Memphis Grizzlies forward Vince Carter found himself some extra playing time in Tuesday night's 116-80 blowout loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The man once revered as ‘Half-Man, Half-Amazing' had five points on 2-of-7 shooting and reached the 24,000 career-points mark on a floater in the lane during the third quarter.
Vince Carter became the 24th player to reach the 24,000-point milestone and will need 50 games at his current 7.8 points-per-game pace to surpass Allen Iverson for 23rd on the all-time scoring list.
With that field goal, @mrvincecarter15 has become the 24th player in @NBA history to reach 24,000 points. Congrats, Vince! pic.twitter.com/Bxm6YLg4Z5

“I plan on using him all year in different ways,” Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale told the Associated Press.
The 39-year-old also played in his 1,278th game, tying him with A.C. Green for 25th on the all-time list.
