The Grizzlies hung close all night and finally closed the deal late in the fourth quarter, pulling out a 7-point victory over Sacramento at FedExForum.
Pau Gasol led all scorers with 34 points, to go along with 8 rebounds and 8 blocks. Mike Miller had 27 points and Lawrence Roberts had 14 rebounds.
The other big story (maybe) of the night, was the absence of veteran Eddie Jones. Was he waived, sold, kidnapped?
