The Grizz Shorthanded with a late scratch of starter Shane Battier with a Sprained Ring Finger..and key backup Bobby Jackson with a sore hamstring..

Mike Miller knocks down 21 in a starting roll to lead Memphis...

And the Grizz turn in some stellar defensive plays to stay in the game despite another horrible shooting night..

And Brian Cardinal sees his first action of the season after recovering from off-season knee surgery.

But its' just too much Kobe Bryant.

27-for the Lakers Star..

L.A. Goes on to win it Big..

Final...94-79

The Grizz, now 13-8, next host the Phoenix Suns Saturday night at FedExForum.
