Grizzlies Lose 9th Straight

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Vince Carter scored 23 points and Devin

Harris added 17 points and eight assists as the New Jersey Nets

snapped a five-game losing skid with a 99-88 victory over the

Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night.

The game was close early in the fourth quarter, but the Nets

outscored the Grizzlies 27-18 in the period, sending them to their

ninth straight loss.

O.J. Mayo scored 23 points to lead the Grizzlies, who were

playing their second game under interim coach Johnny Davis, who

took over when Marc Iavaroni was fired Thursday. Memphis is

scheduled to introduce new coach Lionel Hollins at a press

conference Sunday.
