New, comment

All heart wasn’t enough for the 9-man Grizzlies to uphold the 6-game road win streak.

Injury Report

Mike Conley (back) and Vince Carter (hip) sat after suffering injuries against Charlotte. With Ennis, Wright, Randolph (for personal reasons), and Parsons still out, Memphis was left with just 9 warm bodies to play in Toronto.

Game Story

The Grizzlies were determined to make up for the depleted numbers with extra effort (why we love them), forcing 11 first-half turnovers against a team that averages 12 per game. All 9 Grizzlies scored in the first half (even Troy Daniels!) to turn in a strong 57 points on 52% shooting, and build up a 12-point lead by the break.

Toronto found its rhythm in the third quarter, getting back a 7-point lead of their own through a bevy of offensive rebounds. The Grizzlies countered with an 8-0 run to start the fourth, but couldn’t defend the three-point line as Toronto notched an insurmountable 12-point lead on DeMarre Carroll’s triple with 4 minutes to go. Toronto finished with 16 threes on the 32 attempts.

Key Performances

Andrew Harrison: 21 points, 4-5 from three
Troy Daniels: 19 points, 4-8 from three
