NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony led the second team, joined by guards Russell Westbrook and Tony Parker, center Marc Gasol and forward Blake Griffin.
Zach Randolph had 16 points and 14 rebounds, Marc Gasol scored 14 points and the Memphis Grizzlies won their seventh straight game, 76-72 over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.
Marc Gasol was 10 of 15 from the field, all of his points coming in the first half, as Memphis, which had seven players in double figures, won for the fourth time in the past five games.
Knicks had few answers for the Grizzlies’ big men. Is size a problem for the Knicks?
To say that ‘Sheed and the Knicks have turned out to be a great fit on and off the court would be a massive understatement.
The rivalry and trash-talk between the Knicks and Grizzlies is growing.
The U.S. men’s basketball team defended its title by fighting off another huge challenge from Spain, pulling away in the final minutes for a 107-100 victory and its second straight Olympic championship.
It’s pointless to compare the 2012 Men’s Olympic basketball roster to the 1992 “Dream Team.” USA’s current roster has their own challenge in front of them.
The NBA playoffs serve as a huge reality check for teams, showing them their true weaknesses and where they have to get better if they want to win a title.
Unfortunately for the Knicks, good size is hard to find — and doesn’t come cheap.
Zach Randolph had 21 points and a franchise-record 21 rebounds, and the Grizzlies rallied from a 16-point deficit to stun the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-93 in overtime Saturday and grab a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal.
