GRIZ TAKE BUCKS FOR FIFTH STRAIGHT HOME WIN 

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.
