MILWAUKEE ? Mike Conley and Marc Gasol provided the leadership and production to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a nail-biting 116-113 victory on Wednesday night at the spanking new Fiserv Forum.
It was the Bucks' first home loss of the season in their $524 million arena right next door to the BMO Harris Bradley Center, which is due for demolition sometime this year.
The 7-foot-1 Gasol, garnered 29 points on 3-of-6 from the 3 point line and 10-of-18 from the field overall. Gasol also grabbed five board. Conley, a 12 year veteran , added 26 points by hitting 9-for-16 from the field, 2-for-6 from beyond the arc, and 6-of-8 from the charity strip. Conley also dished four dimes.
It was open season for Gianni Antetokounmpo as he kept the limping Bucks alive with a spectacular night of shooting. The Greek Freak committed six turnovers and missed a pair of 3-point attempts but he was nearly perfect from the free-throw line, hitting 11-of-12.
Khris Middleton was perfect from the free-throw line, 7-for-7, and scored 25 points, most points coming from the field where he shot 50% (8-for-16).
The Bucks trailed for the majority of the game until a vicious 27-4 run in the second half that catapulted them ahead of the Grizzlies but they could not hold on against Memphis? lock-down veteran defenders, Gasol and Conley.
