Bad Loss: Final-Kings 97 Grizzlies 92

Analysis at 10AM on 92.9 Thursday/Next Game: Saturday at FedExForum vs. Suns (LIVE on 92.9 FM ESPN)

October 24, 2018 - 11:43 pm

This was supposed to be the easier game on a two-game road trip. After a surprise win Monday night in Salt Lake over the Utah Jazz, the Grizzlies looked to pounce in Sacramento. The Kings would be coming off a back-to-back in Denver. 

Instead, the Grizzlies failed to close after the 3rd quarter ended tied 71-71. Then Memphis lost the 4th quarter 26-21. They also lost Marc Gasol.

But the blame for this one may actually, ironically, land squarely on Gasol's shoulders.

One bright spot was Wayne Selden, who went for 13 points in 24 minutes. Mike Conley had 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists. But in the end the energy of the Kings caught up to the Grizzlies depth. The Grizzlies fell to 2-2 on the season.
