NBA: Grizzlies end Warriors unbeaten start to regular season

The Golden State Warriors had their unbeaten start to the NBA season ended with a 104-101 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies trailed by 19 points early in the second quarter but Ja Morant, who scored 30 points, inspired them to an overtime win. The loss was a first for the Warriors after four successive wins.

"We fought back, started locking in on the gameplan so we were able to go on a run and get the lead." said Morant. "I felt like we didn't come out ready to play. We allowed them to get comfortable and allowed them to get a big lead.

"But everyone knows the Grizzlies, man - we play to the end."

Stephen Curry was the top scorer for the Warriors with 36 points but struggled in the final quarter, while Golden State coach Steve Kerr lamented his team's 22 turnovers.

"We had a great first quarter, the ball was moving and then we just got a little crazy out there," said Kerr.

The Chicago Bulls also lost their unbeaten run as they suffered a 104-103 defeat by the New York Knicks.
