Notebook: Grizzlies 100, Nuggets 92


Marlon W. Morgan, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Apr 04, 2014 11:11 PM - Updated Fri Apr 04, 2014 11:11 PM

THE FACT: Memphis wins the season series against Denver, 3-1. It is just the third time in franchise history that the Grizzlies have beaten the Nuggets three times in a season (2011-12, and 1997-98).

THE LEAD: Returning home after a five-game road trip in which they were 2-3, and a having a day off didn't have the Grizzlies' (45-31) offense as crisp as they would like. And they suffered their share of defensive breakdowns. But enough things went to their way to hold off a pesky Denver Nuggets (33-43) team, 100-92, allowing the Grizzlies to hang onto their No. 8 spot in the Western Conference playoff race. Center Marc Gasol led the way with a season-high 24 points, while Mike Conley added 21 and Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 rebounds. The Nuggets were led by Randy Foye's 21 points and nine boards, while Ty Lawson had 16.

QUOTABLE: "I really dislike the word pressure. I think it's more a sense of urgency playing good basketball, and playing to our level, playing the way we need to play. That's what we need to do. Pressure is something that nobody can really put on you. It's all mental. It's all mental, it's all you. I really don't believe in pressure. It's more of doing the things that we're supposed to do to give us a chance to win the games."
-- Gasol on pressure to win every night

THE STAT: The Grizzlies extended their home court winning streak to a season-high 11 games and are two wins shy of tying the franchise record of 13 set last season.

TURNING POINT: The Grizzlies were leading 78-72 when backup point guard Nick Calathes was out on a fastbreak. As he approached the rim, the rookie guard attempted an over-the-head pass that squandered a sure basket and drew the ire of coach Dave Joerger, who immediately called a timeout. Following the timeout, the Grizzlies went on a 12-4 run to take a 90-76 lead with 4:43 to go.

HOT: While most of the Grizzlies struggled from the floor offensive, it was Gasol who kept his team going, particularly in the first half. Gasol scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half and finished the game making 8 of his 16 shots from the floor.

NOT: Both teams were ice cold from the floor. Denver shot 36.3 percent (29-for-80) from the floor, while the Grizzlies weren't much better at 38.6 percent (32-for-83). The Grizzlies made 5 of their first 6 shots to start the game, before their shooting when south for the night. Fortunately, both teams were successful at the free throw line. Denver made 27-for-32 (84.4 percent) and the Grizzlies were 34-for-38 (89.5 percent).

QUOTABLE II: "I still commend our guys. They fought until the very end. It looks like we might have another player down. And Ty, that is just unfortunately been the story of our season. We just have to keep continuing to fight and finish this thing out."
-- Denver coach Brian Shaw

NOTABLE: Grizzlies' forward Tayshaun Prince was off to a great start, making 6 of his 8 shots for 12 points before he landed awkwardly on his left ankle with 1:37 remaining in the second quarter. Prince suffered a sprained left ankle and did not return. Denver got equally bad news when Lawson went down with three minutes left in the game, also with a sprained left ankle. He did not return. X-rays were negative and he left FedExForum wearing a boot. ... Lawson did not start because he missed the Nuggets breakfast meeting Friday morning. Aaron Brooks started in his place. Brooks scored 11 points on 5 of 13 shooting. Lawson did most of his damage at the free throw line where he was 10 of 12. ... All five Memphis starters scored in double figures for the first time since Jan. 12 against Atlanta. ... Mike Conley had two steals to join LeBron James as the only NBA players to record at least 100 steals in each of the last five seasons. ... Kenneth Faried had 17 points and 12 rebounds. But the Nuggets picked up a rare loss when he posts a double-double. They are now 50-16 in those games. ... Memphis has held Denver under 100 points twice in five days. It is just the third time in Denver's last 10 games that it failed to reach 100 points. ... Denver has lost a season-high five consecutive road games.

UP NEXT: For the Nuggets, Sunday @ Houston, Wednesday vs. Houston, Thursday @ Golden State. For the Grizzlies, Sunday @ San Antonio, Wednesday vs. Miami, Friday vs. Philadelphia.
