Grizzlies Wrap Up Spanish Tour with Big Victory

What a difference a game makes as the Memphis Grizzlies close out their Spanish training Camp Odyssey.

Take you across the Atlantic Ocean to the Palacio dePortes Madrid, where the Grizz play the final of their two exhibition games against Spanish pro teams..

MMT Estudiantes is out to hand the Grizzlies a loss like Unicaja Malaga did Tuesday...

Estudiantes beat Malaga last Sunday...but they're NOT going to beat Memphis..

Grizz Coach Marc Iavaroni continues experimenting with lineups, brings Darko Milicic off the bench early, and it pays dividends..

Darko has his best day throwing down 13-points on 6-of-9 shooting to lead a balanced Memphis attack.

He also grabs 7-rebounds and blocks 2 shots..

Pau Gasol only 19-minutes, but he fills up the stat sheet with 10-points, 5-rebounds 3-Blocks and 3-assists..

The Grizz jump out to a 32-11 first quarter lead and never look back.

Memphis wins it 98-73.

Iavaroni much more pleased with game two.

"We showed our response today. We came out very focused. When the other team struggled, we made sure it wasn't much of a game after the initial phase." >

The Grizzlies returned to Memphis immediately.

They'll host an Open Practice Saturday 12-Noon at FedExForum before opening their NBA Pre-Season Schedule Monday night at the Forum against Minnesota.
