In a Nutshell
A career night, including five first-half three-pointers, from Wesley Matthews in his first start of the season, plus some dominating play by Andre Miller down the stretch pushed the Portland Trail Blazers to a 100-99 victory in Memphis, their eighth straight road victory against the Grizzlies.
This was a win after which both Rich Cho and Mrs. Cho should feel comfortable reading the comments.
Stats of the Night
Aside from Matthew's treys, Camby's boards and Gasol's impotence mentioned above...
- 25 assists on 40 baskets for Portland.
- Memphis's bench was largely ineffective, shooting a combined 5-18. They were unable to take advantage of Portland's shallow bench, which combined for 5-17.
Links and Notes
Head over to Straight Outta Vancouver for the Memphis side of things.
The Blazers improve to 7-5 on the year. The Grizzlies fall to 4-8.
