Grizzlies Grind To Eleven
On Thursday night, the Memphis Grizzlies extended their win streak to 11 games. While their star Ja Morant has carried a significant load during the season, the role players shouldered the the bulk of the scoring Thursday. Desmond Bane poured in 21 points, while Jaren Jackson Jr. chipped in with 20.
John Konchar posted a career night with 15 points and 17 rebounds as well. Memphis sits at 30-14, good enough for 3rd overall currently in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves have now lost back to back road games, pushing them into the 9 seed overall in the West.
Memphis’ statement before the All-Star break has been loud and clear. They believe they can challenge the Suns and the Warriors to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals…time will tell if their play will remain consistent as the season carries on.
