Grizzlies

Memphis, TN-Grizzlies center Marc Gasol had a double-double on Tuesday to lead Memphis to a third straight win, 108-101, over Sacramento. Gasol, who many people felt was overlooked for an All-Star spot, scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.

Grizzlies guard Mike Conley added 22 points and Tony Allen scored a season-high 19 points for Memphis. Former Memphis Tigers star Tyreke Evans scored 20 points for the Kings in his return to FedExForum where he played one year of college ball.

The Grizzlies are now 33-18 and in fourth place in the Western Conference playoff race.
