Final Score: Grizzlies 81, Nuggets 72

Some day they're going to make Lionel Hollins foam fingers. - Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The Grizzlies snap a two-game losing streak by beating the Nuggets in an ugly game that saw some crazy things happen.

The last time these two teams played, the Nuggets won. Not so tonight, though, as the Grizzlies managed to throw some crazy big and crazy small lineups out on the floor to save the game at home after Quincy Pondexter went down after banging knees with Wayne Ellington.

Here's the box score:


Final - 12.29.2012 1 2 3 4 Total
Denver Nuggets 15 21 21 15 72
Memphis Grizzlies 19 18 16 28 81

Quincy hurt his knee, and then:
Hamed will save us.
