MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Jerryd Bayless scored five of his 28 points in overtime and added nine assists to help the Toronto Raptors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 114-110 on Friday night. Bayless split a pair of free throws with 15.7 left in overtime for a 111-109 lead, and it was enough to snap a six-game losing streak to Memphis. Gary Forbes, who came in averaging 3.8 points, finished with a career-high 20 for Toronto, while Andrea Bargnani and DeMar DeRozan added 18 apiece. Marc Gasol led the Grizzlies with a season-high 28 points, and Rudy Gay added 26 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out early in overtime. Zach Randolph returned after missing 2 12 months with a knee injury and finished with 25 points and nine rebounds. O.J. Mayo had 10 points for Memphis, but was 3 of 10 from the field. Gay hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with half a second left in regulation to tie it at 103. Toronto had one more chance, but Bargnani's heave from near midcourt was off the mark, sending the game into the extra period. After Bayless hit the first free throw with 15.7 seconds left in OT, Toronto was called for a lane violation on the second, giving the Grizzlies a chance to take the lead. But Memphis never got a shot as Conley was called for palming, and the Raptors made three of four free throws in the final 9.4 seconds to hold on. Memphis had opportunities to take over in overtime, but mistakes were plentiful. Mayo missed a dunk, Tony Allen grabbed a rebound, but it went out of bounds, and Mayo got called for an offensive foul on the break before Conley's turnover. The Grizzlies also had trouble at the free throw line, converting 31 of 51. Toronto was 29 of 38 from the line. There were 17 lead changes and nine ties in the game. The Raptors carried a 47-46 lead into halftime as DeRozan had 12 points and Bayless scored 11. Forbes added 10 for Toronto. Gasol led Memphis with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field. Gay scored 14. The game was close throughout the first half, neither team leading by more than six. There were 11 lead changes and seven ties in the first half. The Raptors stretched the lead in the second half by connecting on six of their first 10 attempts from outside the arc. Toronto opened the second half on a 15-4 run for a 12-point cushion. Bargnani had nine points during the early part of the third quarter. Randolph had 12 points in the third, but Toronto still maintained a 72-68 advantage heading into the fourth. The Raptors maintained a six- to eight-point lead in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, and Forbes' jumper gave Toronto an 84-73 lead with 8:10 left in regulation. Memphis chipped away and got within three points in the final minute before Gay's tying 3-pointer. NOTES: Memphis was 23-14 while Randolph was sidelined. When he entered the game with 2:41 left in first period, Randolph got an extended standing ovation from the Memphis fans. ... The Raptors played their first game without Leandro Barbosa, the team's third-leading scorer at 12.2 points a game who was traded to Indiana before Thursday's trade deadline. ... Gay returned to the lineup after missing one game with concussion symptoms that resulted from a blow to the head last Sunday against Denver. ... All of the Grizzlies' starters acknowledged Raptors assistant coach Johnny Davis, who was a Memphis assistant until last season when he left to join Dwayne Casey's staff in Toronto. ... The Grizzlies are now 12-2 when scoring 100 points, and Memphis' record dropped to 12-3 against sub-.500 teams. The previous two losses were to the Phoenix Suns.
