Marc Gasol had five assists and four rebounds before he even scored a point.
The Grizzlies' do-all center then scored all of his 22 points through three quarters. And when the final period called for tighter defense and clutch rebounds, Gasol put himself in that mode with blinders on.
Look no further than Gasol as the poster child for the Grizzlies' selfless play as of late. His season-high point total, 12 rebounds and seven assists Wednesday night helped steer the Grizzlies' to their fourth straight win — a 93-87 victory over the never-say-die New Orleans Hornets.
But Gasol couldn't have cared less about his statistical line as he stood in the visitors' locker room at New Orleans Arena.
"The 'W' is what I care about," Gasol said. "That and we're improving every game. The numbers are for you guys to talk about."
