Jonas Valanciunas scored 27 points in 25 minutes on Friday night (3/8) in Memphis' 114-104 win over the Utah Jazz. Memphis Grizzlies Coach JB Bickerstaff said of Valanciunas, "It's nice to have a guy (like Valanciunas) where you can throw it to him, he can stay in the game, and he can get you a bucket." 

The pick-and-roll was certainly working between Valanciunas and Mike Conley. Conley had a double-double 28 points and 11 assists. Ivan Rabb had a nice evening scoring 15 points in 15 minutes of action. Delon Wright added 11 points.

Memphis' new pieces are certainly contributing, along with Ivan Rabb, Bruno Caboclo, and of course Mike Conley.

NEXT GAME: Sunday at 5:00 p.m. at FedExForum vs. Orlando Magic (pregame show at 4:30 p.m. on 92.9 FM ESPN)
