PHOENIX - When the Memphis Grizzlies impose their will on defence and slow down the game on offence, they cause problems for up-tempo teams. Ichiro Suzuki Jersey .Such was the case Wednesday night in the second half of a 102-91 win over the Phoenix Suns.Mike Conley had 24 points and 11 assists, and the undefeated Grizzlies turned up the defence in the third quarter to slow down the Suns.The Grizzlies, who won all four meetings between the teams last season, forced 10 turnovers in the third and turned an 11-point deficit in the second period into a five-point lead going into the fourth. Conley and fellow guard Courtney Lee, both coming off injuries, combined to score 17 of Memphis 30 third-quarter points.We just played with a lot more force. We rebounded better, our effort was a lot better and we got contributions from a lot of different places, Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. Courtney Lee came back and made some shots, but he did a lot of things that dont show up as far as his shooting numbers. Mike Conley being assertive and aggressive early put a lot of pressure on them.Conley injured his ankle in the previous game but got the start. Lee missed the past two games with a concussion and also started, scoring 22 points with 4-of-5 shooting on 3-pointers.Memphis (5-0) is off to the best start in franchise history.Im just happy to have a complete game, Conley said.Eric Bledsoe made his first eight shots for Phoenix and finished with a season-high 23 points. He didnt miss until the fourth, and had a basket waved off after officials reviewed the play and determined the shot hit the rim after the 24-second clock expired.Bledsoe made all five of his first-quarter shots plus three free throws to end the quarter with 14 points. Reserve guard Gerald Green picked up the scoring in the second quarter with nine of his 11 points, including a right baseline 3-pointer that gave the Suns a 41-32 lead.Phoenix (3-2) took a 52-46 lead into halftime. But it didnt last long, as the Suns committed 18 turnovers for the game.The Grizzlies trailed 43-32 after Isaiah Thomas driving layup midway through the second quarter, but took a 60-59 lead after a 3-pointer from Conley and a jumper from Lee with 8:59 to play in the third.The Grizzlies outscored Phoenix 18-5 over the first 5 minutes of the third quarter to take a 64-59 lead. They led by as many as eight in the quarter and 15 in the fourth.I thought that game was lost in the third quarter, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said.Marc Gasol scored 10 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter for the Grizzlies.I dont think we did a good job of executing. They did a great job of packing it in the paint, Bledsoe said. They were the better team.Markieff Morris had 20 points and Thomas added 15 for the Suns.Morris hit a 3 to cut the Memphis lead to 90-83 with 4:34 to play, but Lee connected from long range on the next possession. The Suns never got closer.___TIP-INSSuns: Hornacek said he wouldnt be surprised if the Grizzlies finish as Western Conference champions this season. Theyve got guys at all the positions. ...

Kerry, In Mondays Habs/Bruins game, there were three questionable/brutal calls against the Habs late in the game - Tomas Plekanec, then Douglas Murray, then Brendan Gallagher. CHICAGO -- Paul Konerko is a spot starter and pinch hitter in his 18th and final major league season, and he is determined to succeed in his new role. He looked very comfortable Wednesday night. Konerko had a big three-run double and Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight game, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs. "Its a good attack. I mean we feel like one through nine we can score runs at any moment," Konerko said. Jose Abreu collected three more hits as the White Sox roughed up Travis Wood on their way to their fourth straight win, extending their season-best streak. The rookie slugger doubled twice to run his major league-best total to 24 extra-base hits. The White Sox also got a nice game from shortstop Alexei Ramirez, who singled in a run in the first and made a great over-the-shoulder catch to rob Welington Castillo of a hit in the ninth. Ramirez then threw to first to double off Starlin Castro for the second out. "Just an awesome play," said Beckham, who was standing near second when Ramirez grabbed the ball in short centre field. "Just fun to watch." The last-place Cubs dropped their fourth consecutive game. Frustrated rookie manager Rick Renteria was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Tom Woodring after he pulled Wood (2-4) with no outs in the fifth. Mike Olt hit his fifth homer for the Cubs, who have managed just five runs and 12 hits in the first three games of the city series against the White Sox. Luis Valbuena and Emilio Bonifacio each had a run-scoring double. "I think we still have to put ourselves back in the situation where we continue to get better at grinding out at-bats," Renteria said. "Putting balls in play with some impact in hitters counts, which are things that we talk about. Things that are being addressed on a daily basis." Bonifacios sharp grounder off the glove of diving third baseman Marcus Semien got the Cubs within 4-3 in the fifth and put runners on second and third with one out. But John Danks (3-2) limited the damage by striking out Junior Lake and Anthony Rizzo to end the inning. The White Sox then put the game away iin the bottom half. Dee Gordon Jersey. The first three batters reached before Konerko hit a rope into the left-field corner for his second double, chasing Wood and giving him five RBIs in limited action in his final season. Konerko advanced on a groundout and scored on Semiens single, giving the White Sox an 8-3 lead. Konerko doubled again in the seventh in his seventh start of the season. "Its the same name on the back and all that, but nothing this year is connected to the past," said Konerko, a .300 hitter in 75 career games against the Cubs. "This is a new thing and Im trying to be good at it. Its taking some practice and I think Im getting better at it." Wood allowed a season-high eight runs and matched a career high by issuing five walks in his shortest outing of the year. The left-hander, who made the All-Star team last season, was 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two previous starts against the White Sox. "I dont like walking anybody let alone as many as I did," Wood said. "I dont even know how many I had, but I know it wasnt good." Danks had a season-high eight strikeouts in six innings. The lefty gave up three runs and four hits while stopping a two-game losing streak. Danks got a lift in the fourth when Beckham drove a 1-0 pitch from Wood over the wall in centre for a three-run shot, making it 4-1. Beckham had four hits in a 5-1 victory over the Cubs on Tuesday night, including a tiebreaking solo homer with two out in the eighth. NOTES: White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie was activated from the 15-day disabled list. He had been sidelined with a bruised left hand. To make room on the roster, OF Jordan Danks was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte. ... The Cubs placed RH reliever Pedro Strop on the 15-day disabled list with a moderate left groin strain.
