Grizzlies at Wizards final score: Memphis holds on for 110-104 win

Tayshaun Prince had his biggest game of the season, scoring a season-high 21 points on eight-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, helping the Memphis Grizzlies hold off the Washington Wizards for a 110-104 victory at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Monday night.

Zach Randolph added 16 points and 10 rebounds and Mike Conley scored 20 points and dished out seven assists for the Grizzlies.

The game was highly entertaining in the fourth quarter. The Grizzlies extended a five-point lead to 15 by outscoring the Wizards 29-19 in the third quarter, but the Wizards rallied back, cutting a 17-point fourth quarter lead to seven on a John Wall three-pointer with 2:09 to go. Mike Miller and Wall then traded three-pointers and after a Trevor Ariza steal, rookie Otto Porter, Jr.’s three cut the lead to four with 1:16 to go. On the other end, Prince answered with a jumper and after a few shaky trips to the free throw line, the Grizzlies closed the game out.

Wall had 23 points, nine assists to lead the Wizards while Bradley Beal scored 21, Marcin Gortat had 16 points and eight rebounds and Ariza and Trevor Booker added 16 points apiece.

The win improves the Grizzlies to 34-25 while the Wizards fall to 31-29.
