With four preseason games left, the Memphis Grizzlies are looking to cut down on turnovers and careless mistakes.
The "preseason sloppiness" will cease, Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger said on Tuesday after the team defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 102-99 at FedExForum.
Now 2-2, the Grizzlies entered the game averaging 20 turnovers but only turned the ball over 13 times. They played without Mike Miller, Zach Randolph, Kosta Koufos, Tayshaun Prince, Willie Reed and newly-signed guard Andre Barrett. The team will play its next three tilts on the road before finishing the preseason against Houston on Oct. 25 at FedExForum.
Against Milwaukee, Quincy Pondexter topped his career single-game high of 17 points, leading all scorers with 24 points in his first start of the season.
