MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Utah Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies 96-88 but the game took a different turn with 3:55 left in the game.

Joe Ingles received a massive cut above his left eye and had to go to the bench. Jazz trainers worked on him but it was clear that Ingles needed stitches but he wanted to go back into the game. The trainers wrapped bandage around his head and Ingles was able to continue to play.

KSL Sports compiled a video to commemorate the moment when Ingles started sporting the headband.

Ingles finished with a team-high 19 points including a three-point shot to seal the win for the Jazz as they beat the Grizzlies for the first time in three tries this season.

KSL’s Jeremiah Jensen said it was only a matter of time before someone got hurt in the physical game between the Jazz and Grizzlies.

Utah Jazz rookie Grayson Allen responded to a tweet by the Jazz. Ingles responded to the rookie.

Jazz fan Lucas Falk tweeted about the toughness of Ingles.

The Utah Jazz Twitter page changed their profile picture to reflect the bandage.

Jazz President Steve Starks chimed in on Twitter.

Bleacher Report tweeted out the three-point shot that put the game out of reach.

After the game, Ingles received stitches. He told Jazz sideline reporter Kristen Kenney that he has never received stitches before he was cut in the Memphis game.

The Jazz will make their second stop of their five-game road trip in Dallas on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on AT&T SportsNet.
