Clutch Conley 4th Quarter Propels Grizzlies to Win Over Blazers

(Postgame AUDIO w/MarShon Brooks & Bickerstaff) Final: Memphis 92 Portland 83 Next Game: Friday vs. Heat on 92.9 FM ESPN

December 12, 2018 - 9:44 pm

Memphis used their patented "Grit n' Grind" defense to hold the Portland Trail Blazers to a season-low 83 points on the way to a 92-83 win Wednesday night (12/12) at FedExForum.

Mike Conley looked the part of an NBA All-Star, especially in the 4th quarter against Porltand as he closed out a night of terrific defense, +19, 23 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds while shooting 50% from the field in 32 minutes on the court.

Marc Gasol didn't shoot well but took the shots that so many insist he needs to in order for the Grizzlies to be good long-term. Gasol finished just 4/15 and played 27 minutes.

MarShon Brooks helped the Grizzlies leverage their bench/depth to beat Portland. Brooks was 5/9 with 13 points, 3 assists, and 4 rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench (+10) to power the Grizz over Portland. Click HERE to listen to Brooks' postgame interview on 92.9 FM ESPN.
