Toronto
Memphis

[MEMPHIS] — The Memphis Grizzlies played host to the Toronto Raptors last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 105-120 loss has the Grizz and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps Memphis's record down to 11-8 on the season, while the victory gives Toronto a 12-6 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Grizzlies would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

On this night it was Kyle Lowry leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 29 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 37 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Raptors managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Lowry keeps producing at this rate and Toronto keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Memphis didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, JaMychal Green did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 16 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Grizzlies can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Memphis wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Orlando Magic. The Raptors, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Los Angeles Lakers.
