The NBA Roundup …
TORONTO ó The Toronto Raptors were determined to keep Chris Paul out of the paint.
They limited Paul’s penetration, but couldn’t stop the New Orleans Hornets point guard from finding open shooters on the perimeter.
David West scored 29 points, James Posey added a season-high 20 points, including six 3-pointers, and 10 rebounds for the Hornets, who beat the Raptors 99-91 Sunday for their eighth win in 10 games.
Rasual Butler scored 16 points and Paul added 12 points and 12 assists for the Hornets.
Paul didn’t take long to pick up on Toronto’s strategy and made the Raptors pay, feeding Posey for five 3-pointers in the first half.
Grizzlies 102, Heat 86
MEMPHIS, Tenn. ó O.J. Mayo scored 28 points, Rudy Gay added 18 and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Miami Heat 102-86 Sunday for their fourth straight win.
Memphis’ winning streak is its longest since it won the final five games of the 2005-06 season. Darko Milicic finished with 13 points and reserve Mike Conley had 12 for the Grizzlies.
Dwyane Wade, who entered averaging a league-best 29.1 points, scored just 17 on 5-of-16 shooting after making nine of 24 attempts in the Heat’s loss to Atlanta on Friday.
Michael Beasley led Miami with 20 points.
