Grizzlies at Bucks final score: Memphis wins fourth straight 82-77


The Memphis Grizzlies got 15 points apiece from Mike Conley and James Johnson as they defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 82-77 on Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Grizzlies overcame a bad shooting night (they shot 33-of-82 (40.2%) from the field, five-of-20 (25.0%) from three and 11-of-18 (61.1%) from the free throw line) and a stinker from Zach Randolph, who finished with six points on two-of-10 shooting, to rally for the victory.

The win moved the Grizzlies back to .500 for the first time in over a month.

In his second game back, Marc Gasol did not score in 14 minutes.  Ed Davis picked up the slack, going for 14 points and nine rebounds in just 21 minutes off of the bench.

Brandon Knight exploded for 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting to lead all scorers for the Bucks. However, he had virtually no help. The other nine Bucks players who saw action combined for 50 points on 21-of-65 shooting (32.3%).

Larry Sanders had 10 points and 12 rebounds while Ersan Ilyasova added four points and 13 rebounds.

The Grizzlies are now 19-19 while the Bucks are just 7-31.
