(AP) – Jonas Valanciunas scored 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting, Jaren Jackson Jr. added 20 points and the Memphis Grizzlies held onto the lead this time against Oklahoma City, beating the Thunder 110-97 in the second meeting between the teams in eight days.

Tyus Jones added 15 points off the bench on 6-of-7 shooting for Memphis, which blew a 24-point third-quarter lead during its last visit to Oklahoma City on Dec. 18 and lost 126-122.

That started a stretch in which the Grizzles dropped three out of four games.
