Grizzlies check it up with Nets

( - The Memphis Grizzlies got back into the win column in a very big way last time out and will try to start a new streak Tuesday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets at FedExForum.

The Grizzlies had an eight-game winning streak snapped on Friday night in Minnesota, but collected a huge victory Sunday, a 94-88 home triumph over the Atlanta Hawks.

Mike Conley scored 21 points and the Grizzlies scored eight of the final 10 points to down the Hawks in a playoff-like atmosphere at FedExForum. The Grizzlies' late push over the final three minutes helped them rebound from Friday's surprising loss to the Timberwolves.

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each posted double-doubles and combined for 27 points and 25 rebounds for Memphis, which shot 19-of-21 from the foul line and won the rebounding battle 55-37.

"Really good win for us against a very good team. We all know how good they are," Grizzlies coach David Joerger said.

Jeff Green finished with 11 points and Kosta Koufos chipped in 10 off the bench.

Memphis shot under 40 percent for the game and just over 23 percent from behind the 3-point arc. They made nine more free throws than Atlanta and committed three less turnovers.

The Grizzlies play in Oklahoma City on Wednesday and continue their road trip after the break against the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings.

The Nets know a little something about road trips. They are 0-2 on this eight- game sojourn, which ends for the All-Star break following Tuesday's game in Memphis.

After the All-Star weekend, which Brooklyn co-hosts with the New York Knicks, the Nets visit the Lakers, Nuggets, Pelicans, Rockets and Mavericks.

The Nets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks, 103-97, on Monday night.

Jarrett Jack pumped in 26 points with eight assists and Joe Johnson accounted for 19 points to go along with six assists for the Nets, who have lost two straight since a three-game winning streak.

The Nets cut their deficit to 89-84 at the midway point of the fourth.

Milwaukee went up 11 after a Jerryd Bayless layup with over two minutes left prior to Jack netting five points in a 23-second span. Brook Lopez was whistled for a technical foul after a shooting foul on Zaza Pachulia and the Bucks made 2-of-3 from the line to restore an eight-point cushion.

"We had our chances, played well," said Nets coach Lionel Hollins. "We just couldn't make plays when we needed to."

The Grizzlies beat the Nets in Brooklyn on Jan. 14 after the Nets swept last season's series. The two teams have split the last eight meetings on Beale Street.
