The Memphis Grizzlies managed to snap their recent four-game losing-streak Wednesday evening, as they downed the Utah Jazz by a commanding final score of 105-91.

Aside from it being their first triumph in nearly two weeks, the outing also served as the club's first home win of the season which, naturally, resulted in an outpouring of love and joy from the bevy of fans in attendance at FedEx Forum.

Following the contest, star big man Jaren Jackson Jr. discussed in a press conference the innate affinity he has for such a reaction from the crowd and the arena as a whole, highlighting the specific actions that take place during such an occasion.

However, even while making his comments of gratitude he would note that, in the end, this win shouldn't be celebrated as something new for the Grizzlies, and capped off his presser by predicting that more showings such as this could soon follow.

Jaren Jackson Jr. predicts better days are ahead for Memphis Grizzlies

"We've been here before, you know, during the streaks and during all those times popping, flicks all that stuff. Makes you appreciate that a little bit more and makes you appreciate this win too but there's totally more to do and there's more coming for sure. It's going to be a good next month."

Aside from the possible momentum created by their triumphant win over the Jazz, Jackson Jr.'s closing prediction of December being a "good" month is likely influenced by the fact that superstar Ja Morant will be eligible to return from his current 25-game suspension on the 23 for a road tilt against the Atlanta Hawks.

Regardless of this storyline, however, the Grizzlies find themselves heading into the new month on the right foot after such a dominant win, and their stud power forward played a major role in this being the case.

In 24 minutes played, JJJ dropped a game-high 20 points to go along with 6 boards, 1 assist, 1 steal, and a whopping 6 blocks and finished with the second-best plus-minus rating at +14.

Hopefully, the star big, along with the rest of the squad, can continue to perform at this impressive level moving forward and have Morant come back right when things seem to be pointing up.

In Jackson Jr.'s eyes, this is all but guarenteed to be the case.
