Game Recap

The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Charlotte Hornets 119-117 following a game-winning shot from Ja Morant with 0.7 seconds remaining on the clock. The win snapped a five-game losing streak to the Hornets and marked the first time Memphis has won back-to-back games on the road since March 15-16, 2017.

The Grizzlies offense was clicking on all cylinders as they jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first 2:14 of the game following a three-pointer from Dillon Brooks. Both offenses would trade blows throughout the night, but the most important stretch for the Grizzlies came after a 10-0 run by the Hornets late in the third quarter. Following a P.J. Washington slam with 3:10 remaining in the period, the Grizzlies responded with 10 straight points of their own. Marko Guduric helped spark the Grizzlies’ surge as he scored 11 of his career-high 17 points in the third quarter.

The Grizzlies kept their foot on the gas, eventually going on a 30-9 run to take a 109-100 lead with 6:14 remaining in the game. The Hornets would not go down quietly as they ripped off a 12-2 run to tie the game at 117 following a three-pointer from Devonte’ Graham with 23.4 seconds remaining. However, Ja Morant would not let his first career double-double go to waste as he connected on an acrobatic, left-handed layup to give the Grizzlies the lead and ultimately the victory at 119-117. Morant finished the night with 23 points and a career-high 11 assists while shooting 10-of-15 from the floor. With tonight’s performance, Morant surpassed Mike Conley as the youngest player in franchise history to record a points-assist double-double.

The Grizzlies continued their impressive ball-movement, racking up 32 assists on the night. This was the first time the Grizzlies have tallied 30+ assists in three consecutive games since Dec. 9-14, 1997. Jonas Valanciunas picked up his seventh double-double of the season with 18 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in only 23 minutes. Jaren Jackson Jr. added 16 points and six rebounds while shooting 5-of-9 from the field. Tonight marked the first time Jackson has made 4+ three-pointers in consecutive games for the first time in his career. The Grizzlies would connect on a season-high 17 three pointers on 35 attempts (48.6 percent) as they won consecutive games for the first time this season to improve to 4-7.

Charlotte’s offense was equally as impressive, connecting on 16 of their 37 three-point attempts. Their 43.2 percent clip from behind the arc marks the highest percentage a Grizzlies opponent has shot from three-point range this season. The Hornets were paced by Terry Rozier, who tied a career-high with 33 points while shooting 7-of-12 from three-point range. Malik Monk led all bench scorers with 20 points, eight rebounds and five assists as the Hornets fell to 4-7 on the season.
