Grizzlies Win 2 of 3 on Short Road Trip
The Memphis Grizzlies have continued their winning ways into the new week winning 2 of their last 3 games to get above .500.
The Grizzlies traveled to Dallas last Wednesday night to open a 3 game road swing and for a tilt with the Southwestern Division rival Dallas Mavericks. Memphis cruised to their second straight win with a 121-107 victory behind 6 Grizzlies in double figures led by Ja Morant's 21 points. Jaren Jackson Jr. chipped in 19 points and 6 rebounds, while role players Brandon Clarke and Tyus Jones pitched in 18 points and 19 points respectively off the bench.
Memphis's two-game win streak came to a screeching halt in Philadelphia as the 76ers defeated the Grizzlies 119-107. Morant chipped in 15 points and 6 assists, while Jonas Valanciunas collected a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
In a Sunday matinee in the nation's capital, the Grizzlies demonstrated remarkable resilience in a 106-99 win over the Wizards. Hampered by poor 3-point shooting, and trailing by as much as 12 in the second half, the Grizzlies scraped their way to a win. Morant was sensational, getting the first triple-double of his career with 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Morant's triple-double marks the first by a rookie during the 2019-2020 season.
The Grizzlies will host the Portland Trailblazers tonight at FedEx Forum for the final game before the NBA All-Star break.
