Kyle Anderson lead the team with 28 points, Dillon Brooks 24 points, Brandon Clarke 16 points and Jonas Valanciunas 14 points to beat Brooklyn Nets without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Caris Levert made 28 points, Chris Chiozza 14 points, Timothe Luwawu Cabarrot 21 points, Joe Harris 14 points and Jarret Allen 8 points 15 rebounds. Ja Morant made 7 points only with 13 minutes playing time and DeAndre Jordan 4 points and 9 rebounds.
Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies hit the road for an intriguing cross-conference matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. The Grizzlies are 0-2 so far this season, with the Nets sitting at 2-1 after a road loss to the Charlotte Hornets last Sunday. While Morant leads the way for Memphis, Brooklyn is keyed by the superstar duo of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. ET at Barclays Center. William Hill Sportsbook lists Brooklyn as a seven-point home favorite, while the over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 234.5 in the latest Nets vs. Grizzlies odds.
