Grizzlies' second string gets job done against Wizards


By John N. Mitchell, for NBA.com

WASHINGTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- After suffering a heart-breaking overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers the night before, it would have been understandable if the Memphis Grizzlies showed up with heavy legs and dropped a road game to the suddenly surging Washington Wizards.

But Memphis coach Lionel Hollins is learning to trust his bench as the season progresses, and that trust paid off for the Grizzlies in the form of a 99-94 victory at Verizon Center.

With the Grizzlies leading 69-68 at the start of the fourth quarter, Hollins sent out a lineup to begin the fourth quarter that did not include starters Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph or Marc Gasol. Rather, starters O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley were joined on the floor by reserves Hamed Haddadi, Darrell Arthur and Marcus Williams, and the combination worked like a charm.

That group needed just under three minutes to forge an 80-70 lead following Mayo's 3-pointer, and together they played a role in the Grizzlies' 19-6 run at the fourth quarter that put the game out of reach.

"Tonight I think the key was the bench," said Gasol. "They deserve all the credit for this win. Everybody did a great job. But we are starting to get more confidence in our bench play. I've always had confidence in them because they are my teammates and we are a team. Tonight we needed them. "

For most of the night Gasol didn't look as if the extra period the night before took anything from his game. Using a variety of slick moves around the basket, Gasol torched the Wizards' frontline, making his first 10 shots from the field and finishing with 20 points on 10-for-11 shooting.

Gay and Randolph both scored 20 points apiece, and Gasol (nine rebounds), Randolph and Gay (seven boards each) were too much for the Wizards, who saw their longest home winning streak of the season end at three games.

"At the end of the game we just picked up our intensity," Gay said. "The bench did a good job for us and we held off their late run."

Mayo finished with 17 points, including 10 in the fourth, and he handed out a game-high eight assists.

The Wizards were held to less than 100 points for the first time since they dealt Antawn Jamison to Cleveland. They were also playing without the services of Josh Howard. Howard, acquired in the deal that sent Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to Dallas, had looked comfortable playing for the Wizards. However, his season came to an abrupt end when it was learned that he had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg Monday in a win over Chicago.

With Howard gone, the Wizards were forced to make a lineup shuffle, inserting Al Thornton -- recently acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers -- into the starting lineup. In three games as a reserve Thornton averaged 16.0 points for the Wizards. And while he notched his first double-double of the season for the Wizards (16 points, 11 rebounds), his insertion into the starting lineup created some problems for Washington.

"What we miss is we lose another option," Wizards coach Flip Saunders said. "When you lose a player, other players have to step into different roles. So instead of Thornton coming off the bench you have to use him in a starting position. It certainly puts different pressure on guys. We kept fighting back but we had that terrible stretch in the fourth quarter."

Andray Blatche has been a force for the Wizards since the trade. Memphis at times rolled a double-team over to the 6-11 Blatche but he still led the Wizards with 24 points and eight rebounds.

Averaging 25.0 points and 10.3 rebounds while shooting better than 59 percent from the field in the first four games since the all-star break, Blatche says he's gotten used to being the first option.

"I've accepted that role," Blatche said. "We are all accepting our roles. We are young and we've got young legs. So we're going to go out and play hard every night. We've got to give the effort. You do that and anything can happen.

JaVale McGee was the only other Washington player to reach double-figures in scoring (10 points.)
