December 27th, 2014 by Matthew Schmidt Leave a reply »
Mike Conley scored 24 points, Marc Gasol added 22 and the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a four-game losing streak with a 103-95 win over the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena Saturday night.

The Grizzlies were without Zach Randolph, who sat his fourth straight game with a sore knee. The Heat continued to be without Chris Bosh, who remains out with a calf injury.

Memphis led this game by as much as 19 points in the third quarter, but Miami fought back, trimming the lead to one. The Heat had numerous opportunities to grab the lead, but did not do it as the Grizzlies led wire-to-wire.

Memphis shot 47 percent from the floor and went 28-of-37 from the free-throw line. It made its last 10 foul shots to seal the game.

Dwyane Wade led Miami with 25 points and Danny Granger was spectacular off the bench with 18. However, the Heat got little production from their point guards, as Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole combined to shoot 5-for-20.

The Heat hit on 51 percent of their shots, but they only made 15 free throws, which ended up being the difference in the game.
