Nets Can’t Overcome Grizzlies
Rudy Gay scored 25 points and Tony Allen matched his season high with 21 to help the Memphis Grizzlies beat New Jersey 105-100 on Wednesday night, handing the error-prone Nets their season-high seventh straight loss.
Marreese Speights added a season-high 20 points and a career-high 18 rebounds, and the Grizzlies won for the fourth time in five games. Mike Conley had 16 points and 10 assists for the Grizzlies, who surrendered at least 100 points for only the fourth time this season.
Deron Williams scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half for the Nets, who committed four turnovers in the final 2:40 in handing the game to Memphis. Anthony Morrow added 17 points, hitting 3 of 8 from long range.
