=== Memphis Grizzlies Team Report – April 3 ===
(Sports Network) – James Posey poured in a game-high 32 points to lead the
Memphis Grizzlies to a 109-99 win over Phoenix at The Pyramid. Jason Williams
chipped in 17 points and handed out nine assists for the Grizzlies, who won
for the seventh straight game.
With the win, Memphis remained 1 1/2 games behind San Antonio for the fourth
spot in the Western Conference playoff race.
Stromile Swift added 11 points and nine rebounds in the winning effort.
On the injury front center Lorenzen Wright returned to the lineup after
missing the previous 13 games with a knee injury and netted seven points and
six rebounds in 17 minutes.
However, Bonzi Wells left the game with back spasms in the second half. He is
questionable for Sunday’s game against Minnesota.

seven of eight and eight of their last 10 on the road and is 19-17 away from
home this season.

dropped 17 of 19 and 27 of the last 30 meetings. The Grizzlies have also been
atrocious on the road in this series and are 2-15 all-time in Minnesota.
