Jazz Outplay Grizzlies in Utah

The Memphis Grizzlies continue their steady diet of the Best of the West tonight at the Utah Jazz..

The Grizzlies just got whacked by the Jazz last Saturday in Memphis..and have played Dallas and San Antonio in this recent stretch..

Grizz show some grit in the first period..O.J. Mayo out ahead..miss bunny, but Marc Gasol there for the tipin..

Then Utah begins to flex its' muscles..

Mehmet Okur off the Double Team wide open 3..

And Daron Williams the Olympian with a double double in points and assists..

This pass to former Hog Ronnie Brewer for the Jam!

So Memphis Head Coach Marc Iavaroni says, he we've got to change this and right now...

That means it's time for the O.J. Mayo show...

And O.J. does his thing...be it scoring off loose balls in the paint...

To knocking down wide open wing jumpers...

Mayo hits 7 of 11 buckets in the first half...

The NBA's leading Rookie Scorer had 20 by early in the third period..

He winds up with 22 points 8-rebounds.

But, this one All Utah just before the break..

And all Paul Millsap in the paint..

Millsap outmuscles everybody in a Grizzly uniform for the ball..

24-points 15 Rebounds for Millsap

Final Score..Jazz win 117 100

The Grizz stay on the Road for another tough one onThanksgiving Thank You NBA..

Next game Friday night at the San Antonio Spurs.
