Grizzlies rout Mavericks without Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr.

Even without stars Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., the Memphis Grizzlies routed the Dallas Mavericks 120-103 Tuesday night on the road at American Airlines Center in Dallas.

A day after announcing that Morant would miss the rest of the season due to a torn labrum, the Grizzlies came out firing on all cylinders. From start to finish, Memphis looked like the better team, shooting 48% from the field, 38% from three-point range and 86% from the charity stripe.

The Grizzlies dominated the boards too, grabbing 60 rebounds as a team compared to the Mavericks’ 41, while also having a plus-7 advantage in the assists department (27-20).

The Mavericks are relatively healthy and just had arguably their biggest win of the season against the West-leading Minnesota Timberwolves two nights ago, which is why this win is so impressive for Memphis.

Desmond Bane led the Grizzlies’ charge sans his star teammates with 32 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Marcus Smart filled in at point guard, contributing 23 points and knocking down 4 threes. The Grizzlies improve to 14-23 after their third-straight win, but they are still No. 13 in the Western Conference.

The Mavs' dynamic duo of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving were splendid, scoring 33 and 31 respectively, but the rest of the the team combined for 39 points as Dallas dropped to No. 7 place in the West at 22-16.
