Miller Proves Worth With Grizzlies on Return to Lineup

To Say Mike Miller is a valuable commodity for the Memphis Grizzlies is, quite frankly, a Huge Understatement..

Miller showed his worth in a rare Grizz victory last night.

Miller had missed 7-straight games with a sore back before Wednesday's contest against the New Jersey Nets..

The Grizzlies lost all 7, and saw their team scoring average dip from 100 points a game to less than 93.

But, with Miller back in the starting lineup...the offense had flow..particular because of his ability to stretch the defense..

The Nets, who..amazingly, still have a chance to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, stayed in the game..but were confounded by Memphis Zone Defense...

Plus, Miller's Big Drive Hoop and foul late in the 4th quarter basically put the Nets away in a 100-to-93 victory.

Miller had plenty of help from Hakim Warrick with season high 25 points and 7-boards...

And guard Kyle Lowry seals the victory by outracing Vince Carter to this loose ball with :35 seconds left.

The Grizzlies next host the Boston Celtics Saturday night 7pm at FedExForum.
