Recap


RAPTORS 114, GRIZZLIES 110 (OT):
Jerryd Bayless had 28 points, nine assists and six rebounds to lead five players in double figures as visiting Toronto halted a six-game losing streak.

Gary Forbes scored a season-high 20 points and Andrea Bargnani and DeMar DeRozan added 18 apiece to help the Raptors send the Grizzlies to their third loss in four games and win in Memphis for the first time since Nov. 21, 2007.

Marc Gasol scored a season-high 28 points and Rudy Gay added 26 points and 11 rebounds in Memphis' second straight home defeat.

Zach Randolph, playing for the first time since tearing a knee ligament on New Year's Day, added 25 points for the Grizzlies, who were a woeful 31 of 51 from the free-throw line.

DeRozan's two free throws with three seconds left in overtime finally settled the contest, which feature a comedy of errors down the stretch as neither team was able to make a field goal in the final 1:52 of the extra session.

Bayless committed a lane violation that erased a second free throw and three-point lead with 15 seconds left, and Memphis point guard Mike Conley missed 2 of 3 free throws with four seconds left and his team trailing by three.

Gay, who sat out his last game with a concussion, hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final seven seconds of regulation, including one at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Toronto played its first game since trading guard Leandro Barbosa to Indiana on Thursday. He was third on the team in scoring at 12.2 points per game. ... Due to injuries, Richardson and Gay were in the lineup together for only the fourth time in the last 66 regular-season games. ... Forbes had his highest point total since scoring 18 at Boston on Jan. 18. The Raptors were playing the third of a season-high five-game road trip.
