Steven Adams recorded 16 rebounds during the first half tonight against Charlotte Hornets, setting a Memphis Grizzlies single-game franchise record and career-high for first-half rebounds.
Memphis led by 40 points early 4th quarter, after a Brandon Clarke layup with 10:21 left in the game.
Adams ended the game with 13 points, 19 rebounds, 4 assists, plus 2 steals as well as a pair of blocks. And he did all of these in just 22 minutes in FedExForum.
