Published: Wednesday, Feb. 2 2011 11:33 p.m. MST

GRIZZLIES 102, TIMBERWOLVES 84: At Minneapolis, Rudy Gay had 22 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, and Zach Randolph added 23 points and 13 rebounds to lead Memphis over Minnesota.

Sam Young scored 18 points and the Grizzlies dominated the league's best rebounding team on the boards, 47-38, to win their fourth straight game.

Michael Beasley scored 19 points for the Timberwolves and Kevin Love had just 10 points and 10 rebounds, narrowly getting his 34th straight double-double. Love is hoping to make the Western Conference All-Star team, but he was thoroughly outplayed by Randolph, one of his primary competitors for a spot.

BOBCATS 97, PISTONS 87: At Auburn Hills, Mich., Stephen Jackson scored a season-high 39 points and Charlotte beat Detroit.

Former Pistons center Kwame Brown added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Detroit, which lost its fourth in a row, was missing Rodney Stuckey (shoulder) and Jason Maxiell (back). Ben Gordon led the Pistons with 20 points and Tayshaun Prince added 16.

76ERS 106, NETS 92: At Newark, N.J., Lou Williams scored 26 points and Jrue Holiday had 11 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his first career triple-double to lead Philadelphia over New Jersey.

Jodie Meeks added 10 of his 15 points in a 14-2 third-quarter run that broke the game open and led to the ejection of Nets coach Avery Johnson for arguing a non-call after Nets point guard Devin Harris apparently was fouled by Elton Brand.

Andre Iguodala added 16 points and Brand had 15 and 10 rebounds for the 76ers, who won their fifth in six games and beat the Nets for the third time in as many meetings this season.

Harris, Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries all had 16 points for New Jersey, which lost for only the second time in its past seven home games.

HAWKS 100, RAPTORS 87: At Atlanta, Joe Johnson scored a season-high 37 points, Josh Smith had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Atlanta handed Toronto its 13th straight loss.

The Hawks have won two of three and five of eight.

Toronto's losing streak is the team's longest since it dropped 13 in a row from Feb. 12-March 7, 2002.

Amir Johnson scored 20 points and DeMar DeRozan added 16 for Toronto, which dropped to 5-22 on the road.

SUNS 92, BUCKS 77: At Phoenix, Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 11 rebounds and the Suns beat icy Milwaukee for the Bucks' 23rd consecutive loss in Phoenix.

The depleted Bucks, with Andrew Bogut a game-time scratch because of a bruised knee and Drew Gooden out four to six weeks for foot surgery, shot a season-low 31 percent and had to heat up in the fourth quarter to get the number that high.

Milwaukee trailed 52-31 at the half and was down by as many as 25 in the third quarter. Trailing 71-53 after three, the Bucks started the fourth with a 12-4 run to cut it to 74-65 but got no closer.

Corey Maggette and Ersan Ilyasova each scored 15 points for the Bucks. Grant Hill scored 16 and Jared Dudley 15 for the Suns. Channing Frye added 14 points and 13 rebounds.

BULLS 106, CLIPPERS 88: At Los Angeles, Derrick Rose had 32 points and 11 assists, Luol Deng scored 26 points and Carlos Boozer had 16 points and 10 rebounds as Chicago clobbered the Clippers.

Blake Griffin had 32 points and 13 boards for Los Angeles, but he converted just 4-of-13 free throws.
