Grizzlies Hold Off Nets' Comeback

New, comments

The Nets have had seven tries at a winning streak, and they've failed all seven times. The latest attempt came Monday night in Memphis when a pair of second-half comebacks both fell short. It was a close game for the first 17 minutes, but the Grizzlies then went on a 23-4 run to take control. The Nets came almost all the way back in the third, cutting what was a 21-point lead down to two. Their only chance to tie came late in the fourth, when they had the ball down three with 2:30 left, but they came up empty and couldn't get a stop after that. Memphis shot 47 percent from the field and had 16 offensive rebounds. Courtney Lee led the Nets with a career-high 30 points, Devin Harris added 28, and Terrence Williams had another strong game (14 points, six rebounds and six assists) off the bench, but Brook Lopez had as many turnovers (three) as field goals and was outplayed by Marc Gasol, particularly in the first half. Gasol finished with 19 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks while Rudy Gay and Mike Conley had 21 each. Zach Randolph (back) was a late scratch.
