Rockets Edge Grizzlies, 111-109 

Barone no longer undefeated.

AP - Tracy McGrady scored a season-high 38 points and had nine rebounds to help the Rockets beat Memphis 111-109 on Sunday night, handing Grizzlies interim coach Tony Barone his first loss.

Juwan Howard added a season-high 22 points, and Luther Head had 18 in the Rockets' third straight victory. They are 3-1 since Yao broke a bone under his right knee. He's out at least six weeks.

McGrady has topped 30 points in the Rockets' last two games without their All-Star center. On Sunday, McGrady hit 15 of 30 shots and went 5-for-8 from 3-point range.

Memphis double-teamed McGrady late in the game and he found Head open for two 3-pointers in the final 2 minutes.

Mike Miller matched a season high with seven 3-pointers and scored 32 points for Memphis in its 12th loss in 14 games. The Grizzlies lost five in a row before Barone replaced the fired Mike Fratello before Saturday's 110-104 win over Toronto.
