The fourth victory in a row at the National Basketball Association (NBA) has been credited to the Memphis Grizzlies (26/23) team, whose honor Jonas Valančiūnas.
“Grizzles” in the opponent’s territory 131:113 (29:34, 38:30, 43:23, 21:26) defeated the Atlanta Hawks (27/25) basketball players who had previously won four games in a row.
Lithuania played 26 minutes, scored 19 points (8/11 two-pointers, 1/2 three-pointers), rebounded 11 balls, made 4 assists, blocked the throw and broke the rules twice.
J.Valančiūnas grabbed at least 10 balls during the meeting for the 19th time in a row, which is the new record of the Memphis club.
Grizzlies had another player: Grayson Allen, who scored 30 points this time, was the best player of the season.
The hosts worked without John Collins, Clinto Capela and Danilo Gallinari, so the “grizzly” took advantage of that to win the battle under the baskets 54/42.
„Hawks“: Bogdan Bogdanovičius 24 (4/8 three-point, 6-point), Trae Young 14 (11th trans.), Onyeka Okongwu (6/12 two-point, 11-point), Kevin Huerter and Lou Williams after 13.
„Grizzlies“: Grayson Allen 30 (3/9 three-pointers), Jonas Valančiūnas and Ja Morantas (7th rep., 7th res.) After 19, Dillon Brooks 17 (3/5 three-pointers), Kyle Anderson 16 (3/5 three-point, 9 reps, 6 res).
