At the end of 3, Grizz 82-70. Gasol leads with 26 & 7. ZBO 16 & 16. MEM 33/67, 5/12 3P, 11/12 FT, 40 rebs (7 off) +14 pts in pt (44-30)
Grizzlies shooting 9-16, 2-3 3P. All 21 points from Conley, ZBo, Gasol (9-13). MEM +2 on glass. Celtics shooting 38% (6-16, 2-5 3P)
All players active for the Grizzlies tonight though some will not play. Starters: Tay, ZBO, Gasol, Lee, Conley.
Casey has gone with Hayes in the game's final 10 minutes. He's made Gasol/Z-Bo work for everything. Big catalyst in the comeback
How do you NOT run into Zach Randolph. That takes talent. And Chuck Hayes justifies being in game over JV by taking a crucial charge.
Raptors going real small to start the 4th: Vasquez/Lou/Ross/DeRozan/Pat. Gasol is set to check back in for Memphis, Z-Bo still on bench
Zach Randolph would be great in any era. Throwback force. And he always kills the Raptors.
Undermanned Grizzlies out-rebound Raps 26-16, out-score them 30-16 in the paint and lead by 6 at the break. DeMar: 10pts, ZBo: 10pts 9reb
Having Marc Gasol and Z-Bo is the new market inefficiency.
Wonderful interior D from both Valanciunas and Amir. Valanciunas has bother Z-Bo before.
Nice start from Valanciunas. His length bothered Z-Bo, then gets fouled inside. Draws one on Gasol.
To Recap: No Leuer, Kosta, Beno, Lee, TA tonight. Zbo, Marc, Mike gotta go 40 Vince, Q on Wings Adams at 2/3 Stokes at PF/C Tay at PG/PF
In case Knicks haven't noticed, Zach Randolph is integral part of league-leading Grizzlies and Jamal Crawford leads NBA bench scorers...
With Z-Bo on Canaan, Calvin Murphy keeps screaming "Take him to the basket." Canaan finally did. Three-point play. Good job, Murph.
That's preseason question that remains. What happens when Rockets face Z-Bo, Aldridge, Griffin, Davis, Nowitzki or Duncan in playoff series?
Great catch by broadcast: Zach Randolph both dribbles & steps out of bounds, right in front of the official. No call. http://t.co/atra0a2Y9h
This is hilarious. James Harden is guarding Zach Randolph. Meanwhile, Randolph is guarding Isaiah Canaan.
Isaiah Canaan starts the second half. Trevor Ariza moves to the four on Z-Bo. Memphis immediately posts him up.
Conley leads all scorers with 15, Q has 13, Zbo 8 & 5. Ariza leads Rockets with 12, Howard 9 & 8, Beverly 8, Harden 6
ZBO is +21, Lee & Q +19, K2 & Conley +18.
Grizzlies rolling with Beno, Q, Vince, ZBo, Kosta.
Zach Randolph seems to care about guarding Tarik Black. http://t.co/4z6bpcKRQn
This should be interesting. Papanikolaou checks in, matched up against Z-Bo.
That said, huge test for D-Mo who has been much better defensively this year. Game vs Z-Bo knocked him out of starting lineup as a rookie.
ZBO team high +11, Lee +10, K2 +8, Beno +6
Gasol with 17 & 8 ZBO 14 & 14 Conley 14 & 4 ast
Grizzlies scoring- Gasol (15), ZBO (14), Conley (11). Pistons scoring- Monroe (14), Singler (11), Smith (11)
Josh Smith giving ZBO some issues.
Gasol with 11 & 4 ZBO with 10 & 4 Conley with 9 & 3 ast
ZBO the first Grizzlies player to 10 points. Every Grizz that's played has scored, except Tayshaun.
Joel Anthony on Gasol. Smith on Zbo.
ZBO played the entire first quarter. Jon Leuer starts the 2nd.
Grizzlies now with Beno, Vince, Lee, Zbo, K2.
Grizzlies have 4 guys who average double figures per game. Gasol (18), ZBO (16.7), Conley (16.6), Lee (15.3)
Grizzlies start ZBo, Gasol, TA, Conley, Lee Pistons start Smith, Monroe, Drummond, Caldwell-Pope, Jennings
104-96 after a Vinsanity 3. Grizzlies with another stop. 4:48 to go. ZBO with 2 FTs. Can bring it to 6.
Starters look awful. 2 straight rough shooting games from ZBO & Marc. That's a little concerning. 4/13 for 15 pts 5 rebs.
Zach Randolph is called for a tech. Kings up 74-54.
Wow, a weak foul call and then a super weak tech on ZBO. That's unreal.
Grizzlies 11-20 in that quarter but with ZBO/Gasol/Conley going 5/17 for 18 points, 5 reb isn't gonna cut it. Rudy has 15 & 4. Boogie 12 & 7
