Morant and the Grizzlies dominate the Hornets for a 4th consecutive victory

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Ja Morant had 23 points and eight assists past family and friends, Desmond Bane added 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Charlotte Hornets 131-107 Wednesday night for their fourth victory consecutive. .

Dillon Brooks scored 18 points and Jaren Jackson Jr. added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Grizzlies. Steven Adams had 15 rebounds for Memphis, which improved to 9-10 on the road.

LaMelo Ball had 23 points and 12 assists and Terry Rozier added 21 points for the Hornets, who have lost 14 of 17 games.

The Hornets were outclassed from the start.

Morant is a South Carolina native whose family lives about 90 minutes from Charlotte — and many of them go to the Spectrum Center to watch him play.

“A lot of people came out here and supported me, like you could hear when I was coming out of the tunnel or scoring,” Morant said. “It’s definitely love here. I’m happy every time I come back and it’s even better when you win.
