Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies had their best half ever, then almost let Corey Maggette and the Los Angeles Clippers steal the game before recovering for a 116-111 win. Maggette scored 22 of his career-high 34 points in the second half but could not lead the Clippers to victory after they trailed by as many as 32 after 24 minutes. "It's tougher to take because we're the better team," said Maggette, who shot 10-of-19 from the field off the bench. "We should have won. I'm not saying we should have blown them out, but we should have won the game. We've been playing the last six or seven games like that." Rookie Gordan Giricek scored three of his season-high 31 points in the final minute to help seal the win for Memphis. "I believe every time I come to a game, my shot will fall," Giricek said. "Today was fine, luckily. I believe in myself and I believe I can play the way I played in Europe." The Grizzlies had a 71-46 lead at halftime, the largest intermission margin in team history, but the Clippers outscored them 40-19 in the third quarter. Maggette hit a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer at the end of the period, bringing Los Angeles within 90-86. "Our concentration and execution was totally soft because when a team gets 40 in a quarter, you're not defending a lick," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "We didn't do anything on the offensive end either." Maggette sank two more 3-pointers early in the fourth quarter to give the Clippers their first lead at 95-94. They led by as many as five points, but the Grizzlies rediscovered their form with a 9-0 run to retake the lead at 108-104 with just under three minutes left. "I loved the effort that we played with in the third quarter to get back in the game and get ahead, but we got our butts beat," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "Bottom line, it's a loss." The Clippers played without center Michael Olowokandi, who sat out with a sore knee, then lost guard Quentin Richardson to an ankle injury early in the first quarter. Los Angeles suffered its fifth straight loss. "It's up to us," Maggette said. "It's not up to anybody but us. The coaches can't go out there and play the game for us. I think everybody blames the coach. It's not the coach's fault. It's our fault." Memphis has won 10 of its last 19 games after starting the season with 13 straight defeats. The Grizzlies moved to 9-9 at home for the season. "We're really coming along and learning what it takes to win," said Memphis guard Brevin Knight, who scored four points in 10 minutes off the bench. "That's what you've got to do in this league." Rookie Drew Gooden scored 12 points off the bench for the Grizzlies. Memphis got double-doubles from Pau Gasol and Lorenzen Wright, who had 16 and 15 points, respectively, to go with 13 rebounds apiece. Elton Brand had his third straight double-double for the Clippers with 25 points and 14 rebounds.
