Chicago Bulls couldn’t beat Memphis Grizzlies and fell 119-106. Morant had another magical night in the National Basketball Association, but he also had a fight with Bradley – Playon99 News
These Memphis Grizzlies have two ways to play: very good or in steamroller mode. The team that gets all the flashes in this regular season won convincingly again and showed that their streak was not a matter of luck.
Against Chicago Bulls, the best team in the Eastern Conference according to their numbers, they took the second to overwhelm them at the FedEx Forum 119-106 in a game with much less pressure at the end than expected.
Desmond Bane and Ja Morant each scored 25 points to lead the way to victory number 12 in 13 games for a team that never tires of winning and plays with an intensity almost unbearable for its rivals.

In the middle of the Memphis party and with Ja Morant in Magic Johnson mode, Tony Bradley cut him off in a feint and didn’t let him go.
