New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Rudy Gay matched a season-best with 28 points and the Memphis Grizzlies held off the New Orleans Hornets down the stretch to record a 96-89 road victory on Friday.

Gay shot 10-of-18 from the field, while Quincy Pondexter made all six of his shot attempts -- four of which came from 3-point range -- in a 16-point effort as the Grizzlies posted their sixth win in seven games and improved their NBA- best season record to 14-3.

Zach Randolph added 15 points for Memphis, which led from the first quarter on and were ahead by as many as 14 points in the second half before the Hornets put forth an unsuccessful comeback try.

Austin Rivers had a career-high 15 points and Ryan Anderson and Brian Robertson also netted 15 for the Hornets, who finished off a 5-game homestand at 1-4.
