Winning has become synonymous with this Memphis Grizzlies team as they defeated the Los Angeles Clippers to a score of 135-109. Other than the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies dominated, especially in the third quarter.
This game was a great all-around win for Taylor Jenkins and his staff. No player on Memphis’ roster played more than 30 minutes, which is a luxury for any NBA team during this stretch of the season. Even the second unit played with the poise of starters and helped tremendously in the victory for the Grizzlies.
Before we get into the studs and duds on Memphis’ side, let’s give some recognition to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Tip of the hat to the Clippers
Fresh off a trade to acquire Norman Powell and Robert Covington, the Clippers are looking a bit different. Powell in his debut dropped 28 points but was held to just 16 by the Grizzlies defense. It was Isaiah Hartenstein who had the best performance on the Clippers.
Hartenstein who is currently having the best season of his career finished with 19 points and seven rebounds on 7-11 shooting from the field. He has steadily become Los Angeles’ best center offensively and continues to expand on his skill set each game.
His potential is bright in this league and his name will be in conversations among the best role players in the NBA. With that being said, let’s take a look at the studs and duds from the Memphis Grizzlies’ win against the Los Angeles Clippers.
