MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Zach Randolph had 15 points and 14 rebounds, Rudy Gay finished with 21 points and a key basket with 1:03 left, and the Memphis Grizzlies won their fourth straight with a 93-85 victory over the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

Houston was within 87-85 in the final 2 minutes, but Memphis scored the last five points of the game, including Gay's rebound bucket, to win their 13th consecutive regular-season game at home.

Mike Conley had 14 points for Memphis, including a 3-pointer down the stretch, and Jerryd Bayless added 12.

Chandler Parsons led the Rockets with 19 points, including 15 in the second half. James Harden had 18 points, but shot only 4 of 18 from the field and 1 of 6 outside the arc. Jeremy Lin had 15 points, while Omer Asik added 10 points and 13 rebounds.

The loss was the Rockets' first on the road this season.
