Grizzlies Beat Celtics Without Gasol

Zach Randolph came off the bench, because he was late to shoot around.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Jerryd Bayless scored a season-high 30 points and the Memphis Grizzlies weathered a fourth-quarter rally by Boston's reserves to escape with a 110-106 victory over the Celtics on Saturday night.

Seven Memphis players finished in double figures and three recorded double-doubles. Darrell Arthur, who started for Zach Randolph, scored 18 points, while Randolph had 15 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.

Paul Pierce led Boston with 26 points. Jordan Crawford keyed a fourth-quarter rally, and scored 14 of his 21 points in the final frame. The Celtics lost their fourth consecutive game.

Both teams played without significant players. Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both sat out for Boston with left ankle sprains. Memphis center Marc Gasol is out indefinitely because of a re-aggravated abdominal tear.
