Grizzlies Top Hornets, 108-104 

(AP) - Hakim Warrick scored 15 points, including six straight in a key stretch late in the fourth quarter, and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 108-104 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday night.

Mike Miller scored 22 points to lead Memphis. Chucky Atkins added 19, Rudy Gay had 18, and Junior Harrington and Pau Gasol 11 each. The win was the Grizzlies' first against a team in the Southwest Division. No team has ever gone winless in the division.

Tyson Chandler had 17 points and a franchise record-tying 23 rebounds for New Orleans, which snapped its three-game winning streak. Desmond Mason scored 23 points and David West had 22 to lead the Hornets. Jannero Pargo added 11.

Memphis used a 7-0 run just after the midpoint of the fourth quarter to overtake New Orleans. Gay's steal and breakaway dunk capped the spurt, giving Memphis a 94-91 lead with 3:28 left.
