Gasol, Daniels, Randolph spur Memphis

Memphis: Marc Gasol scored 25 points, Troy Daniels had 22 and Zach Randolph added 21 to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 114-80 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, who lost Russell Westbrook in the third quarter to an ejection.
Westbrook was kicked out of the game with 6:41 remaining in the third quarter after arguing with officials and receiving his second technical foul. The Grizzlies led 61-45 when he departed.
Westbrook, who has 15 triple-doubles this season, left with 21 points, five rebounds and no assists. He finished as the Thunder’s leading scorer. Enes Kanter had 19 points, while Steven Adams grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds.
Hornets 91, Heat 82
Nicolas Batum narrowly missed a triple-double, while the Charlotte Hornets controlled the second half for a 91-82 victory over the Miami Heat.
Batum finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, going without an assist in the fourth quarter largely because team-mates kept missing open shots.
The Hornets trailed by seven at half-time but scored the first eight points of the third quarter and went on to outscore the Heat 31-17 in the period.
Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 22 points.
Jazz 100, 76ers 32
George Hill scored 21 points, collected eight rebounds and dished out six assists to help the Utah Jazz defeat the Philadelphia 76ers.
Gordon Hayward and Rodney Hood added 20 points apiece for the Jazz.
Trailing by four points after three quarters, Utah raced away by outscoring the Sixers 21-2 over the first six minutes of the fourth period.
Hood ignited the run with back-to-back baskets and Hill finished it off with a pull-up jumper, putting Utah up 91-76 with 5:57 remaining.
Ersan Ilyasova had 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead Philadelphia.
Suns 99, Raptors 91
Eric Bledsoe had 22 points and 10 assists and Devin Booker added 19 points in the Phoenix Suns’ victory over the Toronto Raptors. Forward PJ Tucker had 14 points and centre Tyson Chandler had 13 rebounds for the Suns.
Guards Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan had 24 points apiece for the Raptors (22-10), who shot 40 per cent from the field and made 7-of-27 three-point field goal attempts while tying a season low in points.
DeRozan scored five points in 28 seconds when the Raptors cut the lead to 90-85 with 3:25 remaining, but Booker scored the next six points on a three-point play and a three-pointer to make it 96-85. — Reuters
