways.
“Amazing. The things he brings to the game, a lot of it doesn’t show on the stat sheet, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes,” Brunson said of Grimes after the game. “When you have a guy like that on the court, you’re ready to do anything for him out there. Nothing but respect for him and he needs to rest so he can do it again.
