The Grizzlies outlast the Los Angeles Clippers in their Crypto.com Arena

The Memphis Grizzlies had the right recipe against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. The game was played in Crypto.com Arena in California, but the crowd in the stands didn’t enjoy much of the game.

The Grizzlies won the match undisturbedly, 108-123. This was their eighth win in a row; a streak that began with a win over the Kings during Christmas. They went on to defeat some of the top teams in both Conferences, thus cementing their high status this season.

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in a huge disarray recently. The team from California is on a 3-9 run which dragged them down to 9th place in the West. The Clippers are still trying to figure out how to deal with the injuries in their roster as Kawhi Leonard, Nicolas Batum, Paul George, and Isaiah Hartenstein have been sidelined for a long time.

Terrance Mann and Reggie Jackson once again disappointed their fans with terrible performance against the Grizzlies. Both of them finished off with around 30% FGM which is terrible for their standards. Marcus Morris Sr. led the way for the Clippers with 29 points scored for 28 minutes of play. Ivica Zubac made his return for the team, while Nicolas Batum played his second game following his comeback.

Ja Morant missed the match for the Memphis Grizzlies which meant that Desmond Bane would have to be in charge once again. Fortunately for him, he got help from Jaren Jackson Jr., Tyus Jones, and Brandon Clarke. The Grizzlies’ center, Jackson Jr., was the most valuable player on the court with 26 points, 5 blocks, and 3 steals. Brandon Clarke ended up with a double-double 18 points and 15 rebounds.

Both teams are huge favorites to make the Playoffs this year, but the situation within the Clippers is far from impressive. They are currently 9th in the standings with 19 wins and 21 losses. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, sit in 4th place with a 27-14 record. They will surely look to snatch the Playoffs spot as soon as possible in order to get more time for experiments with the team.
