Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- In a matchup that tested each team's pride, Pau Gasol and the Memphis Grizzlies showed plenty of it against the Houston Rockets.

Gasol continued his push for NBA Rookie of the Year with a career-high 32 points as the Grizzlies never trailed and cruised to a 99-81 victory over the Rockets.

Both teams are playing for lottery picks. Memphis (20-55) is on pace for the fifth 60-loss season in franchise history, while Houston (27-48) is approaching 50 losses for the first time since 1983-84.

Houston, which was pushed around by San Antonio on Thursday, experienced the same fate against Memphis in the first half. Gasol scored the first four points of the game and had 18 at halftime as the Grizzlies led, 60-49.

Gasol made 12-of-24 shots and collected 14 rebounds as he surpassed his previous best of 31 points on January 10 against Phoenix.
