• Grizzlies throttle Bobcats 111-89


    The Grizzlies returned home from a road trip to beat the Bobcats 111-89.

    The Grizzlies had played three games away from home in the last week, but powered right through Charlotte on the second night of a back-to-back. The win was the Grizzlies fourth in five games.

    The Grizz faced a 15-8 deficit early in the game when former Memphis Tiger Chris Douglas-Roberts converted a layup at the 7:13 mark of the first quarter. But the Grizzlies answered with an 18-6 run that gave them the lead for good.

    After struggling in his last two games, Mike Conley rediscovered his shooting stroke. Conley went 7-18 from the field, including 5 of 7 from long distance, for 20 points. Marc Gasol (14 points, 9 rebounds), Zach Randolph (16 points, 7 rebounds) and Kosta Koufos off the bench (12 points, 10 rebounds) controlled the paint for Memphis.

    The Grizzlies have two days off before hosting the Portland Blazers on Tuesday, March 11.
