MEMPHIS, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Brandon Roy notched 20 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 16 as the Portland Trail Blazers dispatched the Memphis Grizzlies 93-79 Tuesday.
The Grizzlies, who were led by Marc Gasol's 20 points and eight rebounds, were reeling from the controversy surrounding guard Allen Iverson. The game marked what was supposed to be Iverson's home debut with Memphis, but after a winless five-game road trip, the likely Hall of Famer embarked on an indefinite leave of absence and is said to be considering retirement.
The Grizzlies had been starting Mike Conley over Iverson. Conley was 3-of-10 for seven points in the Memphis loss.
