Notebook: Grizzlies 94, Timberwolves 90


Phil Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:08 AM - Updated Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:08 AM

THE FACT: Memphis has won six straight road games, one short of the franchise record, set in 2011. The Grizzlies must win in Oklahoma City next Monday to match it.

THE LEAD: Zach Randolph responded to the loss of point guard Mike Conley by scoring nine points over the final six minutes Friday night, and the Grizzlies won for the tenth time in 11 games by holding off the Minnesota Timberwolves, 94-90 in Target Center. Kevin Love scored 28 points and added 16 rebounds as the Timberwolves, who lost for just the second time in six games to fall back to .500, rallied from a 16-point third quarter deficit. Randolph, however, scored 26 points with 12 rebounds to spark a decisive 11-2 fourth-quarter run after Conley left with a sprained ankle.

QUOTABLE: "Big Fella getting back to his old self." -- Memphis forward Zach Randolph, who averaged 22.3 points and 9.7 rebounds during the Grizzlies' three-game road trip.

THE STAT: 1 -- Number of shots the Timberwolves took from closer than 18 feet, of seven total attempts, from the 5:00 mark of the fourth quarter to the 1:00 mark. Minnesota made only one shot during those four minutes, and Memphis, which took only one long jumper during that stretch, went on an 11-2 run to retake the lead and win the game.

TURNING POINT: Mike Conley landed on J.J. Barea's foot and crumpled to the ground with 6:37 remaining in a tie game, and his absence, after being helped off the floor, changed the game. But oddly, it helped the Grizzlies. Without their floor leader, the Grizzlies stuck to a basic, but enormously effective, offense: Feed it to Zach Randolph. The two-time All-Star scored nine points down the stretch to carry Memphis to victory.

QUOTABLE II: "He's a proud man, an extremely competitive man. Think of all the banging those guys take, night-in and night-out, year-in and year-out. But he goes down there and gets to work." -- Grizzles coach Dave Joerger, on forward Zach Randolph

HOT: The Grizzlies swept their three-game road trip to Portland, Sacramento and Minnesota and finished January with a 12-3 record. They are 8-1 since Marc Gasol returned from a knee injury Jan. 15.

NOT: Chase Budinger also returned from a knee injury this month, but his return has been far less effective. The Wolves forward went 1-for-5 from the field Friday, and is averaging only 4.5 points on 31.8 percent shooting in 12 games.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Kevin Love's 28-point, 16-rebound performance was his 28th 20-point, 10-rebound game of the season, and his NBA-leading 39th double-double. But he outdid himself -- or Memphis, actually -- in the third quarter, outscoring the Grizzlies by himself, 18-16.

INSIDE THE ARENA: The game was a homecoming for Memphis coach Dave Joerger, who grew up in Staples, Minn., about 100 miles northwest of Target Center. Joerger estimated that at least two dozen friends and family members were in the crowd, forming an unusually loud cheering section opposite the Grizzlies' bench. "I gave everybody my brother's phone number and let them call him for tickets," Joerger said of the crowd. The game, he added, "was an emotional experience for me." ... The Wolves used Adam Silver-signature basketballs before the game to break them in, but switched back to a David Stern model for the game.

GOOD MOVE: The Grizzlies play again Saturday, but coach Dave Joerger said he decided before the game not to let the back-to-back limit how many minutes he played his most important players if necessary. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each played more than 40 minutes, including the entire fourth quarter.

BAD MOVE: Rick Adelman has a habit of sitting point guard Ricky Rubio during the fourth quarter if backup J.J. Barea is shooting well, but the timing was particularly strange Friday after Rubio helped lead the Wolves' comeback with six third quarter assists. Rubio never played again, and after Minnesota dominated the third quarter 30-16, Memphis outscored the Wolves 28-23 in the fourth.

ROOKIE WATCH: The Wolves appeared listless in the second quarter as Memphis built a 12-point lead, but center Gorgui Dieng, playing because Nikola Pekovic is injured, thrilled the Target Center crowd and energized his team with defense. First, the Louisville product blocked a dunk attempt by Ed Davis and grabbed the ricochet; a minute later, he stuffed another point-blank shot by Davis. Dieng finished with no points, but three rebounds, a steal and two blocks.

NOTABLE: Memphis guard Mike Conley was helped off the floor after turning his left ankle by landing on J.J. Barea's foot with 6:37 to play. He didn't return, and the Grizzlies said the preliminary indication was an ankle sprain. He will be examined again Saturday. ... Wolves center Nikola Pekovic missed his second straight game with inflammation in his right ankle, a bursitis condition that will keep him off the floor for at least another week. Ronny Turiaf started in Pekovic's place, but he's unlikely to replicate Pekovic's 18-point average. Turiaf hasn't scored that many points in a game since Jan. 11, 2011, or 131 games ago. ... Memphis outscored Minnesota 56-46 in the paint. ... Minnesota fell to 1-12 in games decided by four points or less.

UP NEXT: For the Grizzlies, Saturday vs. Bucks, Monday @ Oklahoma City, Wednesday vs. Mavericks. For the Timberwolves, Saturday @ Atlanta, Tuesday vs. Lakers, Wednesday @ Oklahoma City.
