The Memphis Grizzlies bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Philadelphia 76ers with a convincing 120-108 win against the New York Knicks. The swagger of this team was on full display, getting into the skin of the Knicks and thriving while doing so. Ja Morant challenging Mitchell Robinson—although unsuccessful—was just the cherry on top of displaying how fearless this team was tonight.
Memphis was in control of this game from the very jump. The Grizzlies’ largest deficit they faced was just a single point, while they were up as much as 19 at one point. This wasn’t a game that was led by Morant scoring a plethora of points but more so the team playing great basketball as a collective.
Although the Grizzlies made a statement in Madison Square Garden, let’s give some shine to the New York Knicks.
Tip of the hat to the New York Knicks
The Knicks haven’t had a season like they were expected to this season. Inconsistencies have played a huge part, however, today one of those inconsistent players tore up the Grizzlies defense in Evan Fournier.
The Frenchman finished with a game-high 30 points on 11-18 shooting from the field. It was mostly due to his shotmaking to why New York was able to close the gap late in the fourth. Maybe if the Knicks continued to seek him on offense the game could’ve been closer in the final moments.
That is enough about the opponent, let’s take a look at the studs and duds from the Memphis Grizzlies win against the New York Knicks.
