Notebook: Grizzlies 88, Rockets 87


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Jan 25, 2014 12:02 AM - Updated Sat Jan 25, 2014 12:02 AM

THE FACT: The Memphis Grizzlies, who entered Friday 0-10 against Southwest Division foes, earned their first victory this season within their division by defeating the Houston Rockets 88-87.

THE LEAD: Courtney Lee scored 19 points on 6-for-9 shooting, and Zach Randolph added 15 points and eight rebounds as the Grizzlies squeaked out an 88-87 victory over Houston on Friday at Toyota Center. Mike Conley finished with 14 points on 6-for-11 shooting for Memphis (21-20), which has won six of its last seven games overall and 10 of 14 on the road.

The Grizzlies overcame a sensational second-half shooting performance from Rockets forward Chandler Parsons, who scored a career-high 34 points on 11-for-17 shooting, including 10-for-14 shooting from 3-point range. James Harden contributed a double-double of 10 points and a career-best 13 assists for Houston (29-16), which had a three-game win streak snapped, but he connected on only two of 11 field-goal attempts.

QUOTABLE: "They made their run, and we had to weather that storm. But we had to get back to playing defense, controlling the boards, making them take tough shots and then executing offensively."
-- Conley

THE STAT: The Grizzlies became the first team this season to limit the Rockets to less than 35 points in the paint, recording a 48-30 edge on the inside.

TURNING POINT: Memphis faced a 69-66 deficit with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter before it converted either a dunk or layup on five consecutive possessions as it put together a 10-2 run to claim a 76-71 lead. The Rockets cut the Grizzlies' advantage to 88-87 when Parsons buried a 3-pointer with less than two minutes to play, but Houston missed its next five shots and failed to score again.

QUOTABLE II: "It was huge. Some nights, the ball doesn't go in, but when you get easy looks like layups and stuff around the basket, that helps a lot. ... That keeps you in the game."
-- Lee on the surge of easy buckets early in the final period

HOT: Parsons drained his first 10 3-point attempts of the second half, matching Kenny Smith's franchise record for most consecutive makes from behind the arc. Parsons also become the first player in franchise history to nail six treys in a quarter when he shot 6-for-6 in the third.

NOT: The Rockets missed their first 12 3-point attempts and shot an abysmal 1-for-14 (7.1 percent) from behind the arc over the first two quarters.

GOOD MOVE: Memphis prevented dribble-penetration by packing the paint and forced Houston to beat it from the perimeter. Apart from Parsons, the Rockets were not up for the challenge.

BAD MOVE: The man with the hot hand, Parsons, initiated the offense and did not attempt a shot on the final possession of the game.

QUOTABLE III: "They came out and trapped, and I was going to throw it back to James, and James cut. I guess he was denied, and I couldn't really give it to Dwight [Howard], so I just kind of got stuck and I picked my dribble up. I should have kept my dribble alive."
-- Parsons on the last play

NOTABLE: The Grizzlies' Tony Allen missed his ninth consecutive game due to a sprained left wrist, and he will also sit out when these clubs complete their home-and-home series Saturday in Memphis. Coach David Joerger said he does not expect the 10th-year guard to return to action within the next week. "We're not close [to his return]," Joerger said. "He's going on [our next road] trip, but we don't have any practice time scheduled. ... [He'll] just [be] getting workouts in and getting back in the swing." ... Rockets forward Terrence Jones returned to the starting five after missing the last two games with a deep bruise in his left thigh. Jones' recovery shuffled Donatas Motiejunas back into a reserve role. Houston is still far from achieving full health, however, as it played without reserves Omer Asik (leg), Ronnie Brewer (calf), Francisco Garcia (knee) and Greg Smith (knee). ... Memphis forward James Johnson has blocked at least two shots in eight consecutive games, the longest active steak of its kind in the NBA. ... Lee has shot 22-for-22 from the free-throw line since he was traded to Memphis earlier this month. ... The Grizzlies had lost 14 of their previous 15 meetings with the Rockets in Houston. ... Memphis is 4-1 since center Marc Gasol returned from a MCL sprain in his left knee. ... The Grizzlies improved to 5-1 this season on the first night of a back-to-back set of games. ... Howard has posted a double-double in four straight outings. ... The Rockets fell to 3-9 when they score less than 100 points.

UP NEXT: For the Grizzlies: Saturday vs. Houston, Tuesday @ Portland, Wednesday @ Sacramento. For the Rockets: Saturday @ Memphis, Tuesday vs. San Antonio, Wednesday @ Dallas.
