Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Rookie Drew Gooden and the Memphis Grizzlies wasted no time building on their first win. Gooden hit his first four shots en route to 23 points and the Grizzlies never trailed in a 117-99 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. Jason Williams scored a season-high 28 points without a turnover for the Grizzlies, who have won two in a row following a season-opening 13-game losing streak. Memphis has been much more competitive in the seven games since Hubie Brown replaced Sidney Lowe as coach. "I feel like we had the edge coming off the Washington win," Grizzlies guard Earl Watson said. "I think we've gained a lot of confidence and we're starting to get used to our coaching staff." This was the best performance of the season for the Grizzlies, who established highs for total points and points in a half (64) and shot a sizzling 59 percent (48-of-81) from the field. "It's a good win," Gooden said. "We've won two in a row after losing 13 in a row, so it feels good." Gooden scored eight points in an 11-0 burst that opened the game and propelled the Grizzlies to a 35-23 lead after one quarter. Memphis put together another 11-0 spurt in the third quarter, when it led by as many as 18 points. Matched up against perennial All-Star and defensive demon Gary Payton, Williams scored 11 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Grizzlies maintain a double-digit lead. "Our goal is to try to hold teams to under 24 points a quarter, and if we do that, we've got a great chance of winning," Williams said. "We did it in three out of the four tonight." Rashard Lewis scored 24 points and Desmond Mason added 22 for the SuperSonics, who had won the previous seven meetings with the Grizzlies and fell to 25-3 in the all-time series. Seattle lost in overtime at Atlanta on Tuesday and was playing for the fourth time in five nights. "We got off to a slow start and it was uphill for the rest of the night," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We knew they would come out and try to put this one away in the first quarter." Starting at power forward instead of small forward, Gooden made his first four shots. Memphis made its first eight while Seattle missed its first six. "I was much more comfortable tonight," Gooden said. "That's my natural position. I think it was the difference tonight." Lewis scored 17 points in the second quarter, helping the Sonics pull within 64-59 at halftime. But Gooden again set the tone at the outset of the second half, drilling the first 3-pointer of his career. "He pulled up for a three in transition. I had to remind him he wasn't Reggie Miller," Watson joked. Williams and Shane Battier followed with 3-pointers in a second 11-0 spurt that made it 75-59 with 9:14 left in the third quarter. The Sonics never made a serious charge thereafter. "You can't blame it on being tired," Mason said. "Every team in the league goes through the same thing at one point in time. You've just got to find a way to get through it. Your body is tired, but you've still got to play." Pau Gasol and Wesley Person added 14 points each and Battier and rookie Gordan Giricek had 12 for the Grizzlies, who made 11-of-23 3-pointers and 10-of-10 free throws. Payton had 17 points and 13 assists and Vladimir Radmanovic scored 14 points for the Sonics, who shot 48 percent (40-of-83).
