Grizzlies put away Real Madrid in preseason opener
Real Madrid coach Pablo Laso acknowledged that he took solace in what the Grizzlies were forced to do with six minutes left Saturday night during their international friendly.
After watching a 16-point lead dwindle to five, the Grizzlies' starters reconvened on the court in FedExForum and polished off a 105-93 victory in the first of eight preseason games scheduled this month.
Laso seemed perfectly happy with moral victory, allowing both coaches to leave the building extremely pleased.
Griz coach Lionel Hollins is adamant that chemistry must be built every season. And the continuity between the starting group was on display down the stretch.
