Trey Townsend (Forward) vs. Tyson Acuff (Guard)
Trey Townsend has been an essential player on Oakland Golden Grizzlies offense this year. Averaging 15.3 points over 34.7 minutes played per game and 7.6 rebound per game coupled with 43.1% field goal accuracy make him an unstoppable force on defense. Furthermore, his versatility as evidenced by 3.7 assists and 1.6 steals per game brings additional versatility into their playstyle.
