Memphis Grizzlies 99, Orlando Magic 95: The Morning After

  • Orlando Magic Memphis Grizzlies All-Star game
    Brian Schmitz talks about the final minute of last night's game between the Orlando Magic and the Memphis Grizzlies.

    Stan Van Gundy called the play in the huddle and before it floundered, the coach had slammed his fist into the scorer's table. The possession — and the game — finished with a thud for the Orlando Magic.

    The Magic's 99-94 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night ended with equal parts confusion and frustration with offensive and defensive breakdowns.

    Trailing 96-94 with 58.9 seconds left, Van Gundy called timeout to draw up a play off a pick-and-roll.

    "We screwed up the play," he said. "We still got to the high pick-and-roll, but we had other options before it and didn't execute it. We just didn't run the play."

    Head coach Lionel Hollins nails it with his quote.

    "We won this game with a lot of grit, toughness and perseverance." -- Griz coach Lionel Hollins, describing his team's 11th straight victory in FedExForum.
  • Zach Randolph leads Memphis Grizzlies to 11th straight home win
    Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal explains how the Grizzlies were able to defeat the Magic after being down as much as 16 points.

    The surprise will be when the Griz lose again at home with the way they are performing in their house. Memphis hasn’t lost in FedExForum since Dec. 14 when Boston escaped with a victory. Since then, the Griz have won every way imaginable in their digs. Lately, they’ve had to be the comeback kids who make clutch plays toward the end of games.

    The game was tied at 94 following a Randolph tip-in with 1:34 left. Rudy Gay then tied up Orlando’s Jameer Nelson and won a jump ball. Gay later scored a reverse layup after receiving a bounce pass from Randolph along the baseline with 58.9 seconds remaining.

    After harassing Vince Carter into a 3-point miss, the Griz put the game away.
