Morant has late burst, Grizzlies hold off Suns 114-109

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The night in Memphis started with a moment of silence for Kobe Bryant. It ended with players from both sides remembering the Los Angeles Lakers great for the good he brought to the game.

As for the game itself, Ja Morant scored 14 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to help the Memphis Grizzlies hold off the Phoenix Suns 114-109 on Sunday night for their second straight victory.

Playing hours after news that Bryant was killed in a helicopter accident, the Grizzlies won the opening tip and immediately took a 24-second shot clock violation. When the Suns took possession, they stayed in the backcourt for an 8-second violation - the 24 and 8 representing Bryant's two numbers during his NBA career. As the Memphis crowd rose in appreciation of Bryant, they began chanting "Kobe! Kobe!"
