Game Recap

The Memphis Grizzlies fell to the Indiana Pacers 126-114 inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday night.

On a night where Jaren Jackson Jr. and Ja Morant starred, the Grizzlies were unable to slow down a hot Pacers team as Memphis’ two-game road winning streak would come to an end.

The Pacers got off to a strong start offensively as they ripped off a 19-6 run over 3:19 of play to take an early 34-24 lead. Brandon Clarke helped keep the Pacers within reach, despite their sharp shooting to start the game, as he finished the first quarter a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor for 11 points. The Pacers shot 72.7 percent from the floor in the first quarter (16-22 FG) as they held a 36-27 heading into the second quarter.

The Grizzlies trailed the Pacers 56-49 in late in the second before the Pacers would go on a 11-2 run to stretch their lead to 16 points. The Grizzlies were able to trim the Pacers lead down to 11 going into the break thanks to Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke combining for 25 points in the first half on 10-of-13 shooting. The Grizzlies trailed the Pacers 97-81 with 1:08 remaining in the third period before the Pacers exploded on a 15-2 run to give the Pacers their largest lead of the night at 29 points. The Grizzlies were impressive again on the offensive end of the floor as they racked up 13 three’s on 29 attempts (44.8 percent) and dished out 30 assists for the sixth time this season.

Despite the loss, Jaren Jackson Jr. put together a stellar performance, as he finished the night with a season-high 28 points, five rebounds and an assist, all while knocking down a career-high six three-pointers on eight attempts. This marked the second time this season Jackson has made four-or-more threes in back-to-back games, following a 4-for-7 performance from behind the arc vs. Los Angeles on 11/23/19. Over his last seven games Jackson has now shot 26-of-43 from behind the arc for a 60.5 percent clip. Ja Morant posted the second double-double of his career as he tallied 19 points and 10 assists while not committing a turnover. Morant is the first rookie to post a game of 15+ points, 10+ assists and 0 turnovers since Devin Booker on 3/12/16. Brandon Clarke entered the night ranked sixth in the NBA in field-goal percentage and he was superb from the field again tonight. The Grizzlies’ rookie finished the night 8-of-9 from the floor for 17 points and four rebounds.
