Gasol leads Grizzlies past Cavaliers 103-92

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Marc Gasol scored 22 points and the Memphis Grizzlies held off a late run for a 103-92 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.

Memphis, which strengthened its hold on the fourth spot in the Western Conference playoff race, has won 11 of 12 and is 12-4 since trading star forward Rudy Gay to Toronto on Jan. 30.

The Grizzlies' previous victory in Cleveland came on Nov. 29, 2003, LeBron James' rookie season with the Cavaliers.

Kyrie Irving, who missed Cleveland's morning shootaround with flu-like symptoms, scored a team-high 24 points.

Mike Conley and Jerryd Bayless each scored 17 points and Grizzlies pulled away after the Cavaliers cut the lead to 88-84 with 5:21 to play.
