The Wizards are rolling right now and a big reason why is because they are getting peak Kristaps Porzingis. nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…11:28 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Kristaps Porzingis is settling into his role nicely in Washington. He’s changed his shooting routine, is enjoying his favorite pastimes… and knocking down three’s. washingtonpost.com/sports/2022/11…10:55 PM

The Wizards beat the Grizzlies for their 4th straight win, as Kristaps Porzingis and Deni Avdija led the way on another big night for the offense.

I asked Monte Morris what it meant for him to get the defensive belt tonight. He was all smiles with his answer.

Kyle Kuzma @kylekuzma
4 in a row for the wiz🤞🏽 – 9:21 PM
Wayne Cole @waynec0le
Deni Avdija postgame said God didn’t let him break his career high to keep him humble; he finished with 21 and missed two FTs to break it. – 9:18 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Monte Morris started laughing when asked about winning the Wizards’ defensive belt tonight.
“I be tryin’ out there man, there are some big dudes… I was just happy they considered a lil’ fella like me.” – 9:06 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Not often you’re going to see a team shoot better from 3 than they do in the paint, but the Wizards did it Sunday.
44.7% inside and 47.5% from beyond the arc.
Still not enough offense from Memphis to get it done. – 8:38 PM
Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
Darius Garland has a new career-high, with 49 points. That also ties an NBA season-high with Ja Morant.
His 10 made threes tonight are an NBA season-high. – 8:34 PM
David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Wizards win their fourth straight, beating the Ja- and Bane-less Grizzles 102-92. Washington goes 19-40 on 3s, finally getting modern-level volume the last couple of games from deep. – 8:28 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
Porzingis tonight:
25 PTS
6 REB
2 STL
2 BLK
6-10 3P
Averaging 21/8 on 49/39/81% this season. pic.twitter.com/6NWSI0KF228:28 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Beating the Wizards without Ja Morant and Desmond Bane was already a tough task. It got even tougher as Washington drilled 19 3-pointers on 48% shooting.
Final: Washington 102 Memphis 92
The Grizzlies are 9-5
commercialappeal.com/story/sports/n…8:28 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
With their victory tonight, the Washington Wizards improved to 8-6. It marks the fourth time in the last 17 seasons (including this one) that the Wizards have had a winning record through the first 14 games of a season. – 8:27 PM

The Wizards beat the shorthanded Grizzlies 102-92, and that’s the fourth straight win for the Wiz. They’re 8-6 now.
Porzingis: 25p
Avdija: 21p
Kuzma: 9p,11r
The Wiz had a new season high 19 three’s — 24 hours after setting a season high w/ 16 3’s vs. Utah. – 8:26 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Jordan Goodwin played the final 16 minutes, 50 seconds, in yet another sign of Wes Unseld Jr.’s growing trust in him. Goodwin finished with 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal. – 8:26 PM

Wizards beat the Grizzlies, 102-92. That’s 4 straight. They are 8-6. – 8:24 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Time and score. Time and score. The Wizards were up 100-90 when Deni Avdija drove and attempted a shot with 12 seconds left on the shot block. No need to take that shot. He was fouled and missed the two ensuing free throws. – 8:16 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Deni Avdija rightfully frustrated with a weak offensive foul call where Tyus Jones flopped, but Kyle Kuzma correctly says get back on defense for the next possession. – 8:12 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Steven Adams has tied Ja Morant for 22nd on the Grizzlies All-Time rebounds list with 908. – 8:11 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
The Wizards are shooting 38.5% on 2-point shots and 48.6% on 3-point shots, which makes total sense. – 8:04 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
One day after setting a new season-high for 3s vs. the Jazz, the Wizards have set a new season-high vs. the Grizzlies. 18 and counting. – 8:01 PM

THAT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL BASKETBALL. pic.twitter.com/dDXnnpjSAc8:00 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
A key hustle play just occurred. Kyle Kuzma missed a 3, and Jordan Goodwin went for an offensive rebound — and missed. When the Grizzlies attempted a shot near the hoop on the other end, Goodwin hustled back into the play and blocked a shot. Will Barton then scored on a dunk. – 7:59 PM
