Feb. 23, 2010 - Memphis, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES - epa02050943 Memphis Grizzlies Marc Gasol (R), of Spain, defends his brother and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol (L), of Spain, at FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, USA on 23 February 2010.

The Lakers suffered their third straight loss last night as the Memphis Grizzlies overcame them by a basket, 98-96. Right now the Lakers team are one in dire straights and this brothers in arms battle between the Gasol boys ended with the younger brother standing up to his elder. Speaking of these guys this game marks only the second three game losing streak for the Lake Show after the Gasol trade (which actually involved both brothers, bet the Lakers wish they kept him now) in early 2008. Mike Conley paced the Grizz with a season high 28, 10 of which came in the crucial fourth. This moves his team to four wins at home and four wins out of five games overall. Memphis is sounding good again. Artest could of brought the game back to LA but had a clutch three blocked by Rudy Gay. The defensive king had nothing but praise for Gay's play "That was great execution. His close out was perfect ... He closed out, chopped his feet a little bit. Stayed low, didn't go totally for the head fake and recovered." Kobe led the whole floor with 29, Pau had 15 and 14 for yet another double while his brother had 10 for Memphis. Guess that 'Get back on track' marked on the white board in the Lakers dressing room won't be rubbed off yet. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
