Grizzlies Cruise to Second Preseason Win, Defeat New Zealand Breakers 108-94

The Memphis Grizzlies improved to 2-0 on the preseason Tuesday with a wire-to-wire 108-94 victory over the New Zealand Breakers at FedExForum.

Memphis opened the game on a tear, jumping out to a 22-6 lead in the first 7:58 of play and holding the Breakers to 6-of-23 shooting (26.1 percent) in the opening frame. However, after the Grizzlies built a 19-point halftime lead, the Breakers turned the tide in the third by going on a 11-0 run over a span of 2:08 to close the gap to 66-60 with 3:02 remaining in the third. Memphis then responded with an 18-5 run over the next 4:47 to push the lead back to 19 (84-65) and remained in control the rest of the way, keeping the lead in double digits.
