Meanwhile, the revolving door of injuries continued to be in full swing. De’Anthony Melton, Justise Winslow, and Brandon Clarke made their returns to the rotation. However, Dillon Brooks (thigh soreness) and Jonas Valanciunas (concussion protocol) sat out in this one.

As the Grizzlies continue their 7-game road trip with a battle against the Denver Nuggets, could they extend it their run to 3-0? Could they manage MVP candidate Nikola Jokic without Jonas Valanciunas?

The Grizzlies battled back to close the 1st with a 35-27 lead.

Second Quarter

The second quarter started slow, as the Grizzlies only scored 5 points in the first 6 minutes of the game. However, they ultimately got nice production from outside from De’Anthony Melton, Grayson Allen, and Xavier Tillman in the quarter — as they combined for 5 three’s.

Third Quarter

The Grizzlies ripped off a 12-3 run within the first 3.25 minutes of the half, led by the offensive production of the rookies Tillman and Desmond Bane.

Denver inched closer behind the exquisite play of Nikola Jokic. Then Ja Morant turned in on to score 11 points in the quarter, relentlessly attacking the basket for easy buckets. They also got nice plays from Grayson Allen and John Konchar...


Fourth Quarter

The Grizzlies continued to get strong John Konchar minutes, as he had a tough finish inside and drilled a corner 3.

De’Anthony Melton also caught a body. It was fantastic:

The game got too close, as the Nuggets were chipping away at the lead. There was an excruciatingly-long replay review that ended in an out of bounds call being overturned to be the Nuggets ball. With 31 seconds left in the game, Jokic got the foul call and tied the game with 2 free throws.

The Grizzlies trapped Ja Morant on the final possession, leading to an Allen triple attempt and miss with Jokic closing out.



Ja Morant took over the extra period with 9 points to kick off the festivities, including a tough and-1 on Jokic.

Grayson Allen missed a dunk on Nikola Jokic in transition, then got the ball thrown at him by Campazzo out of bounds. You could question Allen’s decision, but there was a no-call. Will Barton hit a 3 to tie the game at 125 with 12 seconds left.

Ja Morant missed the wild floater to go to a 2nd overtime.
