MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies are adding a better scoring offence to complement one of the leagues best defences. Marc Gasol had 20 points and nine rebounds as the Grizzlies built a 30-point lead in the second half en route to a 101-77 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. Gasol was 10 of 15 from the field, all of his points coming in the first half, as Memphis, which had seven players in double figures, won for the fourth time in the past five games. It also marked the second straight game Memphis has topped the century mark after reaching 100 only twice in the 24 games before Wednesdays 106-93 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. "One thing that we have had all season is our defence," said Rudy Gay, one of three Grizzlies who finished with 11 points. "Were defending teams and getting turnovers. That makes it easier for us to score on offence, but were not forced to score each time in the half court set because we get so many points off the fast break." Mike Conley made six of seven shots, including 2 of 3 outside the arc, for 14 points, while Zach Randolph had 12 points and matched Gasols nine rebounds. Jerryd Bayless, Tony Wroten, like Gay, scored 11 apiece, while Chris Johnson, on a 10-day contract with Memphis, had 10 points. Wroten, Bayless and Johnsons contribution were part of the Memphis bench, a troublesome spot at times this season, outscoring the Nets reserves 38-24. "The bench has been great," said Randolph, the day after he was selected as a Western Conference reserve for the All-Star game. "For us to win, we need our bench. They understand that. The way theyve been playing has been great. Theyve been stepping up." Brook Lopez led the Nets with 18 points, while Deron Williams scored 12, adding six assists before leaving late in the third quarter with a quad contusion. Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said Williams could have returned, but there was no need because of the Memphis lead. "It just seemed like more sense to let the (reserves) finish it out," Carlesimo said. Joe Johnson and Reggie Evans scored 11 points each, with Evans grabbing 10 rebounds. Brooklyns starting backcourt of Williams and Johnson both were 4 of 10 from the field, part of the Nets shooting 41 per cent. "They just came out and played better than us," Williams said. "They played tougher than us. They outrebounded us and out-toughed us. .This is a game where we didnt come out and play the way we were supposed to play." Memphis dominance on the inside was set early and continued through the game. The Grizzlies held a 62-40 advantage in the paint and outrebounded Brooklyn 45-37. The 62 points in the paint were a season high for the Grizzlies. Memphis had 15 offensive rebounds, leading to 27 second-chance points. "We didnt match (the Grizzlies) physicality or aggressiveness on defence, especially their aggressiveness on the boards in the first half," Carlesimo said. "That was the game." Memphis, which is second in the league in allowing 89.5 points a game, played one of its best halves of the season in carrying a 67-44 lead into the break. Gasol had 20 points, while Randolph had scored 12 in the first two quarters. The 67 points were the most scored by the Grizzlies in a half this season. Memphis connected on 60 per cent of its first-half shots as it worked the offence through Gasol early, and the Grizzlies centre was 10 of 15 from the field in the first two quarters. "Our game plan early was to get Marc being aggressive and getting him some scoring opportunities," Conley said. "Marc did a great job of taking advantage of it. "... We did as much as we could to help Marc both offensively and defensively, and I think as a team we all played off of each other well. We were able to take advantage of things that Marc was opening up for us because of his aggressiveness early." The lead got to as many as 25 points before intermission. The Nets, who have had trouble handling the ball recently, committed only five turnovers in the first half, but shot 43 per cent from the field, not near enough to keep pace with the Grizzlies. "We think were a better team than we showed in the first half," Carlesimo said. "Actually, I thought in the second half, we did a good job. We competed on the boards, and we defended really well, but we dug too big of a hole." He later added: "We got beat up is what we did. They just took it to us." Memphis extended the lead to 30 in the early stages of the second half, but the Nets had a 13-3 run to get their deficit to 79-59. Memphis could not maintain its shooting touch from the first half, and turnovers were hurting as Memphis had four miscues in the period. Memphis held an 85-67 lead after three quarters, despite being outscored 23-18 in the period. The Nets actually could have cut into the lead at the start of the fourth as Memphis continued to commit turnovers, missed its first two shots and was scoreless through almost 3 minutes. Problem was, Brooklyn also was scoreless during the span, missing its first six shots to start the fourth. In the end, Memphis outscored the Nets 16-10 in the fourth. "They turned it off, and it really didnt matter," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. "We only scored 34 points in the second half, but the first half is where we won the game."

The hopeful Jets wrap their regular season schedule in a meeting with the Habs needing a victory and a lot of help to reach the playoffs for only the second time in club history. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game with coverage starting at 6:30pm ct/7:30pm et. The game is also available on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg and TSN.ca/Winnipeg. Viewers in the Canadiens region can also watch the game with coverage starting at 8pm et/9pm at. The game is also available on TSN Radio 690 in Montreal and TSN.ca/Montreal. Winnipeg was making a late charge to reach the playoffs for the first time since an appearance in 2007 as the Atlanta Thrashers. The Jets were 6-0-1 in their previous seven games before a 5-3 setback to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday. The win clinched the Southeast Division for the Capitals, giving the Jets one less path to the playoffs. Winnipeg is ninth overall in the Eastern Conference with 51 points, one back of both the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators for the last two playoff berths. However, the Rangers have two games remaining in the season and visit the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, while the Sens still have three games left to go and play at Washington. Winnipeg got goals from Evander Kane, Blake Wheeler and Nik Antropov on Tuesday night, but Ondrej Pavelec allowed four scores on 40 shots faced. "They played better than us tonight," said Winnipeg head coach Claude Noel. "They can make plays and do make plays. We stuck with the game and got back in it, but then we let it get away." Added Antropov: "Its frustrating. To lose a game likke that, it was basically our Game 7 in the playoffs.dddddddddddd And its frustrating to lose that way." Antropov was returning to action after missing eight in a row due to a lower body injury, but the Jets are resuming their postseason charge without defensemen Tobias Enstrom (back) and Zach Bogosian (concussion-like symptoms) as well as forwards Olli Jokinen (high ankle sprain) and Kyle Wellwood (hand). The Canadiens are in the postseason for the fifth time in six seasons, but are looking to capture their first Northeast Division title since 2008. They havent done themselves any favors, losing five of their past six to remain tied with the Boston Bruins for first place with 59 points. The Bruins, who host the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight, have three games left in the regular season to just two for the Habs, who sit fourth overall in the East due to the Bs owning the tiebreaker. Montreal is four points ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have two games left on their schedule and visit the Florida Panthers tonight. On the same night that the Bruins lost to the Philadelphia Flyers, the Canadiens could not come back from a three-goal deficit in falling 3-2 to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. Carey Price stopped 21-of-24 shots while Lars Eller and Max Pacioretty both scored for the Canadiens. "We made a game of it, but we didnt make a good enough push in the third period," Canadiens forward Brian Gionta said. Montreal, which ends its season-closing road trip in Toronto on Saturday, has won four straight and seven of its past eight versus the Jets, taking the first two of three meetings this season at home. The Canadiens split two trips to Winnipeg last season. ' ' '
