Jaren Jackson Jr scored 27 points to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to the franchise record for points and biggest win percentage in NBA history, 152-79 ahead of Thursday’s visit to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The previous NBA record for the largest winning streak was 68, by the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Miami Heat on December 17, 1991. Memphis’ previous record for a score of 144, was set in January 2007 in match against the Golden State Warriors.
The Grizzlies, the team with nine double-scorers, extended their winning streak to three. They surpassed the record despite the absence of their top scorer, Ja Morant, who was sidelined with a knee injury.
The Thunder have lost 8 games in a row and 10 lost 11 games in the past. Luguentz Dort scored the top 15 for Oklahoma City, without leading striker Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (concussion protocol).

DeRozan took 12/19 shots on the floor and 10/11 direct free kicks. Vucevic followed up a season-high 30-point performance in Chicago’s 133-119 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday by taking five of nine shots from three points against New York.
Julius Randle collected 30 points and 12 rebounds, while Alec Burks and Evan Fournier each added 16 for the Knicks, who have lost two games in a row and 10 of their past 16.
Spurs 114, Trail Blazers 83
Bryn Forbes led all scorers with 18 points when he visited San Antonio earlier and overtook Portland for his third consecutive peak win of the season.
Spurs have never taken the lead, accumulating a double-digit lead in the first quarter that they built up to 27 at the start of the third period. Doug McDermott returned from four games with a knee injury to score 16 points, and Dejounte Murray scored 15 points and delivered 13 assists.
