Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Things are not getting any easier for the Memphis Grizzlies. In their second game under new coach Hubie Brown, the Grizzlies remained the NBA's only winless team, suffering a 111-93 loss to the Chicago Bulls. Already facing the challenges of being 0-10 in a division that features the 10-0 Dallas Mavericks, the Grizzlies are trying to learn as they go. "It's hard," said Memphis forward Pau Gasol, who had 14 points and five assists. "Everybody feels like we're on a new team where we don't know anybody. There's a lot of new stuff and a lot of learning to do and it's going to take a lot of time to assimilate all the new things that coach wants us to do." While they have struggled and have lots to learn, the Grizzlies know that they have too much talent to lose every game they play. "We're all professionals here and we're compensated very handsomely to perform a job," said Grizzlies forward Shane Battier, who scored 12 points off the bench. "We're not doing it. We're letting down our organization, our teammates, our fans and there should be some accountability." The Grizzlies have won only once in eight all-time trips to Chicago and were playing for the second time in as many nights. Memphis suffered a 99-95 home to Minnesota on Friday in Brown's first game as an NBA coach since 1986. Memphis has had trouble on defense all season and could not find a way to stop either Jalen Rose or Donyell Marshall. Each scored 31 points to help the Bulls avoid a three-game losing streak and leave for a six-game road trip on a good note. It's difficult for (the players) and us, the staff," Brown said. "This is like our fourth day together. Asking them to beat the Bulls on the road with Jalen and Marshall shooting like that tonight is a lot." Rose and Marshall became the first Bulls duo to score over 30 points apiece since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen each had 33 on March 22, 1998 at Toronto. "Donyell and Jalen have been great for us," Chicago rookie Jay Williams said. "With me being a point guard, it is great to have guys who can finish every time. I got a lot of assists tonight to Jalen feeding off screens." Williams outperformed Battier, his former college teammate, in their first meeting as professionals. Williams collected 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 12 assists and five rebounds. Battier also scored 12 points, making 5-of-11 shots, but had just one assist and three boards. Memphis guard Jason Williams led the Grizzlies with 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting and added seven assists. He scored nine points in the third quarter as Memphis attempted a futile rally. Williams had seven assists. The Bulls, who have struggled since Jordan's retirement after the 1997-98 season, are showing signs of life, having posted wins over Boston, New Jersey and New Orleans. Playing for new coach Bill Cartwright, Chicago is a young team that stands just ahead of Memphis on the road to respectability. "We could very easily be 6-4," Cartwright said. "We are not bounded by anything other than our inexperience. If we play within ourselves we can beat anybody. ... As we play together more we will have more of an awareness of one another. We will come to understand each other better." Four days into Brown's reign, the Grizzlies would like to begin taking similar steps. "When you come into a job like this at this point, you want to be improved by the second half of the season to compete," Brown said. "You want to get better week by week. We are playing everyone now. We want to improve over the next couple of years but now have to find out who can play."
