Game Recap

The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 124-119 inside of Chesapeake Energy Arena on Wednesday night to improve to (3-1) on the preseason.

It was a tale of two halves for the Grizzlies on the offensive end of the floor, as the Grizzlies erased a fifteen-point first half deficit on their way to their third win of the preseason. After the team only shot only 16.7 percent from the three-point line in the first half, Dillon Brooks would jumpstart the Grizzlies offense, as he scored 23 of his game-high 30 points in the third quarter alone. The Grizzlies regular season franchise record for points in one quarter is 22, which has been done twice, most recently by Troy Daniels vs. Oklahoma City in 2016.

The Grizzlies trailed 59-52 at the halftime break before using a 19-5 run the third period to take control of the game. The Grizzlies outscored the Thunder 46-28 in the third period and were able to hold off Oklahoma City as the Thunder made a fourth quarter run. The Grizzlies’ 46-point outburst in the third quarter of tonight’s preseason contest matches the most the Grizzlies have scored in a single-quarter of a regular season game in franchise history (1/9/2007 vs. Los Angeles Lakers).

Jaren Jackson Jr. notched his first double-double of the preseason, combining for 18 points, 10 rebounds and three assists on the night. Tyus Jones drew his first start of the preseason and produced a complete game, finishing the night with 16 points, five rebounds and four assists.

The Thunder were led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who combined for 17 points, five rebounds and three assists. Devon Hall also pitched in 19 points off the bench for Oklahoma City as the Thunder dropped to 2-2 in the preseason.
