Memphis Grizzlies Team Report – December 6

=== Memphis Grizzlies Team Report – December 6 ===

(Sports Network) – Pau Gasol scored 17 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to
lead the Memphis Grizzlies over Washington, 92-77, on Friday at the Pyramid.

James Posey added 15 points and Mike Miller scored 13 for the Grizzlies, who
have won four in a row.

Newly-acquired Bonzi Wells came off the bench in his Memphis debut and chipped
in 12 points over 27 minutes as Memphis built a 20-point halftime lead and
never looked back.

The Grizzlies vaulted to a 20-point lead by halftime and carried a 68-52
advantage into the fourth quarter.

The closest Washington came was 76-69 when Steve Blake drained a three-pointer
with 5:18 remaining on the clock. But the Grizzlies followed that with five
straight points to go back ahead by double digits, and the outcome was never
in question.

Memphis, which is 4-3 at home this season, will continue their three-game
homestand on Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
