ORLANDO, Fla. -- Mike Miller had 19 points and 11 rebounds, Ed Davis added 16 points and 10 boards, and the Memphis Grizzlies earned their third straight preseason win with a 97-91 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Miller played 30 minutes, shooting 7 of 10. He took a hard fall on a shot attempt early in the fourth quarter, but was able to remain in the game.

Rookie Victor Oladipo led the Magic with 22 points. Nik Vucevic played 26 minutes and finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out in the third quarter.

Both teams played their starters well into the third, with the Magic briefly taking the lead. The Grizzlies recovered and stretched their advantage to as many as 15.

Orlando played without projected starting forward Tobias Harris, who was resting a sore ankle.
