Recap

Dorsey gives Rockets needed boost in win over Grizzlies

MEMPHIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Houston coach Rick Adelman knew his undersized Rockets were going to need every available rebounder in Friday night's game at Memphis against one of the NBA's top rebounding teams.

That meant giving Joey Dorsey, who was recalled from the NBA D-League last month, a shot agianst the likes of first-time All-Star forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol. In the same arena where he was a fan favorite for the University of Memphis, it was like old times for Dorsey.

The 6-foot-8 forward provided just the spark Adelman was looking for, posting career highs in points (seven), rebounds (12), and minutes (19) as he helped Houston deal the Grizzlies a 101-83 defeat in front of 14,531 at FedExForum.

"When he called my name, I was so excited I just ran past him,'' Dorsey said. "I didn't even ask him who to get. I subbed out the wrong guy and everything because I was so excited to get in the game. Once I got out there, the nerves were gone. I was just playing hard. If you played hard, the game is going to come.''

Dorsey's play epitomized the Rockets' dominating performance. After ridding themselves of some early turnover problems in the first quarter that saw the Grizzlies jump out to a 24-16 lead, the Rockets turned up the defense and crashed the boards.

They kept one or two bodies constantly on Randolph, who came into the game averaging 20.8 points and 11.6 rebounds, while leading the league in offensive rebounds with 4.4. The Rockets limited him to just 14 points and eight boards, including just two on the offensive end.

For the game, the Grizzlies shot just 40.5 percent from the floor. They were 1-for-11 from 3-point range and made just five baskets from outside the paint. The Grizzlies have made just 3-for-23 3-pointers in their last two games. They were also outrebounded 50-35.

"I thought [the defense] was very good,'' Adelman said. "We were very intent on making sure Randolph didn't go one-on-one with people. We had to keep them off the boards. Everybody had to rebound the ball. I think the biggest thing that kind of correlated at the other end is if we moved the ball and we were active, we were going to be quicker and we could get to the offensive boards on them.

"We talked about it going into this game, with Gasol and Randolph, Joey is our best rebounder. He's physical. I had planned on going with our regular rotation and giving him a shot in the second quarter. He did a nice job, and I decided to keep going. He's a very good rebounder and he takes up a lot of space in there. If he just plays smart, he's going to be a big help to us.''

Prior to the game, Dorsey had played in just six games for a total of 15 minutes in his two-year career. Most of his time has been spent in the D-League. Not only were his teammates glad to see Dorsey have his breakout game, they hope there's more where that came from.

"He came in and altered some shots and grabbed 12 rebounds on the night,'' Carl Landry said. "That was something we needed, especially playing against Memphis. He came in and gave us a spark and we kept our foot on the pedal.''

Both teams entered the game tied for third in the Southwest Division at 26-22. The Rockets played with playoff intensity, while the Grizzlies self-destructed in the second half. The loss was their worst at home since a 22-point season-opening loss to Detroit, and was just their second home loss in their last 14 games.

With two games remaining before the All-Star break, the Rockets are looking to gain some momentum.

"We knew this was a game we needed,'' Landry said. "It was almost a must-win game because coming into this game we were tied. We just want to finish strong before the All-Star break. Last year, February was the time we started our 22-game winning streak.''

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have gone into a funk. After winning 15 of 19 to get into the playoff hunt, the Grizzlies have lost four of their last five.

"This is the NBA,'' Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. "It's tough. As we go forward, it's going to get tougher. ... We're struggling a little bit. When you play a team that's quicker than you in just about every position, you're going to have some moments. I was worried about this game when I saw it on the schedule.''

The Rockets were led by Aaron Brooks, who had 19 points and eight rebounds. Ariza added 17 and eight boards and Landry came off the bench to score 17. Houston returns home Saturday to host Philadelphia.

Gasol led Memphis with 17 points and eight rebounds. Rudy Gay and O.J. Mayo each scored 11 and were a combined 8-for-23 from the floor. The Grizzlies travel to Minnesota Saturday night to take on a Timberwolves team that's coming off a 117-108 win at Dallas Friday night.
