The Memphis Grizzlies have their swagger back after crushing the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night. It was the Grizzlies’ first win against a playoff team in over a month, and it was a much-needed boost of confidence for a team that had been struggling to find its footing.
The Grizzlies have been on a roller coaster ride this season, with wins and losses coming in bunches. But Wednesday’s victory was a reminder of the potential that this team has. Led by Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., the Grizzlies dominated the Nuggets from start to finish, outscoring them by 20 points in the first half and never looking back.
Morant was his usual self, finishing with 23 points and seven assists, while Jackson Jr. added 20 points. But it was the Grizzlies’ defense that really stood out, as they held the Nuggets to just 41.4 percent shooting from the field and forced 16 turnovers.
The win was the Grizzlies’ fourth in their last five games and it was a much-needed reminder that this team can compete with the best teams in the league. With the playoffs just around the corner, the Grizzlies will need to continue to build on this momentum if they want to make a deep run in the postseason.
The Grizzlies have their swagger back and it’s a welcome sight for a team that has been struggling to find consistency. Wednesday’s win was a reminder that the Grizzlies are a force to be reckoned with, and they will be looking to carry this momentum into the playoffs.
