Game Review | Grizzlies 108, Bucks 90: Stats, video, and news roundup

A combination of poor shooting and porous defense had predictable results for the Bucks on Wednesday, as their modest two game winning streak came crashing to a halt against the punishing Grizzly frontline.

Not a good night to be a Bucks fan.

Just as early season optimism was beginning to percolate, the Bucks had to lay an egg against the Grizzlies, didn't they? The Bucks led early, but Memphis reeled off a 9-0 run to start the second quarter and never really looked back, leading most of the second half by double-digit points. It was a balanced effort from the Grizzlies, who got between 13 and 18 points from five guys, including 18 (9/13 fg) from resident Buck killer Marreese Speights.

While Beno Udrih (foot contusion) watched from the sidelines, the Bucks' starting backcourt of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings put on a gimme-missing clinic, bricking way too many makeable buckets around the hoop en route to an 11-38 shooting night. Hey, this is what can happens when your offense relies so heavily on two guys who don't score even vaguely efficiently. The news was better for Larry Sanders, who was again all energy (for better or worse) en route to 10 points, 11 boads and three blocks.
