Grizzlies return from All-Star break with easy win
Auburn Hills, MI-The Grizzlies didn’t exactly pick up where they left off prior to the NBA All-Star break, but it didn’t take long for them to recapture the momentum that had led to a three-game win streak. After a shaky first quarter, the Grizzlies demolished the Detroit Pistons, 105-91, for their fourth straight win.
Mike Conley scored 19 points to lead the Grizzlies. Zach Randolph, fresh off his second All-Star appearance, had his 31st double-double of the season with 15 points and ten rebounds.
The Grizzlies gave up 30 points to the Pistons in the first quarter, but cranked up the defense after that to hold Detroit to a combined total of 30 points between the second and third quarters.
The Grizzlies are now 34-18 and play at Toronto on Wednesday in their first game against former teammate Rudy Gay since he was traded up north a few weeks ago.
