Game of the Night
Plenty of games to choose from but the schedule capper in Los Angeles was quite the entertainer.
The young Grizzlies, led by Ja Morant's 28 points and eight assists, grabbed the road win courtesy of a clutch shot from Jaren Jackson Jr.

The shot helped them overcome a 41-point performance from Paul George. The game only had four lead changes and three ties but with both teams scrapping, it never got out of hand and remained close until the final minute.
