TORONTO - Toronto’s starting big men and first-string point guard were great against Memphis on Friday, but Greivis Vasquez wasn’t too far behind.

The reserve guard had a stellar outing of his own, and was a major cog in a game that could have gone either way. Up four after three quarters, the NBA’s best fourth-quarter squad turned it on once again, outscoring the tough Grizzlies 28-19 in the final frame.

That came after the team had outscored Memphis 28-20 in the second quarter, behind 12 points from Vasquez.

In the fourth, Vasquez went for five points, two assists, two rebounds and had a steal on the way to his 17 points, five rebounds, six assist finish.
