GRIZZLIES WIN EIGHTH IN A ROW EASING PAST BOBCATS

Times wires

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Mike Conley scored 20 and the Grizzlies beat the Bobcats 94-87 on Saturday night for their eighth consecutive victory.

Zach Randolph added 18 points and 12 rebounds, and three other players scored in double figures for the Grizzlies, who own the NBA's best record at 8-1. Rudy Gay had 16 points and Marc Gasol and Tony Allen scored 12 apiece.

Memphis led by as many as 17 points in the fourth quarter.

Byron Mullens scored 18 and Kemba Walker added 17 for the Bobcats, who cut the Grizzlies' lead to five points three times in the final period, the last at 92-87 on Bismack Biyombo's dunk with 13 seconds remaining.

Memphis, which ended the Knicks' undefeated run Friday night, increased a nine-point halftime lead to 77-60 on Randolph's layup with 10:52 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Game highlights: Chris Bosh scored 24, LeBron James added 21 despite flulike symptoms and the Heat closed a six-game road trip with a 97-88 victory over the Suns. The Heat was without Dwyane Wade for the second game in a row because of a left foot injury. ... Blake Griffin scored 26 and grabbed 10 rebounds as the host Clippers routed the Bulls 101-80 for their fifth straight victory. ... Al Jefferson scored 21 and the Jazz kept the host Wizards winless 83-76. Washington became only the second team in NBA history to start 0-8 in back-to-back seasons. ... Rajon Rondo, returning from a sprained right ankle, tied his season high with 20 assists as the host Celtics beat the Raptors 107-89. ... Manu Ginobili had 20 points and the host Spurs set a season high for points in a 126-100 victory over the Nuggets.

Around the league: For months, speculation surrounding Lakers forward Pau Gasol had him eventually heading to the Hawks for Josh Smith. But ESPN reported the Hawks are not interested in letting Smith, 26, go for the 32-year-old Gasol. Meanwhile, the Lakers said point guard Steve Nash will be out at least another week because of the fracture his left leg. They had hoped to have him back today.
