MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - They made it to overtime, but the Grizzlies were no match for Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers, who won 112-106 at the FedExForum.
Lillard dropped a game-high 33 points for Portland, which inched closer to a .500 record, far from the team experts predicted them to be before the season.
The Grizzlies were dealt a huge blow as Marc Gasol limped off the court with a foot injury in the first quarter. He would not return.
The combo of Mike Conley and Zach Randolph were huge for the Grizzlies, combining for 53 points.
The Grizz shot 50 percent from the field despite the big injury from their leading scorer, but it wasn't enough as they were outscored 10-4 in overtime.
The Grizzlies dropped to 30-22 on the season and will head to Brooklyn for their next contest on Wednesday.
