Notebook: Grizzlies 99, Suns 91


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Jan 03, 2014 1:52 AM - Updated Fri Jan 03, 2014 1:52 AM

THE FACT: Jeff Hornacek became the first person in NBA history to win both the player and Coach of the Month honors with the same franchise.

THE LEAD: The Suns had their questionable depth tested Thursday night. They flunked.

The visiting Memphis Grizzlies (14-17), outside of a wild Suns' run in the third quarter, slowed the game to their preferred pace and came up with a 99-91 win.

The Suns played without Eric Bledsoe, who was a last-minute scratch because of right-knee sprain. Gerald Green started instead.

Goran Dragic exploded for his career scoring high, 33, but the Grizzlies kept the other Suns (19-12) quiet while shutting down the Suns' 3-point game.

Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 boards for the Grizzlies, who also got big bench contributions from Jerryd Bayless, who scored 17 (11 in the fourth quarter) while playing in his hometown, and Ed Davis (16 points, 11 rebounds).

The Suns went on an 18-0 run -- highlighted by driving layups, steals and fast breaks -- to take a 62-57 lead in the third quarter. But the Grizzlies started the fourth quarter with a 13-2 spurt to grab an 82-75 lead.

Bayless hit a 3-pointer to give them a 94-84 lead with 4:30 left, and the Grizzlies coasted home.

The Grizzlies are 2-0 against the Suns this season, having beaten them on Dec. 3 in Memphis.

QUOTABLE: "It's tough to play at that pace. They practice that way. They play that way. It's not our style."
-- Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley on how his team wanted to dictate the tempo

THE STAT: The Grizzlies' bench players outscored the Suns' reserves 54-15.

TURNING POINT: Mike Miller hit two free throws, then Bayless nailed a 3-pointer to start the Grizzlies on their decisive 13-2 run to start the final quarter.

QUOTABLE II: "We are kind of the knuckleball. We are built differently. We have to try to play from a lead."
-- Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger on how his team differs from many others in the generally high-scoring, up-tempo West

QUOTABLE III: "I take it as a team award. I didn't shoot any baskets, and I didn't get any rebounds or any assists. Obviously, the players played great."
-- Hornacek on the Coach of the Month award

HOT: Davis shot 8-for-11.

NOT: The Suns shot just 8-for-30 on 3-pointers and just 9-for-16 from the free-throw line.

ROOKIE WATCH: The Suns' Archie Goodwin failed to score in five minutes.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: The Grizzlies' Davis has shot 17-for-23 for 41 points over his last three games.

NOTABLE: Hornacek joins Cotton Fitzsimmons, Paul Westphal, Frank Johnson, Mike D'Antoni and Alvin Gentry as Suns' coaches who have won the Coach of the Month award....The Grizzlies outrebounded the Suns, 59-40; the 59 rebounds represent the most allowed to a Suns' opponent since the New York Knicks grabbed 59 against them on Nov. 7, 2011... Randolph had his 16th double-double in his past 22 games....The Suns had started the same 5-man lineup for the 13 straight games until Bledsoe's scratch.

UP NEXT: For the Grizzlies, Friday @ Denver, Los Angeles Lakers, Sunday @ Detroit and Tuesday vs. Spurs. For the Suns, Saturday vs. Bucks, Tuesday @ Chicago and Wednesday @ Minnesota.
