Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- James Posey must be sorry to see February end. Posey capped the best month of his career with 24 points, including 15 in the second half, as the Memphis Grizzlies held on for a 97-92 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Posey, who was questionable with a thigh bruise, is averaging just under 13 points per game this season but became the Grizzlies' go-to guy in February. He averaged 18.3 points on 54 percent (72-of-133) shooting this month, which he capped with five straight 20-point performances. "We want to be a special team here and turn things around and I want to do my part for the team," Posey said. "I like the system. It allows me to use my athletic ability and coach has really given me a lot of confidence on both ends of the court." "He brings effort, he bring heart, he bring hustle," Memphis forward Pau Gasol said. "He plays hard every second. There is no question he is a key to our turnaround." After winning a franchise-record 10 games in January, the Grizzlies matched the mark in February, going 10-3 for the best winning percentage in team history. "We know what we're doing, but we also know how many games are left," Gasol said. "We feel we're in a situation to really take this thing somewhere, but we need to keep showing it the next 20-something games." Posey scored seven points on 3-of-4 shooting in the third quarter as Memphis took control. The Grizzlies made 10-of-17 shots in the period while holding the Hornets to 5-of-22 shooting. They had their largest lead, 73-58, entering the fourth. New Orleans, which combined for 29 points in the second and third periods, exploded for 34 in the fourth. Baron Davis scored 16 of his 24 points in the final 12 minutes. The Hornets pulled within three points three times in the final 4:10, but the Grizzlies held on by making 10-of-14 free throws. "Baron was outstanding and he really played with a lot of heart and soul," Hornets coach Tim Floyd said. "I think we only had two field goals down the stretch. You have to get at the rim and you have to make shots without putting (them) at the line." Posey made 4-of-6 free throws and scored eight points in the fourth quarter while Bonzi Wells scored six of his 14 points in the final 3:37 as Memphis extended the franchise mark for wins to 35. That includes a team-record 23 home victories. Gasol collected 18 points and nine rebounds and Jason Williams had 15 points and eight assists for the Grizzlies, who shot just under 50 percent (37-of-75) from the floor and made 19-of-27 free throws. Davis had 24 points and 10 assists and Jamal Mashburn added 21 points and nine rebounds for New Orleans, which has lost five of its last six road games. Davis made just 11-of-26 shots and Mashburn was 9-of-24 as the Hornets shot just 41 percent (39-of-95) from the floor, including 5-of-19 from 3-point range.
