Memphis Grizzlies score vs. Denver Nuggets: Live updates

It’s a clash of the Western Conference’s best Saturday as the Memphis Grizzlies host the Denver Nuggets at FedExForum.

The Nuggets (42-18) are in first place in the West, six games ahead of the second-place Grizzlies (35-23). It’s been a month since the Grizzlies had a marquee win over a top-four team in either conference, and they need one after Thursday’s collapse in losing to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Ja Morant had 35 points and 10 assists, but only two other Grizzlies scored in double figures.

The Grizzlies have won three consecutive games at home, but now that they’re in stretch of games against playoff contenders, they need to get right against a Nuggets team on a four-game win streak.

Meet the lifelong Memphis Grizzlies fan bringing his streetwear collection to FedExForum

There’s a photo Miles Thomas keeps on his phone. A reminder to never forget the child who inspired him to dream.

It’s a picture of Thomas at 4 years old smiling with his father, Joel, at a Memphis Grizzlies playoff game in 2005. For years when Miles Thomas pitched streetwear designs to the team, he used that photo to stay encouraged even when pitches went unheard.

“He would think this is so cool right now that I’m doing this,” Thomas said.

On Saturday, Thomas, who also goes by hippy, will feature his “Sec. 118” streetwear collection at FedExForum when the Grizzlies host the Denver Nuggets. It’s one of three collaborations the Grizzlies have done this month to spotlight local artists and designers as part of their 191 Collabs pilot program.

The collections will be featured exclusively in a pop-up shop in the Grand Lobby.

For Thomas, 22, it’s a dream come true as a lifelong Grizzlies fan. His father Joel got season tickets after the team moved from Vancouver ahead of the 2001-02 season. Some of Thomas’ earliest sports memories were watching Grizzlies games in Section 118, the inspiration for his collection’s name.

“Back then I thought was going to hoop ’cause I was playing basketball,” Thomas said. “I could tell you the exact stats. I was a walking encyclopedia with points per game and all that.”
