MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis Grizzlies were at full strength after news broke Tuesday afternoon that Jonas Valanciunas had cleared immigration and would play against the San Antonio Spurs.
Valanciunas was part of the big trade last week that sent Memphis cornerstone Marc Gasol to Toronto.
Jonas put up 23 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists in just 21 minutes off the bench.
Avery Bradley was even better, with a career-high 33 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists.
The problem was that Grizz Guard Mike Conley got sick even later Tuesday afternoon and was out. Spurs go on to win it by one, with a final score of 108-107.
