Ja Morant, Grizzlies spoil Mike Conley’s return to the Forum



But as Mitchell turned, Solomon Hill stripped the ball away, giving Memphis its third straight win. While there was plenty of admiration from his former fan base, Conley struggled, scoring 15 points on 5-for-19 shooting from the field.

Mitchell recorded 29 points, nine rebounds and five assists for the Jazz, who had a 4-game winning streak halted.

The Jazz have made an 8-3 start to the season, and are expected to be one of the contending teams in the Western Conference.

Morant's inside basket gave Memphis a 107-105 lead.

Dillon Brooks scored 20 points and Kyle Anderson had 13, all in the first half, for Memphis. Gobert had 23 points and 17 rebounds, while Bojan Bogdanovic added 20 points. Mitchell and Bogdanovic's scoring abilities, particularly from beyond the arc, make them an exceptionally unsafe duo for a Grizzlies team that hasn't been great defending against long-range shots.

Conley received a rousing ovation when introduced before the game and got another extended hand four minutes into the contest when a tribute video was played inside the arena.
