MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Grizzlies tip off Game 2 of their NBA Western Conference Second Round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. at FedExForum.
The Grizzlies are behind in the series 0-1, after a heart-wrenching loss to the Warriors Sunday.
Game 1 between the Grizzlies and the Warriors showed that the results of the 1-on-1 scoring competition between Memphis’ Ja Morant and Golden State's Stephen Curry doesn’t mean their team will win the game or their Western Conference semifinal. Supporting casts are crucial at this stage of the NBA postseason.
Jaren Jackson Jr. had a playoff career-high 33 points in his second straight double-double. He also matched his season high with six 3-pointers. When the fourth overall draft pick in 2018 plays like that, Grizzlies' teammate Kyle Anderson said, there's not a lot of teams that can beat them.
“We need him on the floor,” Anderson said of Jackson on Monday. "That's tough. We need those type of performances out of him.”
Brandon Clarke has also scored in double figures each of the first seven games coming off the bench for Memphis.
Tickets for Tuesday
As of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, the Grizzlies said limited tickets for Game 2 are available by going online to grizzlies.com/memthis or by calling 1-800-4NBA-TIX.
