Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- One day after beating the real NBA champions, the Chicago Bulls made the Memphis Grizzlies look like champions. Pao Gasol scored 27 points and Stromile Swift added 22 as the Grizzlies set franchise marks for points in a quarter and shooting percentage en route to a 124-95 victory over the Bulls. "They kept losing the ball and turning it over time after time, so we kept in the press," said Gasol, whose team converted 22 turnovers into 31 points. "We did a good job. After four games in five days, it's kind of tough to have the team effort we had tonight. I was very impressed with the effort." The Grizzlies scored 41 points in the first quarter and shot 61 percent (48-of-79) from the field overall, breaking the previous record of 60 percent set in a 122-111 win over Indiana on March 7, 2002. Their previous mark for points in a quarter was 40 at Washington on January 16, 1998. Memphis matched a franchise mark with its 23rd victory of the season and tied another record by stretching its winning streak to five games. Last season, the Grizzlies won their 23rd game in their 82nd contest. This season, they reached the mark in their 64th outing. "Tonight, we had to play an up-tempo game and that was our game plan," Memphis coach Hubie Brown said. "In the first quarter, we wore them down. They only scored 35 points in the second half. Those 22 turnovers hurt them a lot, but of course our execution was great." Swift also grabbed 10 rebounds for his fifth straight double-double. He also has scored at least 20 points in five straight games. "He has been a monster," Memphis forward Shane Battier said. "I don't know what has gotten into him but whatever it is, we need to find out and bottle it." All five Memphis starters scored in double figures as Battier contributed 17 points and Wesley Person and Jason Williams added 16 and 11, respectively. Williams also handed out 13 assists. The starting frontcourt trio of Gasol (11-of-15), Swift (8-of-8) and Battier (7-of-12) were a combined 26-of-35 from the field. "We have all played well together," Battier said. "At different points (in the season) we have had different people step up but (until now) we haven't had a great effort from six, seven, eight different guys," Battier added. "I think that has been the big difference." After Tuesday's 116-99 home win over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Bulls' defense stayed home against the Grizzlies. "I guess when you give up a 41-point first quarter, that kind of sets the tone for the game, and it did tonight," Chicago coach Bill Cartwright said. "Offensively, we were fine. We just did an extremely poor job of being aggressive." Memphis opened a 41-29 lead after one quarter and stretched its advantage to 74-60 at intermission. It fell just short of the century mark in the third quarter, taking a 98-80 advantage into the final period. "They came out with a lot more energy and they wanted this game more than we did," Bulls forward Donyell Marshall said. "That's two games now where we've had quality wins, then came back in the second game against a lesser-quality opponent and we didn't win. The Laker win really doesn't mean anything." Eddy Curry scored 21 points for the Bulls, who dropped to 3-30 on the road. The Grizzlies made their final 10 shots in the first quarter and six in a row during one stretch in the second period. With the contest well in hand, the Grizzlies continued to press in the fourth quarter, when they led by as many as 31. "We're realizing how good we can be," Gasol said. "I just think we're playing at a great level right now. We want to keep playing this way to set the tone for next year."
