n some ways, the Grizzlies' final game before this weekend's All-Star break summed up how they navigated through the first half of a trying season.

Memphis beat the Philadelphia 76ers, 89-76, Tuesday night in FedExForum by relying on just about every active player, and defensive intensity that caused problems at the start and then sealed the win.

"We started out shaky this season," Griz forward Rudy Gay said, "but we picked it up and showed our will."
