Memphis Grizzlies are on a five-game losing streak after the loss to the Jazz 92-88.
Jazz played tough defense but missed chances, turnovers, and two major ejections cost the Grizzlies the game. On a positive note, Andrew Harrison had a great scoring night with 23 points.
Grizzlies Quick Hits:
Although Big Spain had a good night on both ends, he struggled from the field. His highlight play was the reverse one hand jam at the rim. He only shot 35 percent from the floor, 33 percent from deep, and made more than half of his free throws. He ended up with 20 points, five assists and six rebounds.
Harrison may have fouled out in the last few minutes in the forth quarter, but that did not stop him. He had a career-high 23 points. He took it to the Jazz defense getting to the rim and scoring from deep. Harrison also had two highlight blocks, two steals, four assists and one rebound.
A slow night offensively for Dillon Brooks but his three steals and tough defense made up for it. Still he only scored 11 points, grabbed six rebounds with one assist. Brooks was ejected on a questionable foul call.
Green was cleaning house on the offensive glass. His power two hand put back was the highlight of the night for the Grizzlies. His night ended with 11 points, seven rebounds, and one assist.

- Ivan Rabb played very limited minutes with four points, three rebounds, and one assists.
- The Grizzlies had less turnovers than the Jazz.
- Memphis had more foul calls including technicals and ejections of J.B. Bickerstaff and Dillion Brooks.
