Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies still may make the playoffs, but they sure are making things interesting. With yet another chance to clinch the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot, the slumping Grizzlies lost a fourth straight game, a 97-75 setback to the San Antonio Spurs, who were led by Bruce Bowen's 15 points. Memphis (44-36) saw its lead over ninth-place Minnesota slip to 1 1/2 games - just one in the loss column - with two games remaining. The Grizzlies, who would secure a postseason berth with a win or a Timberwolves loss, host the Spurs on Monday. "We're not going to get this thing turned around unless we take it upon ourselves to do it," Memphis coach Mike Fratello said. "Nobody is going to come in and wave a magic wand and make us play better. We need to find a way to get a win and that's the bottom line. We're not the only team that's lost four in a row, and we just have to get it turned around and get one win." Memphis capped a winless four-game road trip in which it also visited West powers Dallas, Houston and Denver. After hosting the Spurs, the Grizzlies conclude their season vs. Dallas on Wednesday. "We are excited to be going home and we play a lot better at home," Memphis forward Brian Cardinal said. "Even though we have some tough games coming up, we'll feel a lot better about ourselves if we beat one of these teams. Especially going into the playoffs, it will give us a lot of confidence, because Dallas and San Antonio are two of the best teams in the league." The Grizzlies trailed by just 21-15 after one quarter but fell behind by 48-35 at the break. San Antonio pushed its advantage to 73-55 entering the fourth quarter and cruised thereafter. Memphis' deficit was 77-57 with 10:09 to play when forward James Posey was called for charging on a drive to the hoop. Overcome with frustration, he flung the ball down the court and was ejected. "We're frustrated with this effort and we have to overcome this loss and win one at home," said Grizzlies center Lorenzen Wright, who scored just five points on 1-of-10 shooting. "If we don't take care of business there, we'll be going fishing. We don't want that to happen." Pau Gasol scored 17 points to pace the Grizzlies but scored just two points after the break. No other Memphis player scored more than seven points. Six players scored in double figures for the Spurs, who shot 49 percent (35-of-71) and limited the Grizzlies to 33 percent (25-of-76). "It was a good win for us," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We played well at both ends of the court. They played good team defense. It was one of those nights where we shot well." In his second game back after missing 12 contests with a badly sprained right ankle, Tim Duncan collected 11 points and eight rebounds in 20 minutes. "I feel pretty good," Duncan said. "I am getting better every day and every game. I am still a little tentative. It will come back with time. I think that I will be feeling pretty good by the time the playoffs roll around. I am finding a rhythm with myself and our guys right now."
