The Memphis Grizzlies, predictably, dropped another road game. This time blowing a 14-point 4th quarter lead. Make no mistake, the Grizzlies were shorthanded without Joakim Noah (sore knee), Mike Conley (rest), and the usual missing crew including Jaren Jackson, Dillon Brooks, and Kyle Anderson (those 3 out for the season essentially).

The available Grizzlies certainly battled and there were some nice spots for Memphis including another Jonas Valanciunas double-double 23-point/24-rebound effort, breakout performances for underachieving Justin Holiday (22 points) and Chandler Parsons (17 points), and a Tyler Dorsey 43-minute 29-point blitz. But it wasn't enough.
