Jonas Valanciunas and Ja Morant both posted triple-doubles during Thursday's 119-106 win over the Bucks.
JV finished with 26 points, 19 rebounds, 12 assists (career-high), two triples, one block and three turnovers while Morant contributed 12 points, 13 rebounds (career-high), 10 assists and six turnovers in Thursday's must-win game. This was the first time in franchise history that the Grizzlies had two players triple-double in the same game, and it was the first time this season that has happened in a non-overtime game. With the win, the Grizzlies secured a spot in the play-in tournament, where they will face either the Suns or Trail Blazers (depending on if Portland wins tonight). Aug 13 6:50 pm (EST)
