Grizzlies FINAL: Memphis Grizzlies 102 - Toronto Raptors 99

Quote:
The Memphis Grizzlies picked up where they left off before the All-Star break by beating the defending NBA champions.

The Grizzlies will try to avoid a letdown when they visit the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.

Memphis closed the first half of the season with an 89-76 win over Atlantic Division-leading Philadelphia on Feb. 21, then came back from the All-Star break and defeated Dallas 96-85 on Wednesday.

Taking advantage of Dirk Nowitzki’s absence for much of the game, Marc Gasol had 22 points and 11 rebounds while Mike Conley added 20 points and 10 assists as the Grizzlies (20-15) won for the eighth time in 10 games.


“We all told each other before the break that when we came back, it was a sprint to the finish line,” Conley said. “Each game is going to be big, especially starting off against the defending champions. I thought we showed we were hungry and wanted to get off to a good start.”

After taking advantage of a stretch of nine of 11 at home, Memphis will play four of five on the road. The Grizzlies have lost six of eight while averaging 90.9 points away from FedEx Forum.

Gasol will try to help Memphis turn things around on the road. He has four double-doubles in his last five games overall, averaging 16.2 points and 11.8 rebounds.

Gasol may be in line for another big effort with Raptors big man Andrea Bargnani likely missing his 17th straight game with a calf injury. The Grizzlies aren’t about to offer up any sympathy to a team without its top scorer.

“This season is so condensed that every game means as much as the last,” Conley said. “Believe it or not, but the Toronto game is bigger than the Dallas win. Each game gets bigger and bigger, so we have to take it one game at a time.”

The Grizzlies have won five straight over the Raptors by an average of 7.2 points. Rudy Gay, who missed the first victory in that stretch, has averaged 21.4 points in his last five games against Toronto.

There is absolutely no way we win this game. I better not have jinxed it.

But seriously, they one of the best perimeter defences in the NBA with Conley and Allen, theyre going to pressure the hell out of Jose and Demar and I really doubt they pass the test. Then you have Gasol clogging the paint.

The only way we win is if we somehow create offence to hit a ton of 3s which I dont see happening.

I predict a blowout. We need one.

Grey & Gasol look like they are the same size & shap as eachother too bad grey doesn't play like Gasol...

I think grey should study Gasol's game...
