Grizz Can’t Slow Down Blazers
Portland, OR– Former Blazer Zach Randolph scored 21 points and Marc Gasol added 20 but it was nowhere near enough as the Grizzlies lose in Portland, 105-98, falling to 9th in the Western Conference Playoff race with just 9 games to go.
The Blazers took control of this one in a 32-point second quarter to go up by 12 at halftime, a lead they’d push to 16 after 3. LaMarcus Aldridge led all scorers with 28 with the Trailblazers putting five players in double figures, shooting 52% for the game.
The Grizzlies falling to 1-2 on this crucial season-long five game road trip. They’re at Denver on Monday night before closing the trip in Minneapolis against the Timberwolves.
