NBA roundup

Grizzlies 101, Nets 77

Marc Gasol had 20 points and nine rebounds and the Memphis built a 30-point lead in the second half en route to a victory over Brooklyn.

Gasol was 10 of 15 from the field, all of his points coming in the first half, as Memphis, which had seven players in double figures, won for the fourth time in the past five games.

Mike Conley made six of seven shots, including 2 of 3 outside the arc, for 14 points, while Zach Randolph had 12 points and matched Gasol's nine rebounds.

Rudy Gay, Jerryd Bayless and Tony Wroten scored 11 apiece, while Chris Johnson, on a 10-day contract with Memphis, had 10 points.

Heat 110, Pistons 88

Dwyane Wade scored 29 points and sparked a pivotal run to help Miami earn its fourth victory in a row.

Greg Monroe scored 31 points for Detroit.

Spurs 113, Mavericks 107

Tony Parker returned from a cut above the same eye he injured in a nightclub incident last summer and scored 23 points to lead San Antonio.

Parker missed about a quarter in the first half when he took three stitches above his left eye after a collision with Elton Brand on a drive. He nearly lost the eye in June when shards of glass embedded in his cornea after he got caught in a bottle-throwing melee in New York.

Irving scored 16 points in the third quarter to help Cleveland get back in the game. He added eight points down the stretch as the Cavaliers posted back-to-back wins for only the second time this season.

Cleveland, which trailed 79-59 midway through the third quarter, took a 96-95 lead on a 3-pointer by newly acquired Wayne Ellington with 6:31 to play. The basket was his first since joining the Cavaliers from Minnesota on Tuesday, and it gave Cleveland the lead for good.

Rockets 100, Hornets 82
