Grizzlies Knock Off Jazz; Gasol Has Triple-Double 

The Memphis Grizzlies won their third road game of the year Wednesday night, beating the Utah Jazz 132-130, as Eddie Jones hit a jumper at the buzzer at the end of overtime.

Chucky Atkins, subbing for an injured Damon Stoudamire, tossed in 29 points and had 15 assists; Pau Gasol had 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists.

Utah's Mehmet Okur hit three three-pointers near the end of overtime to bring Utah back to a 130-130 tie with seven seconds left. Jones then took the inbounds pass, drove to the right side of the lane and swished the game-winner.

Box score and recap. And everybody's talking about the Griz.
