DALLAS — Desmond Bane scored a career-high 29 points, and the Memphis Grizzlies held on to beat the Dallas Mavericks 97-90 in their first game since setting an NBA record with a 73-point victory. 

Tyus Jones had 16 points and seven assists for the Grizzlies. They haven’t trailed at all while going 4-0 since star guard and leading scorer Ja Morant was sidelined with a left knee sprain. 

The Mavericks dropped to 0-4 this season without young sensation Luka Doncic. 

They were also missing his European sidekick, Kristaps Porzingis.
