Warriors vs Grizzlies Highlights

Game Review

Lets break down the Warriors vs Grizzlies highlights from January 11th. The Warriors showed why they need Draymond Green back in the lineup tonight, as Jordan Poole was struggling and needed Draymond’s combination of points and defense. Poole registered a +/- of -17 due to him shooting 27% from the field. When Curry, Payton, and Klay weren’t on the court, the Warriors ran out of gas on offense and fell behind to the Grizzlies bench. Thanks to the Warriors poor shooting, they were constantly caught on the break and suffered against the explosiveness of Ja Morant.

Jaren Jackson’s Defense

Both offenses were capable of scoring in bursts, with the lead alternating in the 3rd quarter. The deciding factor late in the game was the defense of Jaren Jackson. He had two steals and 3 blocks late in the game that were critical to shutting down the Warriors rally. He was a physical presence throughout the game and even chipped in from the three point arc with a circus shot that bounced 6 feet in the air off the rim.

Tyus Jones’ Perfect Shooting

Offensive MVP of the night goes to Tyus Jones, who shot 5 of 5 from beyond the arc. Curry and Morant will both get their 30, but Jones’ off the bench performance gave the Grizzlies critical points to win the game. This comes as no surprise from the former Duke player, who has been steadily improving his three point percentage over the years. He is currently shooting 47% from three, a career record if he keeps it up all season.

Grizzlies Look Serious

The Grizzlies have now recently beat the Lakers, Clippers, Nets and Suns. They are going to be a top contender in the playoffs and a difficult team to stop. They’re physical, high flying, and tough rebounding. Bulls vs Grizzlies in the playoffs anyone? Ja Morant vs Zach Lavine sounds like the dunk-fest we all need.
