Grizzlies win, but Kings earn road cover

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Marc Gasol had 24 points and 12 rebounds, Mike Conley scored 22 points and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Sacramento Kings 108-101 on Tuesday night.

Tony Allen added a season-high 19 points to help the Grizzlies win their sixth straight over the Kings at home. Memphis entered the All-Star break with a three-game win streak, their longest in more than a month.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points and Tyreke Evans had 20 for the Kings, who were attempting to win three straight for the first time in more than two months.

Jerryd Bayless made a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the third quarter to give Memphis an 84-73 lead. The Grizzlies boosted their advantage to 13 on several occasions early in the fourth and withstood a late comeback try by the Kings, who pulled to 99-93 with 4:19 to go on a layup by Evans.

Memphis recovered as Gasol and Conley combined to score the team's final nine points. Conley made four free throws and a runner in the lane and Gasol hit a free throw and field goal.

Memphis shot 55 percent to overcome 19 turnovers.

The Grizzlies built a 56-47 lead with 40 seconds remaining in the second quarter, but were unable to maintain it. The Kings scored eight points in the final 35 seconds and pulled to 58-55 at halftime.

Gasol had 14 points and Allen had 12 in the first two quarters as Memphis shot 55 percent.

NOTES: Grizzlies reserve forward Quincy Pondexter, who returned Sunday in a win over Minnesota after missing 22 games with a sprained left MCL, did not play against the Kings. Memphis coach Lionel Hollins preferred to give him additional time to recover. ... Since acquiring Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye and Ed Davis in a late-January trade, the Grizzlies have become more efficient distributing the ball. The Grizzlies entered Tuesday's game with 121 assists on their previous 186 field goals made, fourth-best in the league during that span. Memphis had 21 assists on 41 field goals against the Kings. ... Sacramento is 5-22 on the road this season.
