Grizzlies Battle Blazers to Wire but Fall in Portland

The Memphis Grizzlies are Way Out West in Portland taking on the Blazers..

Portlands' Greg Oden still out with bone chips in his knee..

  Former Blazer Darius Miles booed lustily every time he touched the basketball for the Grizzlies.

Miles, whom the Blazers Cut several years ago after Team Doctors told him knee surgery had curtailed his career, scored 6-points and grabbed 5 rebounds in an energetic effort.

  Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo were on their games for the Grizz, and point guard Mike Conley one of his better outings with 15-points and 10-assists.

This one a slugfest as Memphis matched the Blazers blow for blow in the paint, but couldn't knock them down from the Free Throw line.

  The Grizz go 12 of 20 from the stripe, compared to Portlands' 15-of-18.

  Brandon Roy hits 2 Free Throws to ice it with :05 seconds left. He had 24 points for Portland.

  Blazers win it 94-to-90.

The Grizzlies are back home Friday night against Sacramento at FedExForum.
