Memphis Grizzlies take down Brooklyn Nets even with Ja Morant injured

The Grizzlies put up an amazing team performance against a Nets team that had both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

Oh My God! The Memphis Grizzlies are a special team. There are very few teams that can compete with the offensive arsenal that both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have. The 2 are some of the best offensive players we have ever seen in the NBA. Well for the Memphis Grizzlies it was no problem at all. Even without their superstar Ja Morant playing, the Grizzlies took care of business against the Nets despite great performances from Kyrie and Durant.

The Grizzlies played as a team and had 7 players scoring in double digits. While Steven Adams did not score in double digits he was great on the boards and had 11 rebounds and 5 assists. The team was led by 23 points from Desmond Bane and De’Anthony Melton who came off the bench. Dillon Brooks had 21 points and Tyus Jones had 16 points and 10 assists. Brandon Clarke had a double-double as well and had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jaren Jackson Jr (13 points) and Kyle Anderson (10 points) were the other 2 players in double digits.


The Nets were led by the offensive juggernauts that are Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Kyrie had 43 points and 8 assists to lead the Nets against the Grizzlies. His partner in crime, Kevin Durant had 35 points, 8 assists, and 11 rebounds. The problem for the Nets was that there was not much contribution from other players. Only Andre Drummond (15 points) and Bruce Brown (13 points) scored in double digits in addition to Kyrie and Durant.

A lot of credit has to go to Taylor Jenkins, the Head Coach of the Memphis Grizzlies. He has gotten his team to play basketball as a team and to rally around Ja Morant. Ja gets a lot of credit too for bringing the team together and not being an imposing leader. The team plays selfless basketball and roots for each other. They are a young team and if they can stay together, this team could win a championship in the next few years.
