Grizzlies beat Suns 136-106, extend winning streak to 10

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Ja Morant scored 29 points, Desmond Bane added 28 and the Memphis Grizzlies extended their season-winning streak to 10 games with a 136-106 win over the injury-struggling Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

The Grizzlies can repeat their franchise-record 11-game winning streak from last season when they host Cleveland on Wednesday night

The Suns played without starters Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Paul missed his fifth straight game with a right hip injury. Booker has not played since Christmas due to a groin injury.

Mikal Bridges scored 21 points and Deandre Ayton added 18 for the Suns. Phoenix (21-24) lost for the ninth time in 10 games.

Jaren Jackson Jr. contributed 18 points and six blocks for the Grizzlies, who didn’t play Morant or Dillon Brooks in the fourth quarter as Memphis extended their lead to as much as 36 points.

Memphis also scored 130 or more points for the third straight game, matching last February’s franchise-record run.
