MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Each time the Utah Jazz threatened Memphis lead, the Grizzlies responded with defensive stops. Utahs second-half effort pulled the Jazz even in the fourth before Memphis clamped down its defence and beat the Jazz 96-86 on Wednesday night. Zach Randolph scored 21 points, Marc Gasol added 20 as Memphis maintained its hold on a Western Conference playoff spot. "When we do things were supposed to, everything is easier. Its more us," Gasol said of holding off the late Utah threats. "When we start breaking down and not doing what were supposed to, things get ugly quick." Mike Conley finished with 18 points and seven assists, and Tony Allen scored 10 points. Memphis won its eighth straight home game and fifth straight game at home over the Jazz. Gordon Hayward, Trey Burke and Alec Burks each scored 16 points for Utah, while Enes Kanter had 12 points and 12 rebounds. The Jazz lost their sixth straight and 11th of their last 12. "I love the way we fought in the second half," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. "We gave ourselves a chance, and we fought back in the game." Memphis weathered several runs by the Jazz before six straight points in the fourth quarter provided a sufficient buffer. The Grizzlies victory, coupled with Dallas overtime loss to Minnesota, moved Memphis into the seventh playoff spot by percentage points over the Mavericks. Utah kept making runs at Memphis and finally caught the Grizzlies near the midway point of the fourth. Memphis had carried its advantage to 12 early in the period, but Utah answered with a 16-4 run to tie the game at 84 with 5:38 left. The tying basket came after Memphis fourth turnover of the quarter, leading to a breakaway by Burks. Helping the Utah run was the Jazz hitting 10 of their first 12 shots in the fourth. But Memphis got inside for its next three baskets -- by Tayshaun Prince, Randolph and Conley -- to increase the lead to 90-84, enough for the Grizzlies to secure the game. After tying the game, Utah would commit four turnovers the rest of the way and missed nine of its final 10 shots, preventing the Jazz from threatening again. "I think we kind of settled too much, tried to just get the game over with instead of going out there and playing the style that got us the lead," Conley said. "Late in the fourth quarter, we finally got that back." As poorly as the Jazz played in the first half when they trailed by as many as 18, they reversed their fortunes in the third quarter. Hayward, who converted only one of eight shots in the first half, got untracked, helping Utah go on a 16-4 rally to get the Jazz close. "We just came out in the second half and played hard," said Jazz forward Derrick Favours, who was limited to six points on 3-for-10 shooting. "Gordon Hayward got going. We were just out there playing hard. We will get one of these games sooner or later." Utah would get within 3 in the third, but Memphis responded to run the advantage back to 13 before holding a 74-63 lead heading into the final period. Hayward scored eight in the quarter, while Richard Jefferson had nine for Utah, which made 13 of 22 shots in the third. "I think the second half we played pretty good, especially in the third quarter," Kanter said. "We got a really good run and we came back." Memphis, which led 48-32 at halftime, maintained its poise as Utah pecked away at the lead. Despite tying Memphis in the fourth, Utah never led in the game. "We stepped up our game, got three stops in a row, scored three times in a row and executed most of the rest of the way," Memphis coach Dave Joerger said of holding off Utah. NOTES: The Grizzlies, who hadnt played since Saturday remained undefeated (4-0) when coming off three days rest. ... Memphis native Ian Clark, a Utah rookie out of Belmont, did not play in the game. ... Utahs only win in their last 12 was over the Philadelphia 76ers. ... Memphis reserves shot 42.9 per cent, ending a streak of 14 games where the backups shot at least 50 per cent. Gareon Conley Jersey . The Packers, Lions and Bears were a combined 35-15 and as long as Jay Cutler can say healthy, all three could make the playoffs in 2012. Dwayne Harris Jersey . - The Cleveland Indians will place centerfielder Michael Bourn on the disabled list before their opener at Oakland on March 31. http://www.officialauthenticraidersstore.com/authentic-jordy-nelson-jersey.html . They were right in that they responded to coach Randy Carlyles goaltending switch to erase a two-goal deficit. Brandon Parker Raiders Jersey . Canada will host Japan in a World Group first-round match in 2015. It will be a rematch of their first-round clash last year when Japan defeated Canada 4-1 to reach the World Group quarter-finals for the first time in its history. Rashaan Melvin Jersey . Although Spain could still advance out of the group stage, the game may have signalled the end of the run by a generation of Spanish stars whose quick passing, "tiki-taka" style delighted the world and helped them win the last three major tournaments.Sam Bergs lawsuit against the Canadian Hockey League has done more than polarize the countrys hockey community. It has split his family. Berg said his 71-year-old grandfather William, a retired General Motors employee, is ashamed of him for filing a landmark class action lawsuit against the Niagara IceDogs and the Ontario Hockey League last month. His grandfather, who now spends his days driving the Zamboni at the local rink in Beamsville, denies hes ashamed. He says simply he has a difference of opinion with his 18-year-old grandson. I have a different point of view, William Berg says. Thats all. I like Sam, I really like Sam. Sam Bergs case is one of three legal actions that may reshape major-junior hockey in Canada. Berg has asked an Ontario Superior Court to confirm that the 1,300-odd, mostly teenaged players in the Canadian Hockey League are employees of their teams. If they are employees, Berg argues, then they ought to be paid at least minimum wage. Some players in the CHL work more than 60 hours per week but make as little as $40 in compensation, his lawsuit alleges. Before Berg filed his lawsuit in a Toronto court, detailing his falling out with his former team, the IceDogs, Berg and his father Bill, who played 10 years in the NHL with the Islanders, Leafs, Rangers and Seantors, talked about what Sam Berg would likely be forced to deal with. There would be attacks on social media and in public. I have people giving me the finger all the time and I knew that would be the case, Sam Berg told TSN in an interview over lunch this week in a Hamilton diner. We knew this was going to be a problem for a lot of people. In Canada, hockey is more than a game. Everyone seems to know who Sidney Crosby is and who won the Stanley Cup the past five years. For someone to want to change the game, thats hard for people to accept. But without change, wed still have segregation and women wouldnt be able to vote. And we hoped some people would support us. When my dad was involved with the NHL players strike in 1994, it was a millionaires versus billionaires fight. Today, we figured that this would be seen as players just fighting for minimum wage. So we hoped we would at least get some support. Sam Berg insists his lawsuit isnt sour grapes. This is about helping all players, he says. What can you say about a system that pays some players the same as what they earned decades ago? The Bergs are a close-knit family. They live on a farm in Beamsville, Ont., with roots in the community that date back 300 years. The vineyard on their bucolic farm had a section cut out years ago to make room for a shinny rink where Sam and his sister Annie spent years learning to skate alongside their father, uncle Bob, who played in the American Hockey League, and their grandfather. We have spent a lot of time together, Sam Berg said. Family dinners, Christmases. We are close. So Berg was stunned at what happened when his grandpa found out about his lawsuit. William Berg called his son Bill, the former NHLer. He started going off to my dad about how our family would be portrayed in the community, Sam Berg said. He said people in the area would know him as the guy whose grandson ruined hockey. He was going on about how some teams are losing money and this would put them over the edge. My dad went back at him and asked when he became an expert in player contracts and the financial positions of the CHL teams and minimum-wage laws. Bill Berg, the former Maple Leaf, declined to comment on the rift within his family, other than to say he supports his sons efforts. It wasnt long before grandfather and grandson met at the Beamsville rink. The first thing he did, right away, was to talk aboout the finances of CHL teams and how I was going to screw up the league, said Sam Berg, whose sister Annie, a grade 11 student, recently committed to play hockey at St.ddddddddddddLawrence University. Then he asked me if I was planning to sue St. Lawrence University, too. My grandfather thinks this will destroy some CHL teams in small markets, but they dont look destitute to me, Sam Berg said. They have revenue sharing already. Maybe they need to do more sharing. I tried to tell my grandpa he was not banker to these teams, so he really doesnt know, but he just said to me, why would they lie? You are going to ruin them. My grandpa thinks because this is hockey, that everyone is respectable. And then, a parting shot. He said, What do I say if people ask me if its my grandson who is ruining hockey? Sam Berg said. I told him he didnt have to tell anyone I am his grandson. He didnt say anything. He just walked away. William Berg said he is worried, like many hockey fans, that if his grandsons lawsuit is successful, that some junior hockey teams will be forced to fold. I cant grasp Sams reasons for doing this, he said. I had two boys go through hockey and it was fine for them. There are teams like London and St. Catharines that could clearly afford to pay players, but what about the other teams that are borderline in Belleville or Peterborough. They are on tight budgets and if they fold, how many chances does that take away from boys. After playing with the single-A Lincoln Blades and Peak Academy, a Toronto-area high school that specializes in sports programs, Sam Berg was drafted by the United States Hockey Leagues Muskegon Lumberjacks. The OHLs IceDogs, who had drafted Berg in the 12th round of the 2012 draft, suggested he be better off in the OHL than playing in the USHL, which may have been a route to a scholarship at an NCAA team. So the IceDogs made a sweet offer, Berg says. He says they promised him that if he played a single game, he would be granted an irrevocable guaranteed four-year education scholarship. After a training camp where he scored twice in five games last season, Berg said he fell out of favour with the coaching staff after 16 games and then was demoted to the St. Catharines Falcons, a Junior B team. After a trade to the Thorold Black Hawks, Berg said he injured his shoulder in a game so badly that he would need surgery if he was going to keep playing. He decided along with his family it was time for full-time school. I called the IceDogs and said Id be needing my scholarship because I was going back to school, Berg says. They didnt say anything. They just hung up the phone on me. IceDogs owner Bill Burke declined to comment and referred questions about the lawsuit to CHL commissioner David Branch, who did not respond to an email seeking comment. IceDogs coach and general manager Marty Williamson told The Toronto Star that Bergs scholarship package was voided because he didnt report this fall to training camp. He quit, Williamson said. You cant just quit and not show up. The team is paying for one semester of Bergs courses at McMaster University this year. I guess I have a problem with it, too, because Sam wasnt there that long with the team, William Berg says. If it was Gretzky or someone who had been in the league for four years, fine. Maybe Sam got a raw deal, but he wasnt there that long. If he had put in a year or two, then maybe I would agree with it, but after five or 10 or 15 games, I think hes going out on a limb about it. But Im not ashamed of Sam, William says quietly after a long pause. This is a just a difference of opinion. A difference of opinion not only in the Berg family, but across the country.
