Memphis Grizzlies Team Report – January 16

=== Memphis Grizzlies Team Report – January 16 ===

(Sports Network) – James Posey scored 16 of his 23 points in the fourth
quarter, leading the Memphis Grizzlies to a 108-93 win over the Chicago Bulls
on Thursday at The Pyramid.

Posey hit 10-of-10 from the free throw line in the final period to help the
Grizzlies capture their third straight win. Jason Williams added 20 points and
nine assists, and the Grizzlies have now won five of their last six following
a seven-game skid. Memphis has scored 100 points or more in each of the last
six games, a franchise record.

“This system is wide open and under control. We get a lot of easy buckets in
our system,” Posey explained. “The team plays very unselfish and we pass the
ball well.”

Mike Miller and Bonzi Wells each chipped in 12 points for Memphis, which won
its third straight at home to improve to 12-5 as the host this season.

“The team played good tonight. Posey came up big for us in the fourth. It’s
good that we can finish out games like this,” Wells said of the Grizzlies’
effort.

Memphis’ Pau Gasol hit just 4-of-12 shots from the field and ended with 11
points.

The Grizzlies are off until Saturday when they visit Allen Iverson and the
Philadelphia 76ers.
