GRIZZLIES 1, MICHAEL 0 

Earl rules in king-sized win for Memphis.

Hubie Brown is back in the win column. So are the Memphis Grizzlies. Earl Watson came up big down the stretch as the Grizzlies became the final team in the NBA to win this season with an 85-74 victory before a full house at The Pyramid over the Washington Wizards. Off to an 0-13 start and winless in five games since Brown replaced Sidney Lowe as coach, the Grizzlies scored the game's final 11 points to finally shake some of their futility. It was Brown's first win as coach since early in the 1986 season while with the New York Knicks. Watson, who was just 7 years old the last time Brown won a game, nailed a 3-pointer with 2:36 remaining to snap a 74-74 tie. He added four free throws in the final 28 seconds to seal it. Michael Jordan scored 20 points to lead Washington, which fell apart down the stretch en route to its third straight loss.
