The Memphis Grizzlies expand on their winning ways with a dominant victory over the Washington Wizards with a score of 115-95. From beginning to end the game was controlled by Memphis. At no point in this game did Washington have the lead. This was a clinic on both ends of the ball and the Grizzlies asserted their dominance on a lesser opponent.

Nearly every statistical category was in favour of the Grizzlies and in a large margin. There aren’t just a couple of studs from this game but there were a few players that stood apart from the rest.

However, before we look into Memphis’ performance, let’s give some recognition to a player on the Wizards who had himself a game.

Tip of the hat to the Washington Wizards

Despite getting thrashed in embarrassing fashion, Kyle Kuzma was lighting it up on offense for the Grizzlies. He continues to have a stellar season as he finished with 30 points, eight rebounds, and three steals on 65 percent shooting from the field.

He was the only player in a Wizards uniform that was able to do anything against the Grizzlies’ stifling defense. It’s amazing to see how he continues to change the narrative of his career, which was presumed to be heading in a downward direction.

That’s enough spotlight for the opponent, let’s take a look at some studs and duds from the Memphis Grizzlies in this win against the Washington Wizards.
