NBA ROUNDUP

Grizzlies rout Heat behind Rudy Gay's 41 points

Gay's career-high total leads Memphis to a surprisingly easy road victory, 118-90.

December 14, 2009

Memphis 118, at Miami 90: Rudy Gay scored a career-high 41 points, Marc Gasol made all seven of his shots on the way to a 16-point, 15-rebound effort, and the Grizzlies enjoyed a rare road blowout. Gay made 15 of 28 shots in topping his previous career best by five points, and became just the fourth player since January 2007 to score at least 40 against Miami in a regular-season game. Jamal Crawford (40) did it on Dec. 1, 2008, and LeBron James (42) and Ben Gordon (43) each accomplished the feat last March. Memphis also got 16 points from O.J. Mayo and 13 points from Zach Randolph. Dwyane Wade scored 25 points for the Heat.

at Atlanta 130, New Jersey 107: Maurice Evans scored 22 points, and Joe Johnson added 21 points and 10 assists to help the Hawks win their fourth in a row. Devin Harris, who started despite a sprained left pinkie finger, scored 23 points for the Nets, who allowed a season high in points in their third consecutive loss -- dropping the NBA's worst record to 2-22.

at Toronto 101, Houston 88: Chris Bosh led the Raptors with 27 points, Hedo Turkoglu had a season-high 23, and Jarrett Jack added 17 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Carl Landry scored 25 points for the Rockets, and Luis Scola had 21 points and 15 rebounds.

San Antonio 115, at Clippers 90
