Grizzlies go for another win vs. Magic

( - The Memphis Grizzlies will try to run their winning streak to three games on Monday when they welcome the Orlando Magic to FedExForum.

The Grizzlies will complete a five-game homestand on Monday night which started with a victory against the Portland Trail Blazers, then led to a loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Following the loss, the Grizz have rattled off two straight wins. Memphis bested the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers and following Monday's tilt with the Magic, it will head to Dallas for a rematch with the Mavericks.

On Saturday, the Grizzlies defeated the 76ers with relative ease, 101-83.

Zach Randolph registered 17 points with 14 rebounds to pace the Grizzlies. Jeff Green led the Grizzlies with 18 points and Vince Carter added 13 points off the bench.

"Honestly I don't think we dominated that much," Grizzlies center Marc Gasol said. "I felt that we could have done a better job."

The Grizzlies shot 46.8 percent from the field and forced 24 Philadelphia turnovers. All 11 Memphis players who saw action on Saturday scored at least four points.

The Magic are in a rut, losing five straight and two in a row on the road.

On Sunday, the Magic blew a nine-point lead with eight minutes to go en route to a 106-99 loss at home to the Indiana Pacers.

Nikola Vucevic finished with 27 points and Victor Oladipo recorded 18 in the Magic's defeat, which dropped Orlando to 5-15 at home. Tobias Harris scored 11 in a reserve role and Elfrid Payton added 10.

The Pacers were trailing 88-79 when Damjan Rudez began to catch fire, with the Croatian forward burying two 3-pointers around a triple from teammate C.J. Watson before driving the lane for a game-tying uncontested dunk with 5:51 left.

Rudez sank another trey a minute later, and Ian Mahinmi finished off a 16-3 Indiana run with a slam off a Watson feed to give the Pacers a 95-91 lead with 4:28 to go.

Back-to-back baskets from Payton then pulled Orlando back even, but Hill got into the lane to sink a tie-breaking layup shortly thereafter and put down a run-out slam after David West forced a Magic turnover for a 101-97 edge with 1:45 to play.

"You can't have the mistakes we had late in the game," Vucevic said. "Those mistakes cost us."

Rudez came through with the dagger in the final moments, draining another 3- pointer that put Indiana up 105-99 with 21.2 seconds showing.

Following Monday's contest, the Magic play two straight at home.

The Grizzlies defeated the Magic by nine in Orlando on Jan. 16 and have won six straight in this series as the host. Memphis' winning streak overall against Orlando is at seven.
