Memphis' Jerryd Bayless goes up for a dunk as Philadelphia's Spencer Hawes looks on. Bayless had a season-high 21 points in a win Monday.

PHILADELPHIA — Marc Gasol scored a season-high 27 points and Rudy Gay had 26 to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 103-100 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Jerryd Bayless scored a season-high 21 points to help the Grizzlies win without point guard Mike Conley, out with a sprained left ankle.

The Grizzlies rallied from 17 down to take control late in the fourth. Bayless missed a jumper, Gay grabbed the rebound and made it 101-100 on a bucket with 13.3 seconds left. Philadelphia’s Thaddeus Young missed a short attempt in front of the basket and the Grizzlies grabbed the rebound.

Gay was fouled and made both free throws for a three-point cushion.

Nick Young couldn’t get the tying shot off at the buzzer for the Sixers.

Evan Turner scored a season-high 27 points, Thaddeus Young had 23, and Jrue Holiday added 18 points and 10 assists.

KINGS 96, WIZARDS 94

In Washington, Isaiah Thomas made a floater with a second to play, capping a seesaw finish as Sacramento broke a four-game losing streak with a 96-94 win over Washington.

Thomas dribbled down the clock after the Wizards tied the game on Martell Webster’s short jumper with 7.9 seconds to play, then drove down the middle and put the ball in with a soft touch from 9 feet.

NETS 97, MAGIC 77

In New York, Deron Williams had 20 points and nine assists, and Brooklyn beat Orlando for their eighth consecutive home victory.

The Nets rebounded from their first two-game losing streak under P.J. Carlesimo, finishing off a four-game sweep of the Magic, who dropped their sixth in a row.

Brook Lopez scored 16 points and Joe Johnson had 13 for the Nets, who tied a franchise record with their 11th victory in January and can break it when they host the NBA champion Miami Heat on Wednesday.

BULLS 93, BOBCATS 85

In Chicago, Jimmy Butler scored a career-high 19 points and Nate Robinson added 15 as Chicago defeated Charlotte.

Luol Deng returned to the Bulls’ lineup after missing five games with a hamstring injury, and scored 12 points in 31 minutes. The Bulls won three of five without Deng as his absence was eased by the strong play of Butler, who returned to a reserve
role.

Joakim Noah finished with 13 points, 18 rebounds and seven assists to help Central Division-leading Chicago win for the seventh time in its past nine games.

WARRIORS 114, RAPTORS 102

In Toronto, David Lee had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Stephen Curry scored 17 points before leaving with a injury, and Golden State beat Toronto.

Klay Thompson scored 19 points, Carl Landry had six of his 12 points in the fourth quarter and Andrew Bogut returned from an injury to also score 12 as the Warriors earned their first victory in four games against Eastern Conference opponents this month.

Harrison Barnes and Jarrett Jack each scored 14 for Golden State, which wraps up a four-game road trip at Cleveland today.
