Grizzlies Take it to Wire at Sacramento but Fall 104-96

It's another Test on the Road for the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizz are trying to keep it from becoming a Ron Artest night in Sacramento against the Kings...

Artest at 6'7" and 252 pounds, just too strong for anyone in the paint..

12-first half points..

Grizz get down by as much as 19..but rally back behind Slam Dunking Rookie Hakim Warrick..

Warrick lights up the Kings on a 9-point personal run of his own to get Memphis back in it..

Grizz Guard Bobby Jackson returns to his former home and explodes for 24 points, including 22 in the second half as Memphis actually takes a 1-point lead at 93-92...

But the Kings get the benefit of some late calls and clutch 3-point shooting by Center Brad Miller.

The 7-footer hits back to back 3 with under a minute to play, and scores 12-straight points.

Sacramento outlasts Memphis 106-94.

The Grizzlies fall to 26-and-21.

Memphis stays on the Road Wednesday night at Phoenix
