LOS ANGELES -- Rookie guard Zach LaVine scored 18 of his team-high 28 points off the bench in the second quarter, and Mo Williams had 25 points and 11 assists to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves over the Los Angeles Lakers 120-119 on Friday night.

Bryant finished with 26 points on 10 for 18 shooting and Nick Young scored 13 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter. Wesley Johnson had 19 points against his former club and Jeremy Lin had 18 points and 11 assists in the Lakers' fourth straight loss.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Marc Gasol had 26 points and nine assists as the Memphis Grizzlies held off the Trail Blazers 112-99 on Friday night to snap a nine-game Portland winning streak.

Mike Conley added 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have lost just two of 16 games this season for the NBA's best record (14-2). Memphis is undefeated against conference foes this season.

Wesley Matthews scored 26 or the Blazers, who lost just their second game at home. LaMarcus Aldridge added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

The Grizzlies led by as many as 15 points. But Matthews nailed a 3-pointer to narrow it before Chris Kaman's layup cut the Grizzlies' lead to 89-85 with 7:26 to go.

Tony Allen's layup put Memphis up 94-85. He added a 3-pointer that extended the lead to 108-93 with 1:37 left to seal it.

Zach Randolph had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, which has won eight of its last nine games. Conley had nine assists to just miss out on a triple double.

Portland (12-4) jumped out to an early 18-6 lead, but the Grizzlies closed the gap and tied it 25- 25 on Beno Udrih's pull-up jumper. Jon Leuer hit a 3-pointer that put Memphis ahead 41-37 midway tough the second. Randolph's layup and Conley's floater put Memphis in front 52-43 at the half.

Courtney Lee's 3-pointer extended the Grizzlies' lead to 59-47 early in the third. But Matthews hit a 3-pointer that pulled the Blazers back within 65-58.

Both teams got Thanksgiving off.

The Grizzlies were coming off a 99-93 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.

Portland was back home after a brief three-game road trip capped by a 105-97 victory over Charlotte on Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies hit 50 percent of their 3-point shots, compared to just 29 percent for the Blazers.

TIP INS

Grizzlies: The Sacramento Kings were denied their appeal of a last-second lost to the Memphis two weeks ago. The Kings had argued that Courtney Lee's game-winning shot that gave the Grizzlies a 111-110 victory actually came after time had expired. The league said in a statement Friday that Commissioner Adam Silver determined the officials' call was correct "and not a misapplication of the playing rules."

Trail Blazers: Blazers center Robin Lopez Tweeted at the Portland Police on Friday: "Please dont pull me over for watchin the (hash)StarWarsVII teaser on the way to shootaround (at)PortlandPolice ill bust some crooks heads i swear." The Police responded as only Yoda would: "(at)rolopez42 Stop you we won't. Beat the (at)memgrizz, or do not. There is no try. (hash)PORvsMEM."

Assistant coach Ettore Messina led San Antonio to its sixth straight victory. Messina said everything he is doing has Popovich's seal of approval.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Before Friday's game against Orlando, Indiana coach Frank Vogel said David West had been eager to return to the court.

"He's not a guy that likes to miss games. From the day he sprained his ankle he's been eager to get out there," Vogel said.

The power forward missed the first 15 games of the season because of an ankle injury -- one of several injured players that contributed to a 1-6 start for the Eastern Conference finalists from last season.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Russell Westbrook scored 32 points in his first game back from a broken right hand, and the Thunder rolled past the Knicks 105-78 on Friday night.

Westbrook was injured in the second game of the season and hadn't played since. He returned in grand fashion, making 12 of 17 shots, including 3 of 4 3-pointers, and adding eight assists and seven rebounds in just 23 minutes before checking out late in the third quarter because the Thunder were in control.

Amar'e Stoudemire had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who shot 39 percent and scored a season-low point total in their third straight loss. Carmelo Anthony, a top 10 scorer in the league, missed his second straight game with back spasms. He said before the game he was unsure when he would return.

HOUSTON -- Near the end of a seven-game road trip, there was some concern that the Los Angeles Clippers might be running out of gas.

Turns out that there was no need to worry.

Blake Griffin had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Jamal Crawford added 21 points to help the Clippers coast to a 102-85 win over the injury-depleted Houston Rockets on Friday night.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd knew he was going to need more than a few players to step up against Detroit on Friday night.

ATLANTA -- Mike Budenholzer wasn't going to let the Atlanta Hawks relax after their strongest defensive half of the season, especially when he detected a lack of intensity to open the second half.

Budenholzer called a full timeout after New Orleans' first possession of the second half, and the Hawks got the message that no letdown would be tolerated.

Led by Jeff Teague's 26 points and the strong defense in the first half, the Hawks answered every second-half challenge from New Orleans and beat the Pelicans 100-91 on Friday night.
