The Memphis Grizzlies followed a 56-win campaign by winning 51 more games in 2022-23, the first time the franchise posted consecutive 50-win seasons since logging three straight from 2012-15. In his fourth season, Ja Morant was named an All-Star for the second straight year after averaging 26.2 points, a career-high 5.9 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game. Morant became the franchise-leader in triple-doubles and his 22 fourth-quarter points against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of the first round were the most in a playoff quarter in franchise history. Jaren Jackson Jr. earned his second consecutive All-Defensive First Team selection and became the second player in franchise history to win NBA Defensive Player of the Year on the Grizzlies’ second-rated defensive unit. Jackson Jr. also led the league with 3.0 blocks per game while averaging a career-high 18.6 points. Dillon Brooks earned All-Defensive Second Team honors, making Memphis just one of two teams to feature multiple players on the all-defense squads. Desmond Bane averaged a career-best 21.5 points in his third season while shooting better than 40 percent from downtown for an offense that ranked ninth in the league in points per game. Bane commemorated his strong season by signing a five-year contract extension to remain in Memphis.
