With or without Ja Morant, the Grizzlies are scary | NBA


Despite the absences of their leader and titular pivot (at rest for a pain in the left thigh for the first, health protocol for the second), in addition to the exit on injury of Dillon Brooks, the Grizzlies easily defeated the Clippers in Los Angeles last night.

Also deprived of his coach Taylor Jenkins, the 14th tactician to observe a quarantine period, the Tennessee troop was able to count on a solid performance from Jaren Jackson Jr. (26 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists,) in the absence of the three starters, and secured an eighth straight win. This is the fifth time in the history of the club, and the first time since 2015 that the franchise has reached this plateau.

 » Our guys have remained united Said Brad Jones, interim coach awaiting the return of Taylor Jenkins, as the Grizzlies won their 11th game in 12 games.  » They believe in our system, they trust each other. It’s really cool when the players manage themselves and the coaches don’t need to. « 

Jaren Jackson Jr, the metronome

A strong man of his training, author of 10 points in a second quarter during which the Grizzlies reversed the course of the match (38-20), Jaren Jackson Jr. appreciated the reaction of his team following the great departure of the Clippers (36 points in the first quarter):  » They left us a little behind at the start. Then we woke up. We knew what we had to do to beat them. « 

In addition to his 26 points, the strong winger from Michigan State notably split a very high defensive score, with 5 blocks and 3 interceptions, to compensate for the absence of the usual goalkeeper of the Memphis racket, Steven Adams. Much to the delight of Brad Jones.

 » One of the cool things about Jaren is that he’s complete. «  appreciated the tactician.  » Steven Adams is an important part of our system, but without him Jaren spent more time in position 5. I really think it was beneficial for him offensively. It poses problems for opponents in this configuration. The Clippers have not found the solution to stop it. «
