HOUSTON (AP) - Kyle Lowry scored 24 points, Kevin Martin added 22 and Courtney Lee hit four key free throws down the stretch as the Houston Rockets held off the Memphis Grizzlies 97-93 on Monday night.

Houston led by seven before Memphis went on a 5-0 run to get within 91-89 with 27.4 seconds left. O.J. Mayo grabbed a rebound, took it down the court and finished with a layup to cap that spurt.

Lee made a pair of free throws before Rudy Gay's layup with 19 seconds remaining got Memphis back within two points.

Lee hit two more free throws and Quincy Pondexter's layup cut it to two again before two free throws by Lowry secured the win.

Gay led the Grizzlies with 23 points and Mike Conley had 16.
