Grizzlies Set Record In Win Against Thunder

In Thursday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, it's pretty safe to say that the Memphis Grizzlies played pretty well. They ended up beating OKC by a 152-79 final score. With that, they set an NBA record with the biggest win ever, as they won by a total of 73 points. 

The Grizzlies aren't necessarily viewed number one contenders, but they surely played like them last night. On the season, they now have a 12-10 and are currently fifth in the Western Conference. The Thunder, on the other hand, are 6-16 and 13th in the Western Conference. They also are 1-9 in their last ten games, so they have been struggling a lot. After a loss like this one, it's easy to think that their morale is at an all-time low.

What's rather intriguing about Memphis' win is there wasn't necessarily one player who completely dominated the game. Jaren Jackson Jr. led the team in points with 27 and then De'Anthony Melton was next behind with him 19. Overall, there was solid scoring from the lineup, as only three out of their 12 players had less than 10 points on the evening.

Nonetheless, we all should watch the Grizzlies closely from here. This could be the start of a big hot streak for them.
