Memphis aim to make it five

December 22, 2012 18:24:55 UK

The Memphis Grizzlies travel to the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday evening to play the Rockets after defeating the Dallas Mavericks on Friday at the FedEx Forum.

Oklahoma's Kevin Durant lost to the Wolves.

The Grizzlies' fan showed class by giving former Memphis player O.J. Mayo a standing ovation prior to the game, but his former colleagues were less generous holding the shooting guard to 10 points on 3-of-11

Rudy Gay led the way for the home side with a game-high 26 points and both Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol had double-doubles in a well-rounded Memphis performance.

Trailing the Grizzlies by percentage points in the Southwest Division are the San Antonio Spurs who took care of the New Orleans Hornets 99-94 at the AT & T Center on Friday.

Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw combined for 25 points off the bench to add to a strong performance from Tony Parker and Tim Duncan in the starting line-up. The Spurs catch their breath on Saturday before hosting the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

The defeat at the hands of San Antonio was the Hornets 10th in a row. Saturday New Orleans returns home to welcome in the Indiana Pacers, before visiting Orlando the day after Christmas.

In Oklahoma City the Thunder don't play again until Christmas Day enjoying a full week of rest.

This past Thursday as anticipated the Thunder’s schedule and focus on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook did catch up with them as they lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 99-93 at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

The Grizzlies are 76.00 to win the NBA Championship, with the Chicago Bulls 7501.00.
