WATCH | Raptors come back to beat Grizzlies:
Toronto used a third-quarter rush, fuelled by Achiuwa hitting his first four shots in the quarter, getting the Raptors back in the game. Achiuwa had 17 points in the frame as Toronto outscored Memphis 32-21 in the quarter.
Memphis shot well throughout the first half but was hampered by ill-timed turnovers that kept the Grizzlies from building the lead beyond 14. Still, Memphis’ momentum established a 71-59 at the break with four players scoring at least 13 points.
Barnes already had 15 for Toronto.
