MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Marc Gasol had 20 points and nine rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies built a 30-point lead in the second half en route to a 101-77 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.


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.


Brook Lopez led the Nets with 18 points, while Deron Williams scored 12, adding six assists. Joe Johnson and Reggie Evans scored 11 points each, with Evans grabbing 10 rebounds.


Hawks 123, Celtics 111

ATLANTA — Kyle Korver scored 27 points and the Atlanta Hawks overcame a 27-point deficit in the first half to beat Boston in double-overtime, handing the Celtics their sixth straight loss.


Jeff Teague had 23 points for Atlanta before fouling out in the first overtime. Al Horford had 24 points and 13 rebounds. Josh Smith, who opened the second overtime with a three-point play, had 17 points and 14 rebounds.


Wizards 114, Timberwolves 101

WASHINGTON — John Wall had 14 points and five assists in his first start of the season, and the no-longer-last Washington Wizards finally hit double digits in wins with a victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.



Cavaliers 113, Bucks 108

CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving scored 35 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 20-point deficit in the third quarter to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks.


Irving, voted an Eastern Conference reserve for next month's All-Star Game in Houston on Thursday, 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.


Heat 110, Pistons 88

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 29 points and sparked a pivotal run to help the Miami Heat earn their fourth victory in a row by beating the Detroit Pistons.


The Heat got even for a loss at Detroit on Dec. 28. They improved to 18-3 at home, while the Pistons fell to 4-16 on the road.




Spurs 113, Mavericks 107

DALLAS — Tony Parker returned from a cut above the same eye he injured in a nightclub incident last summer and scored 23 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a victory over the Dallas Mavericks.


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.


Tim Duncan stayed home with a sore right knee, but DeJuan Blair made up for his absence by scoring a season-high 22 points. Rodrigue Beaubois led the Mavericks with a season-high 19 points.


Rockets 100, Hornets 82

NEW ORLEANS — First-time All-Star James Harden had 30 points and the Houston Rockets broke out of their worst slump of the season by beating the New Orleans Hornets.


The Rockets, who had lost eight of nine and trailed by double digits in 12 straight games, led almost all the way this time. Harden scored 10 points and Patrick Patterson had six during a 16-2 run early in the third quarter as Houston took control, going ahead 64-46.



Bulls 103, Warriors 87

CHICAGO — Kirk Hinrich scored a season-high 25 points, hitting six of seven three-pointers in the Chicago Bulls' victory over the Golden State Warriors.


Nate Robinson added 22 points off the bench in the Bulls' third straight victory.
