The Memphis Grizzlies are doing something right.

The Grizzlies on Monday dominated the San Antonio Spurs, 133-102, in a road game, extending their winning streak to seven games. Nine different Memphis players scored in double-digits, a record for the team.

“They are continuing to understand that being unselfish as a team is going to set you up for success as an individual and the team up for success,” Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins told The Associated Press.

Gorgui Dieng led Memphis with 19 points, followed by Brandon Clarke’s 18. Tyus Jones notched a double-double, scoring 11 points and dishing out 14 assists.

De’Anthony Melton and Kyle Anderson each scored 17 points. Grizzlies young sensation Ja Morant recorded 13 points and eight assists.

The win concluded a two-game series sweep for Memphis over San Antonio. The Grizzlies led 33-31 at the end of the first quarter, then outscored the Spurs 36-22 in the second period to lead 69-53 by halftime.

The Grizzlies were set for another road contest Tuesday, facing the Indiana Pacers at 8 p.m. EST.
