After thrilling win, Grizzlies refocus vs. Nuggets

The Memphis Grizzlies are in the rare position of having to avoid a letdown against one of the top teams in the league when they host the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night.

The Grizzlies are coming off one of their most emotional wins since their playoff days, when they celebrated Mike Conley's return with a festive night Friday that concluded in a 107-106 win over Utah.

The event, which honored one of the franchise's all-time greatest players, served as an unofficial passing of the torch from Conley to Ja Morant, who the Grizzlies took with the second pick in the draft in June.
