Denver
Memphis

[MEMPHIS] — The Memphis Grizzlies played host to the Denver Nuggets last night and the homeside took care of business. A 119-99 win has the Grizz and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Memphis's record up to 30-21 on the season, while the loss drags Denver's down to 21-27. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Grizzlies. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Marc Gasol's 24 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 24 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. 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, Vince Carter did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Nuggets. Carter's 14 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Grizzlies walking away victorious was Memphis's ability to limit Denver's offensive output. By holding the Nuggs to less than they usually produce the Grizzlies made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Grizz will be a date with the Oklahoma City Thunder while the visiting Nuggets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.
