Rudy Gay shines against Knicks Jan. 12
Memphis Commercial Appeal:
Rudy Gay took flight and it wasn’t to deliver a tomahawk dunk during his finest moment.
The Grizzlies’ versatile forward caught everyone in FedExForum by surprise when he elevated and blocked New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler’s dunk attempt late in the third quarter. O.J. Mayo picked up the deflection as the action shifted toward Memphis’ end of the court.
The Grizzlies swung the ball around until it reached Gay, who calmly buried a 3-pointer that extended their lead to 24 points.
Gay just stood there, frozen in his shooting motion.
It was about the only time any Griz stood still Thursday night as they ended a three-game losing streak with a 94-83 victory before 15,324 and a national television audience watching on TNT.
