Notebook: Grizzlies 97, Suns 91


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Tue Apr 15, 2014 1:58 AM - Updated Tue Apr 15, 2014 2:01 AM

THE FACT: The Phoenix Suns can become only the fourth team ever to miss the playoffs with 48-plus wins if they win at Sacramento Wednesday.

THE LEAD: The Memphis Grizzlies can count on beating the Suns. And that's a major reason they've qualified for the playoffs.

The Grizzlies (49-32) clinched the playoffs by getting out to a sizeable early lead Monday night in Arizona, then hanging on for a 97-91 win.

Memphis' win completed a 4-0 sweep of the Suns (47-34), who appeared to have a hard time getting over come-from-ahead losses over the weekend in San Antonio and Dallas.

The Suns were eliminated from playoff contention.

The Grizzlies will host the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday night, with the winner getting the No. 7 spot in the West, while the loser will be eighth and play the No. 1 San Antonio Spurs.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with a season-high 32 points.

For the Suns, Markieff Morris had 21 points off the bench in just 28 minutes.

In winning their fourth straight, the Grizzlies clinched their fourth straight playoff appearance.

QUOTABLE: "I was gassed. The whole team was gassed. We gave it everything we had. We knew what the game meant."
-- Grizzlies guard Mike Conley

THE STAT: The Grizzlies' Mike Miller, who averages 6.9 points, tripled his usual point total with a season-high 21.

TURNING POINT: In a hair-raising fourth quarter that featured 15 lead changes -- and 22 for the game, all in the second half -- the Suns led 89-88 with less than 2:00 left. Conley then buried a 20-foooter for a 90-89 Grizzlies lead. The Suns' Miles Plumlee scored on a tip-in for the Suns' final lead with 1:27 left. Then Conley buried a 3-pointer for the game's final lead change (93-91 Grizzlies with 1:08 left). Randolph then stole a pass from Goran Dragic then scored down low moments later. The Grizzlies had a 95-91 lead with 47 seconds left and managed to hang on, despite missing four free throws in the closing seconds.

QUOTABLE II: "A bunch of guys who weren't expected to do much got together and played as a team...We may not have had superstars...But these guys competed. That's the biggest takeaway."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek on his team's surprise season. Preseason forecasts had the Suns as one of the NBA's lowliest teams.

QUOTABLE III: "This is a culmination of everything we've been through. It's a happy locker room, a relieved locker room."
-- Grizzlies coach David Joerger, praising a team that started the season 10-15

QUOTABLE IV: "It's really tough to say something positive right now...Nobody expected us to play so good. We bulit some good chemistry with this team...So I think we're headed in the right direction."
-- Goran Dragic

QUOTABLE V: "If it's the Spurs, so be it."
-- Grizzlies' Tony Allen on the potential playoff opponent that has beaten them eight straight

QUOTABLE VI: "It was stressful. Every time we made a play, they made a play. Give them credit. They played their hearts out."
-- Mike Conley

QUOTABLE VII: "We kept playing inside-out. The guys did a great job of feeding me."
-- Zach Randolph on how the Grizzlies managed to sweep the Suns

HOT: Markieff Morris shot 10-for-16 for the Suns.

NOT: The Suns hit only 5-for-26 (19 percent) on 3-pointers.

GOOD MOVE: The Grizzlies put the game in Conley's steady hands in the closing minutes.

BAD MOVE: The Suns put the sizzling Morris, who was scoring inside and out, on the bench down the stretch and kept in his twin brother Marcus Morris.

IN THE ARENA: The game was a sellout, the Suns' second straight and fourth of the season.

ROOKIE WATCH: In this must-win game, the Suns' Alex Len, the No. 5 overall pick in last year's Draft, did not play. The backup center behind Plumlee was journeyman Shavlik Randolph.

NOTABLE: For the second straight year, P.J. Tucker won the Dan Majerle Hustle Award for the Suns. Tucker is the first player to win the award in consecutive years...Only three teams have ever missed the playoffs when winning 48-plus games. Two have been Suns' teams (49 in 1971-72 and 48 in 1970-71). The other was Golden State (48 in 2007-08)...The Grizzlies were the only team to go 4-0 vs. the Suns....The Suns' Gerald Green, a candidate for the most improved player, is averaging 15.8 points, almost exactly double his career 8.0 average. His uptick is not simply the matter of more playing time. He is averaging 26.6 points per 48 minutes, up signficantly from his carer mark of 22.0...The Suns are 16-0 when both Dragic and Eric Bledsoe score 16 points. In this game, Dragic scored 14 and Bledsoe had 13...Dragic may narrowly miss the chance to become one of the few players in NBA history to average 20 points and six assists (though he's currently at 5.9) while shooting more than 50 percent from the floor, including 40 percent from 3-point range. The only players to do this are LeBron James last season and Larry Bird three times (1984-85, '86-87, '87-88)....Markieff Morris is the only NBA reserve (min. 25 games) to average 13 points and six rebounds. He has scored 1,100 points off the bench, most by far in the NBA. The only other Suns do score 1,100 off the bench were Eddie Johnson (1,339 in 1988-89) and Dan Majerle (1,143 in 1991-92).

UP NEXT: For the Grizzlies, Wednesday vs. Dallas. For the Suns, Wednesday @ Sacramento.
