Saturday evening, the Memphis Grizzlies added another game into their win column, as they bested the young and spry Spurs while on the road in San Antonio.
Coming away with a decisive 12-point triumph, Taylor Jenkins' squad took care of business and, in turn, moved themselves up the Western Conference standings, as they now rank as the 13 seed.
Of course, coming away victorious from their latest bout wound up proving to be quite a challenging task, as the Grizzlies had to overcome a 17-point deficit during the final two periods.
In the end, however, the club went on a 69-40 run during the second half and, ultimately, won by a final score of 120-108.
Following the contest, in an on-court interview star big man Jaren Jackson Jr. shed light on what "fueled" the team's comeback efforts
Jaren Jackson Jr. sounds off after Grizzlies comeback win vs Spurs
"We just thought about last year. We've been in holes before. Unfortunately we did it, we can't really do that. That's not acceptable. We knew that, we came out [in the second half] and got a dub."- Jaren Jackson Jr. on comeback efforts
Later on in his postgame chat, the tantalizing forward would send a message to fans, pundits, and the league as a whole regarding what could soon be to come for this Grizzlies team.
"This is what everybody does here. We've been stepping up for a long time. Make that change man. When it turns over it's going to be scary so keep on going."- Jaren Jackson Jr. on comeback meaning
On top of talking the talk, Jackson Jr. walked the walk with his performance against the Spurs, as he finished the night off with a sound stat line of 27 points, 5 boards, 1 steal, and 1 block.
Though his efficiency in the shooting department certainly left much to be desired (converted on a mere 35.0 percent of his attempts), his overall impact was on full display throughout his 26 minutes of action.
Even amid recent hardships and unfortunate happenings the Grizzlies still found a way to overcome adversity. Though they may only be 3-9 on the year, the tides seem to slowly be turning for this team and, once they figure things out, as Jackson noted, it's going to be scary.
