Memphis Grizzlies Shutdown Dallas Mavericks, 108-94

3 months ago
The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Dallas Mavericks 108-94 tonight at the American Airlines Center. The Grizzlies were coming off a win over the Utah Jazz after breaking a four-game losing streak.

The issue for the Mavs tonight was the absence of Luka Doncic. Luka did not play tonight, but not due to that nagging wrist injury; instead, he welcomed his first child today.

Luka ranks third in the NBA for points per game at 31, which is tough to replace when he is gone. The Mavs looked to Kyrie Irving to step up today, but it was not his night. Kyrie only had 10 points. The offensive leader tonight was Grant Williams with 16 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Dallas Mavericks look to bounce back tomorrow when they take on the Thunder at 8:00 p.m. at the American Airlines Center.
