Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies are trying harder but not doing any better. The Grizzlies cut a 29-point third-quarter deficit to four but remained the NBA's only winless team as the Sacramento Kings regrouped in time for a 99-91 victory. Memphis (0-6) looked defenseless in its first three games, allowing an average of 114.7 points per game and looked very much like last season's uninspired 23-59 squad. On Monday, the Grizzlies battled San Antonio into overtime before losing on Tim Duncan's buzzer shot. On Wednesday, they pushed Portland before taking a 94-88 setback. And in this one, they battled back after an awful start. "We talked about playing with some emotion and energy and we didn't do that the first three ballgames," Grizzlies coach Sidney Lowe said. "The last three, we started to do it." Rookie Drew Gooden led the charge with 23 points and eight rebounds as Memphis played energetic basketball in the second half. But the Grizzlies went scoreless from the field over the final 4:52 and fell to 1-14 all-time in Sacramento. "Same ol', same ol'," Gooden said. "We keep digging ourselves a big enough hole and we can't get out. I think the team defense in the first half was about the worst that you could play. "It's difficult to be 0-6. I only lost four games all last year (as a junior at Kansas) and this is a change. This is an 82-game season and things need to change from now to then." Grizzlies forward Pau Gasol, the 2002 Rookie of the Year, watched most of the second half from the bench. So did flashy point guard Jason Williams, a former King whose defense and decision-making still leaves a lot to be desired. "I told them that we weren't playing with energy or emotion," Lowe said. "I told a couple of guys they weren't defending and to get back into the ballgame, and if they didn't defend, I was going to take them out of the game and get guys into the game that were going to pick up, play with energy and play defense." "We don't have one player that's good enough, like a Kobe (Bryant) or an (Allen) Iverson, to raise this team and win the game single-handedly," Grizzlies forward Shane Battier said. "We all need each other, and collectively, we can be good." Peja Stojakovic scored 22 points, Bobby Jackson added 20 and Sacramento's other three starters had double-doubles. The Kings snapped a three-game losing streak - their longest in nearly two years - that began after a road win over Memphis six days ago. "We just got lackadaisical at the end," Jackson said. "We weren't even playing our game or being aggressive. We can't do that against a good team. Sometimes we get away with our talent." Stojakovic scored 14 points in the opening period, which ended with the Kings holding a 35-14 lead. Sacramento held a 61-41 halftime advantage, and six straight points by Chris Webber widened it to 76-47 with 7:18 left in the third quarter. Gooden came on for Gasol and scored seven points in a 10-0 run that closed the quarter and pulled Memphis within 84-74. A basket by Brevin Knight made it 90-86 with 4:52 to go, but the Grizzlies did not make another basket. "We're so frantic, when we pull the game within four points, we feel like we still need to keep going and going," Gooden said. "But we can slow down and know that it is a whole different ballgame." Three free throws by Stojakovic gave the Kings a 95-88 cushion with 2:48 left. Gooden made a foul shot, but Webber beat him to the second of two missed free throws by Vlade Divac and dunked for a 97-89 lead with 50 seconds to play. Webber had 16 points, 17 rebounds, eight assists and five blocks but suffered a left hand injury. Divac and Doug Christie each had 10 points and 10 boards for the Kings, who owned a 54-41 edge on the glass. "I remember getting a pass from someone in the paint and I couldn't even catch it," said Webber, who had the hand wrapped in ice and a bandage and was headed for X-rays. "It's going to be OK." Stromile Swift had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies. Gasol and Williams scored 11 points apiece and Knight added eight and eight assists. "If a guy from off the bench is playing harder than a starter, then he should be left in," Swift said.
