LOS ANGELES -- After a rough start to the season, Mike Conley was thinking of winning some games, not making the playoffs. What a difference a few months has made. The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Los Angeles Lakers 102-90 on Sunday night to move a game ahead of idle Phoenix in the race for the final Western Conference playoff berth. "Its amazing were in this position," said Conley, who scored 24 points. Marc Gasol added 18 points and 15 rebounds and Mike Miller had 13 points for the Grizzlies, who head to Phoenix for a showdown with the Suns on Monday night. "Theyre playing very well," Conley said of the Suns. "These are the games we get up for." The Grizzlies are 2-0 against the Suns this season, winning by 19 points at home and by eight in Phoenix. "Its going to be a good test to go to Phoenix and play a team that is fighting for the same goal and can get hot really quick," Gasol said. Jodie Meeks led the Lakers with 20 points in their last home game of a miserable season that has included a franchise-worst 55 losses with two games remaining. "Its just a tough year," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "Obviously it went off the rails when everybody was going down with injuries and trades and different things. Management will be on it this summer to get a good roster. Theyll do a good job and hopefully people will stay well and then well see what happens." The Lakers lost their seventh in a row overall and fifth straight at Staples Center. Wesley Johnson added 15 points and 15 rebounds, and Jordan Hill had 10 points and 10 rebounds. Tied at 61 in the third, the Grizzlies pulled away on a 26-8 run to lead 87-69 going into the fourth. Conley scored six points, Tayshaun Prince had seven and Gasol added six in the spurt that produced their first double-digit lead of the game. Memphis shot 68 per cent in the period. "I dont know how many stops in a row we had at the end of the third, but we came out and guarded," Gasol said. "We were pressuring the ball, we got on our defensive lines, and we rebounded. That most times takes care of a lot of things." Nick Young, who finished with 14 points off the bench, had the Lakers only field goal over the final 5 1/2 minutes of the third, when they shot 29 per cent and were outrebounded 14-6. Memphis led by 22 points early in the fourth, when the Lakers got no closer than 12. "This was a good sign on how we finished out the game," Prince said. "I hope we can carry it over to tomorrow." The Lakers kept it close in the first half, leading by nine before trailing 53-52 at the break. Notes: Gasol hugged his brother Pau after the game; Pau has been out for the Lakers with vertigo. ...

Ray Allen Thunder Jersey . The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years.

Jefferson Farfan opened the scoring in the 39th, converting from close range after Sead Kolasinac outran Hannover defender Marcelo on the left. Farfan instigated Schalkes second goal five minutes later, playing through a brilliant ball for Atsuto Uchida, who cut back for Klaas Jan Huntelaar and he in turn left it for the better positioned Max Meyer to stroke home. Huntelaar headed over early in the second half and Meyer drew a good stop from Hannover keeper Ron-Robert Zieler as the home side came closest to adding to the scoreline. "I think we played very well," Meyer said. "Thats three wins from three since the winter break. I think the training camp together did us well. It brought us closer together as a team." Schalke opened a four-point gap over Borussia Moenchengladbach to consolidate the last Champions League qualification place, while Hannover remains 10th after Tayfun Korkuts first defeat as coach. "Its a shame we couldnt get a point here," Zieler said. Already without injured captain Benedikt Hoewedes, Schalke has further concerns after defensive midfielder Roman Neustaedter went off with a knee injury in the first half, while Uchida went down clutching his knee late in the game. Schalke hosts Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions LLeague round-of-16 tie on Feb.dddddddddddd 26. Augsburg continued its fine Bundesliga season with a 4-1 win at Stuttgart earlier Sunday, condemning the home side to its fifth consecutive loss. The visitors opened the scoring against the run of play in the 35th minute through Arkadiusz Milik and built on the lead when Halil Altintop sprung the offside trap for Andre Hahn to finish with aplomb in the 44th. Stuttgarts hopes effectively evaporated with Vedad Ibisevics sending off in the 53rd. TV replays showed the Bosnian striker struck out at Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Brackers face in an off-the-ball incident, leading the Augsburg defender to fall to the ground. Hahn scored his second of the game three minutes later for his ninth of the season. Konstantin Rausch pulled one back for Stuttgart in the 62nd, but Tobias Werner ended any hopes of an unlikely comeback two minutes later. Augsburg stretched its unbeaten run to eight league games and climbed to eighth, while Stuttgart is just two points off the relegation zone after its seventh defeat in eight games. "Its a difficult period. There were many negative highlights for us today," Stuttgart sports director Fredi Bobic said. "The first goal was the turning point. We had them under control for 30 minutes before that." Bayern Munich maintained its 13-point lead over Bayer Leverkusen with a 2-0 win at Nuremberg in the Bavarian derby on Saturday. ' ' '
