Celtics bounce back with 102-92 win over Memphis

BOSTON (AP) - Leon Powe scored a career-high 30 points with 11 rebounds, and Ray Allen scored 22 points to help the Boston Celtics snap a 2-game losing streak and beat the Memphis Grizzlies 102-92.

Powe had the 10th double-double of his career and his third in four games.

Rudy Gay scored 26, O.J. Mayo had 21 and Marc Gasol had 11 points and 15 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have lost four consecutive games as they struggle to stay out of the Western Conference cellar.

Powe started for just the third time this season because Kevin Garnett and Glen "Big Baby" Davis are both hurt. But the Celtics did get some good news when point guard Rajon Rondo returned after missing two straight games with a sprained right ankle.
