CHICAGO — Packing for a road trip can be a chore. Packing for a 7-game road trip in the NBA can daunting. The Memphis Grizzlies started their longest road trip in franchise history with a win against the Chicago Bulls 126-115 Friday night in the United Center.

Dillon Brooks led the Grizzlies --and all scorers-- with 32 points. Ja Morant had 15 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists, while Jonas Valanciunas had a rare non double-double game, but he added 16 points and 7 rebounds.

Memphis now sits two games above .500 at 28-26. The Grizzlies second game of their historic 7-game road trip is Saturday night against the Central Division-leading Milwaukee Bucks.
