Jeff Green has big 4th, Grizzlies beat Magic 106-96

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Jeff Green had 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and the Memphis Grizzlies held on to beat the Orlando Magic 106-96 on Friday night.

Zach Randolph added 18 points, and Marc Gasol had 12 points and 16 rebounds to help the Grizzlies win their third straight.

The Magic led for most of the game before Memphis put together an 11-point run in the opening minutes of the final period. Orlando cut it to four points with just over a minute to play, but Green gave the Grizzlies some breathing room with back-to-back dunks.

Memphis played for the first time this season without starting point guard Mike Conley, who sat with a sprained right ankle.

Elfrid Payton led the Magic with career highs of 22 points and 12 assists.
