MEMPHIS, Tenn. >> The soft-spoken Robert Sacre who always preaches teamwork and deflects praise showed his playfully cocky side. The Lakers’ second-year center had just played a large part in securing the team’s 96-92 victory Tuesday over the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum by holding bruising forward Zach Randolph to 18 points on 7-for-22 shooting. Sacre soon relished the moments he matched up with Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill in practice where he apparently dominates.“When Pau gets mad, he starts grunting and groaning and then puts Jordan Hill under the basket,” Sacre said. “Me? Nah, not me. I make him shoot jumpers all day.”Hill interjected and playfully argued the accuracy of Sacre’s story. “No one can keep me off the offensive boards,” said Hill, though he was limited with only two points on two field goal attempts and two rebounds in eight minutes because of four fouls. “You think Robert can keep me off the offensive boards? If you believe that … ”Hill laughed playfully in disbelief. But then again, few likely would have believed Sacre could limit Randolph, whom Sacre likened to UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson for his bruising style. “He’s so physical,” said Sacre, who has climbed the depth chart this season after the Lakers selected him 60th overeall in the 2012 NBA Draft. “I try to match that physicaltiy and keep him from trying to be aggressive. I wanted to make sure he got the ball as far aaway from the basket so he had to make moves.”The approach worked. “He played fantastic,” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said of Sacre. “He comes in and plays hard and does everything we ask him to do and more.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Including shutting down Gasol and Hill in practice? That remains up for debate.Keeping faith >> When he set foot in this city nearly 3½ years ago, Xavier Henry was considered a highly touted draft prospect that could help the Memphis Grizzlies toward a deep playoff push. Henry, whom Memphis selected with the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, never did that. A right knee injury sidelined him for 35 games his rookie season. The Grizzlies then traded Henry the following year to New Orleans, where overlapping injuries buried him on the depth chart. “I was just faithful to God and stayed true to the Bible,” Henry said. “I perservered through it. I’ve been doing that so far in my career. It hasn’t been easy,”The Lakers signed Henry to a one-year deal this offseason with a partially guaranteed contract worth $884,293, and the move became a good investment. Henry only posted five points on 2 of 8 shooting in the Lakers’ win Tuesday against Memphis. But he has averaged a career-high 9.8 points on 44 percent shooting in 20.1 minutes per game. He has also shown marked improvement from November (6.8 points on 37.9 percent shooting) to December (13.9 points on 50 percent shooting). “I’m trying to solidify myself and have a great career,” Henry said. “But it doesn’t happen in a day. I can’t have too many highs or lows. It’s about pushing through the whole season.”
