Morant scores 38, Grizzlies knock off Jokic, Nuggets 122-118

DENVER (AP) Ja Morant scored 38 points and the Memphis Grizzlies overcame Nikola Jokic's fourth straight triple-double to beat the Denver Nuggets 122-118 on Friday night.

Morant scored on floaters, runners, fadeaways, 3-pointers, an emphatic alley-oop and driving layups while slicing through a variety of Nuggets defenders. He set a career-high with 23 points in the first half and finished 15 of 26 from the field.

"I was able to get to my spots on the floor, which I excel at," Morant said. "And once I get to my normal spots, it's pretty much buckets."
