Default Grizzlies easily smoke the Magic

When the Grizzlies can comfortably feed an opponent a diet of dominance that includes more than 10 uninterrupted minutes of little-used, end-of-the bench players, then the game has traveled beyond lopsided.

The contest became laughable, especially when an official called Griz rookie Tony Wroten for a traveling violation after he received an inbounds pass and walked to simply allow the final 2.1 seconds to expire.

Memphis led by 32 points just three minutes earlier.

The Griz manufactured such a huge advantage in part because center Marc Gasol enjoyed racking up assists so much that he kept going back for more as if he were pouncing on a ride at Disney World. Gasol ended up with a career-high 11 assists and the Grizzlies dispatched the Orlando Magic with great ease Sunday evening, leaving Amway Center with a 108-82 victory before an announced crowd of 16,020.
