Portland
Memphis

[MEMPHIS] — The Memphis Grizzlies played host to the Portland Trail Blazers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 88 to 86 Grizz victory. The win bumps Memphis's record up to 16-8 on the season, while the loss drags Portland's down to 12-12. Despite the victory, the result is somewhat hollow considering the offense that seemed to lack much of the kick it's shown so far this season. The Grizzlies will happily take the boost in the win column, but have much work to do if they want to keep padding their portfolio.

On this night it was Marc Gasol leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 36 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 34 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Gasol included - and the most important part is that the Grizzlies walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Tony Allen did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Trail Blazers. Allen's 15 points, 10 rebounds and 1 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Memphis's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Trail Blazers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Grizz will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Grizz will be a date with the Golden State Warriors while the visiting Trail Blazers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Indiana Pacers.
