Suns Remain Hot, LaMelo Shines In Washington And Jackson Emerges As A Grizz Hero

On Monday, the NBA had a busy day, which provided us with much to speak about. We’ll start with the Phoenix Suns, who have been on a tear lately. They’ve now won 13 games in a row and have a 14-3 record after a 115-111 triumph over the San Antonio Spurs that wasn’t as close as the score suggests. Deandre Ayton recorded a double-double with 21 points and 14 rebounds in the win, while Devin Booker had 23 points.

Elsewhere, LaMelo Ball was showing out for the Charlotte Hornets as they moved to 9-8 with a 109-103 win in Washington over the Wizards. Ball did a little bit of everything as he finished the contest with 28 points and 13 rebounds. He also dished out seven assists in the outing. Terry Rozier was also big for the Hornets, making eight three-pointers in a 32-point display. And finally, we’ll finish up with Jaren Jackson, Jr. You might be asking who that is, but if you are a fan of the Memphis Grizzlies you won’t be today after he was the hero in a 119-118 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday. Jackson won a tip-off at mid-court with 13 seconds to go before he nailed a three-pointer with five seconds to go to help his team bounce back after a 43-point mauling at the hands of the Timberwolves. He finished with 26 points while Ja Morant had 32 and Desmond Bane added 28 in the thriller.
