Bane and Ja come in the clutch to give the Grizzlies the dub.

Ja Morant and Bane both go for 32 a piece and the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 124-122 in overtime. The grizzlies win their seventh straight against the Spurs and the Spurs now have lost five straight.

1st Quarter

The grizzlies and the spurs both started out hot in the first as both teams weren't missing very many shots. The Grizzlies were shooting 5/8 from the three to end the 1st quarter behind 10 points from Ja. The 1st quarter was a quarter of runs as the grizzlies were up 34-22 late and the spurs went on a 12-4 run to end the quarter 38-32.

2nd Quarter

The Grizzlies prove once again why they are one of the worst second-quarter teams as when Ja hits the bench the whole team's morale just goes down. Devin Vassell stars in the second quarter as he was hitting mid-ranges and fadeaways left and right in the second quarter. When Ja came in the second quarter the team turned it around as they won the quarter 28-27 and the score was 66-59.

3rd Quarter

The spurs came out of the half-guns blazing and wouldn't miss until Jenkins called a timeout and the Grizz got back on track. The Grizzlies had no answer for the Spurs' triple as they were cooking from beyond the arc. The spurs ended the quarter on a 20-4 run as Josh Richardson hits a buzzer-beater after two offensive rebounds the Spurs go up going into the 4th 94-89.

4th Quarter

Neither team could really score this quarter as it was the lowest-scoring quarter in the whole game. The grizzlies came out hot and Bane showed why he should be an all-star as he tallied up 8 quick ones on the Spurs, but the spurs never gave up as the game came down to crunch time the Grizzlies tried pulling away but couldn't and with the final seconds ticking down Keldon Johnson missed a gimme to win it in the 4t so we went to OT tied at 112.


Once again the Grizzlies tried pulling away as they went up 9 really quickly. The Spurs never gave up though cutting the lead to one after a clock malfunction thanks to Pete, and Brevin telling the refs otherwise the refs would not have noticed and that game might've not gone our way but Ja missed one free throw and then hit the other to go up 2. With 5 seconds to go, the Spurs tried ending it as Keldon Johnson missed the game-winning 3 and the Grizzlies went on to win.

Game MVP: Desmond Bane
