Recap: Memphis vs. Miami

Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Jon Leuer poured in 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in just 24 minutes off the bench as the Memphis Grizzlies downed the Miami Heat, 103-87, at FedExForum on Sunday.

Memphis shot a season-high 58.9 percent from the floor to bounce back from having its 22-game home winning streak broken by the Spurs on Friday.

Mike Conley chipped in 18 points on 8-for-8 shooting, while Zach Randolph and Courtney Lee both added 17 in the winning cause.

Dwyane Wade paced Miami with 25 points and six assists, but the Heat dropped their fourth straight.

"I thought we fought hard, we just didn't have enough to win it," Wade said.

A Conley floater had the Grizzlies up by 15 midway through the third quarter, but seven quick Heat points cut the margin down to single digits at 71-63.

Wade's layup and dunk early in the fourth had Miami within 82-79, but Memphis answered with the next eight points to give the hosts some breathing room.

Tony Allen's reverse layup extended the margin to 90-79, and Leuer's double- clutch slam in transition pushed it to an insurmountable 99-82 with four minutes to play.

"Leuer had a sensational game," Grizzlies head coach David Joerger said. "He's worked on his game. We believe in him."

There were five lead changes in the first quarter and none the rest of the way.

Memphis led 28-26 at the end of the opening frame and took a 55-48 advantage into the break.
