Result: Memphis Grizzlies power past Portland Trail Blazers

Beno Udrih stars off the bench as the Memphis Grizzlies cruise to victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in the first game of their NBA playoff series.

The Memphis Grizzlies never trailed in their convincing 100-86 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on the second night of the NBA playoffs yesterday.

In the Western Conference's fourth-versus-fifth matchup, the Grizzlies have homecourt advantage because of their better regular-season record, even though Portland claimed the fourth seed for being the Northwest division winners.

Memphis made that advantage pay with a dominant display at FedExForum, despite starting point-guard Mike Conley dealing with a foot injury.

His back-up Beno Udrih stepped up with 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, hitting his first six shots of the contest and finishing with 9-14 shooting.

Portland's star duo of LaMarcus Aldridge (13-34) and Damian Lillard (5-21) both struggled against Memphis's defence.

The Blazers will hope to level the series in game two, also in Memphis, on Wednesday night.
