The Memphis Grizzlies made the trip to Orlando to face the Magic on Tuesday, and the result was not what Memphis hoped for, as they never led in the contest.

They started out extremely slow from the field, as the Magic led 28-10 at one point in the first quarter.

Desmond Bane started the second quarter with a purpose, but he was the only one who could consistently get shots to fall, and the Grizzlies trailed by seven going into the half.

The third quarter was more of the same, as missed shots kept adding up. The Grizzlies’ ability to get to the line kept them in the game, and they trailed by six at the end of the third.

The fourth quarter was very back and fourth, as Taylor Jenkins was forced to call a timeout early on, facing an eleven-point deficit. Coming out of that timeout, Memphis went on a 10-0 run, and the game was close from there on out.

Despite an extremely close fourth quarter and the resilience of a team who could not get it going offensively as a whole, the Grizzlies fell by a final score of 109-105.

Let’s take a look at some of the studs and duds from tonight’s failed comeback loss.
