Starting at center over Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyombo did his job well by finishing with a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds.

After taking a win over the OKC Thunder, the Grizzlies fall to a much superior team which is the Denver Nuggets. Ja Morant was clicking with 16 points and eight assists while Jaren Jackson led the team in scoring with 20 points. Dillon Brooks was inserted to the starting lineup but he had a bad game shooting 2-of-10 from the field and committed six turnovers. Off the bench, it was Brandon Clarke and DeAnthony Melton that stepped up as they combined for 32 of the team’s 49 bench points. Still, the loss against the Grizzlies resulted from an interior defender that could stop Jokic as he registered a triple-double for the night. Fatigue will be a factor against the Hornets as they try to bounce back from the back-to-back losses.
