Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- With the Memphis Grizzlies on the heels of a monumental road victory, Mike Miller helped the team avoid a home letdown. Miller scored eight of his 19 points during an early second-half run and recorded a clutch steal in the closing seconds as the Grizzlies posted a 99-97 victory over the reeling Golden State Warriors in a rare Tuesday matinee affair. Miller, whose 12 points helped Memphis end the league-leading San Antonio Spurs' 16-game home winning streak Saturday, hit back-to-back 3-pointers and tipped in the rebound of a miss by Jason Williams, capping an 11-0 run that gave the Grizzlies a 64-53 lead early in the third quarter. The Warriors, who own the second-worst record in the Western Conference at 16-40, used a 15-4 run capped by a layup by Baron Davis to reduce a once 16-point deficit to 96-95 with 59 seconds remaining. Golden State had a chance to take its first lead since the second quarter on its ensuing possession, but Miller stole a pass by Jason Richardson intended for Davis with 10.4 seconds left and hit both free throws to give Memphis a 98-95 lead. "There were a lot of big plays in this game, not just in the end, that helped us," Miller said. "They had a lot of scorers on the floor at the end there and were able to make a nice run. Fortunately we were able to make some plays and come up with a couple stops and get the win." Davis hit an uncontested layup with 5.8 seconds left to make it 98-97, but after a free throw by Memphis' James Posey, he missed a 3-pointer and Richardson missed a desperation turnaround jumper as time expired. "You can't ask for a better situation when you have the ball and a chance to win," Davis said. "It was a play for me or Richardson to get the ball. ... It just went in and out." "We hung on," Grizzlies coach Mike Fratello said. "We got the 16-point lead and we got tired. We started making bad decisions, getting broken down defensively, having turnovers. ... I'm glad we hung on." Shane Battier scored 15 of his season-high 25 points in the second half and grabbed 10 rebounds for Memphis, which shot 49 percent from the field (36-73). Led by Battier's 10-of-17 effort from the floor, the Grizzlies shot better than 40 percent for the first time in seven games. "Shane can play, it's no secret," Miller said. "He comes every night to play, he's a very consistent player." Brian Cardinal scored 20 points before fouling out in the fourth quarter, helping the Grizzlies win the season series with the Warriors, three games to one. His second-highest output of the season was crucial in the wake of fellow forward Stromile Swift's missing his fourth straight game with a left ankle sprain and reserve guard-forward Bonzi Wells' missing the final 2 1/2 quarters with back spasms. "The beauty of this team is that it's someone different every game," Battier said. "You know, two nights from now, it will be someone else." Richardson, who hit 5-of-6 3-pointers, scored 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter. He scored eight points during the late run for the Warriors, who lost for the fifth time in seven games. "I thought that we didn't play aggressive enough at times, and those are things that if we focus for a full 48 minutes, then this is a very different story," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "We did a poor job of closing out ... they exploited our matchup problems and did what they needed to do to win."
