MEMPHIS, Tenn. Klim Kostin Jersey . -- With Tony Allen back, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to turn up their defence pressure and hold off the Los Angeles Clippers down the stretch. Zach Randolph had 21 points and 11 rebounds, Marc Gasol added 17 points and 10 rebounds, and the Grizzlies survived a late rally for a 102-96 victory over the Clippers on Friday night. Allen, the Grizzlies defensive sparkplug, missed the previous 21 games with a sprained left wrist. His return sparked a defensive effort that held the Clippers to 33 per cent shooting in the second half and gave Memphis a double-digit lead that was enough of a buffer for the Grizzlies to win their fourth straight. Allen scored nine points on 4-of-4 shooting with two steals and a block. "With TA back in the lineup, its great," Randolph said. "Hes a leader on this team, and he gets guys going with his energy. What else can I say? Were happy to have him back." Allen drew a standing ovation when he entered the game late in the first quarter and seemed even more animated than usual in seeing his first action since Jan. 3. He said his goal was "to get in there and cause havoc." "I kind of had butterflies in my stomach when they did that," Allen said of the ovation, "but I got focused on the game." James Johnson added 15 for Memphis, and Mike Miller finished with 13, hitting 5 of 8 from the field. Courtney Lee scored 10 for Memphis. Gasol had four blocks. Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 28 points and 13 rebounds, and Jamal Crawford had 23 points. Chris Paul added 18 points and 14 assists, but was 4 of 13 from the field as Los Angeles lost its second straight. "It was just one of those games that we missed a lot of easy ones," Griffin said after Los Angeles shot 39 per cent for the game. Clippers coach Doc Rivers thought the game started slipping away in the second quarter. Rivers, who coached Allen in Boston, noted that he was a key. "I thought Tony Allen, Mike Miller and James Johnson turned the game around for them with their energy," Rivers said. Another key was the bench scoring. Memphis reserves outscored their Clippers counterparts 43-7. "When we dont score, thats fine," Rivers said, "but weve got to be able to get stops. Our second unit didnt kill this offence, they gave up 32 points defensively, and that thats what hurt us." The Grizzlies opened the fourth quarter connecting on their first four shots for an 11-4 run to take the lead to double digits. Mike Conleys layup gave Memphis an 84-72 lead with 9:23 remaining. The margin stayed between seven and 11 points, and Memphis still led by 10 approaching the 4-minute mark. But Los Angeles chipped away, and a pair of free throws from Paul brought the Clippers within 98-96 with 1:05 left. That was as close as Los Angeles could get. Memphis scored the last four points while the Clippers were missing their final four shots. As has become the norm when the two teams face each other, the play was physical and defence stout. "Every game we play against them is going to be a battle, and we understand that," Conley said. "Both teams get up for each other, and (Los Angeles) is the most competitive team, I think, as far as rivalries go." NOTES: Griffin has scored at least 25 points in 10 straight games. ... The Clippers and Grizzlies have played 23 times since Jan. 26, 2012, including 13 games in the post-season. ... The loss snapped the Clippers three-game regular-season winning streak in Memphis. ... The Grizzlies promotion Friday night was a temporary "GRIZZLIES" neck tattoo as a nod to reserve F James Johnson, who has his sons name NAYMIN tattooed on his neck. ... The Grizzlies were 16-5 during Allens absence. Robby Fabbri Jersey . Diego Costa headed in Gabis corner seven minutes from time to secure victory ahead of the return match in Madrid on March 11. "We know that at Madrid it will be another game, which will also be important and very difficult," Milan coach Clarence Seedorf said. Shayne Corson Jersey .Cameron sustained his third concussion in three seasons last week on a hit by Oakland safety Brandion Ross, who was fined $22,050 by the NFL for the helmet-to-helmet blow. http://www.officialbluesnhlshop.com/dmitrij-jaskin-jersey/ . Unfortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, James Harden was in the building.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady and the Patriots routed the Bengals and quieted the doubters.The three-time Super Bowl winner finally looked like a quarterback who has thrown for 50,000 yards in his career as New England dominated the NFLs last unbeaten team, beating Cincinnati 43-17 Sunday night.Just six days earlier, the Patriots lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 41-14, unleashing criticism that Brady had regressed and lacked talented teammates to help him.Its hard to be oblivious to things. We all have TVs or the internet or the questions I get and the emails that I get from people that are concerned, Brady said after throwing for two touchdowns and no interceptions. Nobody died or anything. Its just a loss and I think weve always done a great job putting losses behind us quickly.Brady did it in 2003 when the Patriots lost the opener to Buffalo 31-0, then beat Philadelphia in the next game 31-10 and went on to their second Super Bowl win in three years.Sundays win had special significance for Brady, as he became the sixth quarterback to pass the 50,000-yard mark.Its awesome, he said.Brady threw for a 292 yards after not passing for more than 249 in his first four games, and Stevan Ridley had 113 of the teams 220 yards rushing against a team that had allowed an NFL-low 11 points per game.The Patriots (3-2) surpassed that by scoring on their first two possessions on Ridleys 1-yard run and Bradys 17-yard pass to Tim Wright. They led 20-3 at halftime before the Bengals (3-1) cut it to 10 points on Andy Daltons 37-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu.But Cincinnati came no closer and became the last team to lose a game this season. The Arizona Cardinals also began the day at 3-0, but lost to the Denver Broncos.The Bengals were coming off a bye and had trailed for just 48 seconds in their first three games. But they never led Sunday as Ridley scored just 4:57 into the game.We think about coming into New England against a team that just got their teeth kicked in and they were going to play their best game possible, Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth said.Stephen Gostkowski added five field goals for New England, the most in his nine-year career.Brady completed 23 of 35 passes. His 27-yard completion to Rob Gronkowski put him over the 50,000-yard mark and he connnected for Wrights touchdown on the next play. Colton Parayko Jersey. The fans then chanted Bra-dee! Bra-dee!Brady boosted his total to 50,232. John Elway is fifth with 51,475.It was a long week. We dug deep. (Im) proud of everybody, Brady said.Dalton was 15 of 24 for 204 yards and was sacked for the first time this season when Chris Jones tackled him 3 minutes into the fourth quarter. Daltons second touchdown pass, a 17-yarder to A.J. Green, made it 34-17.We didnt underestimate anybody, Green said. We just had a bad game.The Bengals lost three fumbles and failed to convert their seven third-down plays.If you turn the ball over and dont make any third downs, you have a chance to have this happen to you, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said.The Patriots were surrounded by questions all week.Was Brady no longer one of the NFLs top quarterbacks? Did he have enough solid players around him with a rebuilt offensive line and mediocre receivers?For one night, at least, he did.We dont sit around listening to what everybody else says, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. We try to do the best we can.Brady was sacked just once and completed his first two passes, 20 yards to Brandon LaFell and 30 yards to Wright, who had his best game since being acquired from Tampa Bay just before the season for six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins.Not a bad start for a quarterback who had led the Patriots to only 46 points in the previous 14 quarters.Brady got plenty of help from his defence, which allowed just 121 yards in the first half, and his special teams, as Kyle Arrington scored on a 9-yard return after recovering Brandon Tates fumble on a kickoff. That made it 34-10 just 6 seconds after Bradys 16-yard touchdown pass to Gronkowski.We know were a good football team, Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis said. It was important for us to stick together as a team.NOTES: Revis hurt his hamstring late in the game. It was a minor injury, he said, I was just happy to get back out there and contribute to a win. ... The Patriots held an advantage of more than 17 minutes in time of possession a 38:56 to 21:04. ... New England committed 12 penalties three weeks after being penalized 15 times in a 30-7 win at Minnesota.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2018 Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
