Shorthanded Grizzlies lose in Toronto
TORONTO – Kyle Lowry had 29 points and eight assists, DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and the Toronto Raptors ended the Memphis Grizzlies’ six-game road winning streak with a 120-105 victory Wednesday night.
Cory Joseph added 16 points off the bench for the Raptors, who defeated Memphis for the third straight time and for the sixth time in their last seven meetings. It was the fourth straight victory overall for the Raptors, their longest winning streak of the season.
Andrew Harrison had 21 points and Troy Daniels added 19 off the bench for the injury-riddled Grizzlies, who were missing six regulars. Among the absent is star Mike Conley, who was ruled out for at least six weeks Tuesday with fractured vertebrae in his lower back. The Memphis guard was injured during Monday’s loss to Charlotte.
