GRIZ TAKE BUCKS FOR FIFTH STRAIGHT HOME WIN

Wesley Person scored 14 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as the Memphis Grizzlies rallied at The Pyramid for a 95-84 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks and their franchise-record fifth consecutive home victory. Person scored 12 straight Memphis points during a game-ending 21-4 run. He gave the Grizzlies their first lead of the second half at 83-82 on a foul line jump shot with 3 1/2 minutes to go and got the lead back for good with a 3-pointer on the next possession after the Bucks briefly reclaimed the edge on Sam Cassell's floater. Person made 4-of-4 3-pointers to help Memphis come back from an 11-point deficit. The Bucks led, 76-66, with 8:56 left but made only four baskets the rest of the way. The Grizzlies are 8-7 since starting the season with 13 consecutive losses. Cassell scored 19 points on just 6-of-19 from the field for the Bucks, who shot 37 percent (32-of-86). Milwaukee has lost four times this season in which it led or was tied after three quarters.
