While you were eating turkey, the Grizzlies were preparing for the Lakers …

Grizzlies Coach Lionel Hollins held a practice on Thanksgiving. His reasoning?
“Some teams just have a tendancy for certain things,” Hollins said Friday night, after the Griz beat the Lakers, 106-98, at FedExForum. “This group, when we take a day off, it is always pulling hair or pulling teeth (to get back into a good flow). We had to come in and practice and get some work in … I just think with this group you have to do that.”
No aruging with the results. The Grizzlies improved to an NBA-best 9-2 while dropping the Lakers to 6-7. They held a 39-28 rebounding edge and outscored — outworked — them in the paint, 40-24. Zach Randolph got his 11th double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds. All the Griz starters reached double figures in points (Rudy Gay led with 21) and center Marc Gasol had a game-high 8 assists.
“Memphis is a really good team,” said Kobe Bryant, who scored 30 in the losing effort.
Lakers center Dwight Howard said Marc Gasol poses a “unique challenge,” adding, “He has a lot of confidence in his abilities, they find him, and he knows how to play.”
Howard finished with 7 points and Marc’s brother, Pau Gasol, scored just 6. Pau Gasol said the Lakers let the Grizzlies have their way: “They got into the heart of our defense way too many times.”
