Grizzlies Gut One Out at Portland/Go Over .500 at 17-16

 

 

-Trail Blazers, Box

 

 

It's a Red Hot Club facing one that's literally limping..

The Memphis Grizzlies Roll into Portland winners of 3-straight, and with the Western Conference Coach of the Month in Lionel Hollins on their side.. 

The TrailBlazers team are still winning, but missing several stars..

 The Rose Garden in Portland overflowing with more than 20-thousand fans where the Blazers lead the NBA's Northwest Division..but have 5-players, including 2 starters either injured or Ill..

Veteran Guard Andre Miller continuing his strong play for Portland...

He's taking up the slack with tuff postups and attacking the rack as the Blazers take a 1 point lead into the half.

The Grizz counter with Z-Bo Zach Randolph... He dominates the paint...

12pts 1st half..

Rudy Gay strong effort with 15 from everywhere..

After the Break it's Jamal Tinsley off the Bench with 5 assists in the 3rd Quarter to help Memphis take command...

  The Blazers, though, Rally with a 12-2 Run in the 4th quarter to go up by 8 with about 3:50 to play..

  But, there's something about this Grizzlies team now. No matter where they go, no matter who they play, they Believe they can win. Bad Free Throw Shooting becomes clutch. Matador Defense becomes Lock-Down.

  The Grizz with 2-steals under a Minute to retake the Lead.

O.J. Mayo pokes the ball away from All-Star Brandon Roy with 25 second left..he's fouled!

The Grizzlies take the lead and don't let it go.

Memphis Rallies for the 109-to-105 victory.

The Grizz over .500 at 17-16.

Next Game Wendesday night at Utah.

Next Home Game against the Jazz Friday night at FedExForum.
