Gasol Helps End Losing Streaks

"Sometimes you inherit things," Memphis' coach Marc Iavaroni said to the Memphis Commercial Appeal in reference to the Grizzlies 12-year losing streak against the Pacers on the road. On Wednesday night Memphis ended both the 12-year streak and their recent five game losing streak. The Grizzlies were paced by leader Pau Gasol who registered 30 points and 12 rebounds. After defeating the Pacers 90-72, the Spanish import told the Memphis Commercial Appeal, "It's definitely a good way to start out the (new) year," Gasol said. "We need to continue this hard work and attitude because we've got to find some consistency."
