Final Score: Grizzlies grind out a win over the Pistons, 90-78

US PRESSWIRE

The Memphis Grizzlies took care of business tonight against the Pistons, 90-78.

It wasn't pretty, but the Memphis Grizzlies, without Tony Allen, topped the Detroit Pistons, 90-78.

With Allen sitting, due to a strained right groin, the Grizzlies brought a strong defensive effort, forcing 22 turnovers, 13 of which belonged to Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight. On the flip, the Griz coughed up the ball just 12 times.

As for offense, it was pretty much ugly on both sides. The two teams shot just 40 percent from the floor, while the Grizzlies saw their double-double machine, Zach Randolph, go for just 8 points and 5 rebounds in 30 minutes.

On the bright side, Darrell Arthur came off the bench to score 11 points in 15 minutes, on 5-of-8 shooting. In fact, the bench was a nice spark in spurts, with Jerryd Bayless going for 10 on 4-of-6 shooting. It wasn't pretty, but it was much needed.

For the Pistons, there was nothing "pretty" about their performance. They especially struggled in the 4th quarter where they scored just 12 points -- shhh... the Grizzlies scored just 14 of their own in that frame.

In all, it wasn't pretty, but it was a win. And with a road game against a rested Spurs team tomorrow night on the horizon, they kinda needed this one.
