Sounds like the Grizzlies could do what they wanted in this game.
Memphis' big-man duo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph played as advertised Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The powerful tandem used muscle and finesse as the Grizzlies handed the Bucks their first loss of the season, a 108-90 thrashing.

The Bucks (2-1) cut a 22-point, third-quarter deficit to seven, but Memphis responded and coasted to victory. Bucks coach Scott Skiles inserted his reserves with 6:12 remaining and the Grizzlies leading, 95-75.

"It was tough trying to stop their bigs," Bucks guard Brandon Jennings said. "They're so big and Gasol is so smart once he gets to the top of the key.

"He's able to shoot the jumper and if he doesn't have anything, he's just moving it. They're just two smart bigs and Randolph down there, he's just a beast."
