MADRID, November 28 (.) –
The Spanish power forward Santi Aldama was again a substitute in the victory (123-127) of the Memphis Grizzlies over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, in a duel in which Ja Morant was decisive again with a triple-double ‘.
The player from the Canary Islands touched 18 minutes on the court to add 7 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist, with 3/7 shooting from the field and a triple in three attempts. Precisely, Aldama made his debut as a starter against the Knicks a little over a month ago, in a duel in which he celebrated the victory and a ‘double-double’ (18 points and 11 rebounds).
However, this morning the most decisive player was once again Ja Morant and his 24 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists, the fifth ‘triple-double’ of his entire career. Morant, supported by Dillon Brooks (23 points) and Jaren Jackson Jr (21 points), led those from Tennessee making Jalen Brunson’s 30 points “useless” in the Knicks, the best of the locals.
Those from New York add their fourth loss in five games to place eleventh in the Eastern Conference, while Memphis celebrated its second consecutive win, the third in the last five duels, and is already third in the West.
