Grizzlies return to .500 in blowout win over Suns


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sunday January 3, 2010 12:39AM

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- NBA opponents can look a lot different the second time around.

Especially if they're young, talented and starting to figure things out.

The Grizzlies, whipped by the Suns in their first visit to Arizona back on Nov. 25, thoroughly embarrassed them on Saturday night.

The 128-103 rout was pretty much sealed by halftime, when the Grizzlies' inside-out attack ran up a 69-50 lead.

The Suns even heard the season's first significant boos from their fans when the lead reached 87-62 late in the third quarter.

In playing their season's best game -- and putting up their highest point total -- the Grizzlies moved to 16-16.

That means not only are they .500 for the first time this season, it's the first time they've been .500 or better this late since the end of the 2005-06 season (49-33).

They started a lowly 1-8. After that 126-111 loss to the Suns, they were 5-10.

Coach Lionel Hollins, an early coach-of-the-year candidate, said, "It's a proud moment as a coach to see the whole group focus on our game plan, even the guys who came off the bench.

"I don't think you can prepare any better for a team and have it come to fruition the way it did."

The Grizzlies turned the ball over only nine times, preventing the Suns from getting easy hoops, and took good shots.

"We made sure we had two or three people back so they couldn't get layups," said Hollins.

"Our focus was to take away a lot of that stuff and see if they could beat us with their 3s.

"I felt we did an outstanding job. Everything was good."

Hollins said his team has improved pretty much all around, particularly on defense and in limiting turnovers.

"Once players find out they can't do it by themselves, that they need each other, they start playing together, they start trusting each other and it becomes contagious," Hollins said.

"They have to learn that and believe that. And if they have talent, they have chance to win."

The Grizzlies displayed that talent in spades Saturday.

O.J. Mayo (25 points on 10-for-16 shooting ) and rookie Sam Young (a career-high 22 points) controlled the perimeter - where the Suns usually are king - while Zach Randolph (18 points, 11 boards) patrolled the inside.

As for the Suns (21-13), coach Alvin Gentry had warned his team - which had run up impressive wins earlier in the week over the Lakers and Celtics - not to take the Grizzlies lightly.

"I talked about how they were not anywhere close to the team we played five weeks ago," he said.

"You have to play at a high level against this team.

"Lionel has them playing great. Every game, they seem to be playing with more confidence."

As for the Suns?

"I'm a little shocked at the way we played," Gentry said of his team's listlessness.

The Grizzlies started off by getting the ball inside, while the Suns had to double-team and rotate.

Gentry said, "It's hard to be in rotations all the time. It exposed us..."

The Suns looked on the game as a challenge for Amar'e Stoudemire.

Though Stoudemire is foul prone, he was assigned the task of guarding Randolph, whose inside moves are as good as anybody's in the game.

Randolph came into Saturday night averaging astounding numbers in the previous five games: 28.6 points (on 58 percent shooting) and 17.6 rebounds.

"(Amar'e) has got to learn to play without fouling," Gentry said.

Stoudemire avoided foul trouble while scoring 29 on 11-for-15 shooting. But it didn't make any difference, as the Suns had almost nothing going from anybody else except Steve Nash (19 points, 13 assists).

Struggling in particular was the befuddled Leandro Barbosa.

The key reserve had two turnovers, two fouls and shot 1-for-4 in nearly eleven minutes of action.

The Suns had averaged 121 points in the four previous games (after Barbosa had returned from an ankle injury).

But in this game, perimeter shooters Channing Frye and Jason Richardson shot just 4-for-20 between them.

The Suns waved the white flag early in the fourth quarter as Gentry pulled his starters.
