Toronto
Memphis

[MEMPHIS] — The Memphis Grizzlies played host to the Toronto Raptors last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 101 to 99 Grizz victory. The win bumps Memphis's record up to 27-20 on the season, while the loss drags Toronto's down to 28-18. Though a win's a win and Grizzlies fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Marc Gasol led all players in the contest and his 42 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steals in 38 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. 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, Kyle Lowry did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Raptors. Lowry's 29 points, 4 rebounds and 8 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 Raptors, 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 Portland Trail Blazers while the visiting Raptors will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.
