Morant, Grizzlies spoil Murray's record, top Spurs 118-110

SAN ANTONIO (AP) Ja Morant matched a season high with 41 points and the Memphis Grizzlies overcame Dejounte Murray's 14th career triple-double - which tied a Spurs franchise record - by beating San Antonio 118-110 on Wednesday night.

"We've got probably the most clutch performer in the game at our point guard position," Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. said of Morant "That does help, a little bit. At the end of the day, we all know collectively when it's time to really flip that switch and turn it on and get that 50-50 ball and gets loose balls and make those big-time shots."

Murray tied the game at 106 with a step-back 12-foot jumper that trickled into the basket with 4:52 remaining. The Grizzlies responded as they had all night, getting an offensive rebound that led to a 3-pointer by Jackson Jr. Memphis held the lead from there.
