Grizzlies defend home court, hold off short-handed Bulls

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (NBA.com exclusive) -- Playing without Derrick Rose (sprained wrist), Luol Deng (calf strain), Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis) and Kirk Hinrich (suspension), Chicago Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro was forced to use some unconventional lineups.

The Bulls version of small ball gave Memphis fits both early and late as they struggled to matchup. Fortunately for the Grizzlies, they managed to build a 25-point cushion in the middle of the game, one they would later need as they managed to hold off the scrappy Bulls, 104-97, at FedExForum.

"They had different lineups, different guys out there you're not used to seeing as much," Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley said. "We just had to adjust to it as quick as possible."

The Bulls started the game with a three-guard lineup featuring Jannero Pargo, Flip Murray and Acie Law, along with Taj Gibson and Brad Miller. That lineup managed to jump out to a 20-10 lead as the Grizzlies not only struggled defensively, but commuted seven of its 23 turnovers in the opening quarter.

"They kept changing their lineups and going smaller and smaller, and trying to create bad matchups," Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said.

The Grizzlies finally got going in the second and third quarters when they appeared to have the game in hand. But for the second time in three games, the Grizzlies lost the bulk of a 20-plus point lead late in the game, only to find a way to pull it out in the end. Against New York, Memphis led by 29 points in the second half before that lead was trimmed to five in the closing minutes.

Against Chicago, Memphis led 81-56 with 2:34 left in the third quarter. With 3:39 to go in the game, that lead had dwindled to 94-90. But it was the Bulls down the stretch who began turning the ball over, including a crucial one by Pargo with 35 seconds remaining and the Grizzlies leading 95-90. Chicago committed seven of its 19 turnovers in the final period, and Pargo and Law finished the game with five turnovers apiece.

"I thought in the second half, we did a better job defensively," Del Negro said. "We had some good stops, but then we turned it over too much. A lot of guys haven't played together for awhile. I was pleased with the effort, but I was disappointed with the outcome. We will just try to get guys healthy."

If there was a bright spot for the Grizzlies, it was the 10-point, nine-rebound effort they got from rookie center Hasheem Thabeet., who made his first career start in place of Marc Gasol, who was out nursing a strained neck muscle. Thabeet, the No. 2 pick in last year's draft tied career highs in both points and rebounds while playing a career-high 28 minutes.

It was just last month that the 7-3 center was sent to the D-League where he averaged 13.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.2 blocked shots in six games. Thabeet showed some of that aggressive play early and late, picking up a blocked shot and a dunk over Chicago center Brad Miller, while adding a key basket on a lob from Mike Conley late in the game to push the Grizzlies lead back to 10 points.

"Coach told me to always take my time," Thabeet said. "Go out there and not try to do the stuff you can't do. Do the stuff you can do. I tried to do that and it worked pretty well."

Thabeet's teammates were particularly pleased with what they saw from the new-look Thabeet.

"He's going to continue to get better," O.J. Mayo said. "As his teammates, as his brothers, we just have to be patient with him and continue to root him on, cheer him on and stay positive with him. He'll continue to get better for us."

Mike Conley added, "That's exactly was we needed, to get him going early. It kept his mind in the game and he kept his focus. He did a great job from then on."

Playing a big part in the bulls comeback was former Grizzly forward Hakim Warrick. Warrick came off the bench to score 22 points with four rebounds in 28 minutes. Ten of those points came in the final quarter.

"It's hard coming back to an old team," Warrick said. "I still have some close friends, staff, and just everyone that works here. I would be lying if I said it wasn't an extra motivation to win. It was a tough one tonight, especially when we needed it. That put more pressure on me."

It was a critical game for both teams, who find themselves on the outside looking in at the playoffs. The Bulls. losers of eight in a row, are in the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Grizzlies moved into the ninth spot, a half-game ahead of Houston, where they Grizzlies will play Wednesday night.

Murray scored a game-high 25 points for the Bulls and Law added a season-high 18 Pargo had a season-high eight assists.

The Grizzlies were led by Mayo's 24 points. Conley picked up his third double-double of the season with 19 points and 10 assists. Zach Randolph had 18 points and 12 rebounds.
