Conley, Gay lead Grizzlies over Hornets

 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Conley scored 19 points, Rudy Gay had 16 and reserve rookie guard Xavier Henry added 15 to help the Memphis Grizzlies remain unbeaten in the preseason with a 96-91 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night.

Henry scored 14 points in the second half and sparked the Grizzlies in the final quarter. Memphis entered the fourth quarter trailing 74-67, but opened the period on an 11-2 run capped by Henry's 3-pointer from the right wing for a 78-76 lead.

The Grizzlies built the lead to nine points in the game's closing minute.

Memphis (7-0) hasn't won as many games in the preseason since 2005-06, the last season in which it qualified for the playoffs.

Pops Mensah-Bonsu had 19 points for the Hornets (1-5), while Aaron Gray scored 13.
