--F Zach Randolph's 20 points and 11 rebounds marked his 44th double-double of the year, which meant nothing to him because the Grizzlies lost.
"We've got to play every one of these games with playoff intensity," Randolph said. "We have to help each other on defense, talk to each other. We have to be ready every game."
--G Mike Conley didn't have a great game. He scored only 11 points, and couldn't stop Hornets' PG Chris Paul, who had 23 points and 14 assists.
Conley said maybe the Grizzlies should stop worrying about the playoff standings and focus on the game at hand.
"But that's hard to do," Conley said. "The playoff standings are in our dressing room on a wall next to the exit. It's hard not to see them. Maybe we're thinking about it too much."
