MIAMI (AFP) - Mike Conley scored 24 points and Marc Gasol added 22 points and 10 rebounds to power Memphis over Miami 103-95 on Saturday in the National Basketball Association league and snap a four-game losing skid.

Beno Udrih added 11 points and Tayshaun Prince contributed 10 for the Grizzlies, who played a fourth consecutive game without inside star Zach Randolph, who has a knee injury.

Dwyane Wade, whose 31-point performance sparked Miami over Cleveland and former team-mate LeBron James two nights earlier, scored 25 points while reserve Danny Granger scored 18 points and Britain's Luol Deng added 16.

The Heat fell to 14-17 and have not won back-to-back games in more than a month.

Memphis took a big lead but Miami trimmed the deficit to a single point several times in the fourth quarter, only to fall short of overtaking the Grizzlies each time.

Conley's floater gave Memphis a 93-86 lead with 2min 54sec remaining. Mario Chalmers' three-point play and two Chris Andersen free throws pulled the Heat within 93-91 but Gasol added two free throws and later blocked a Chalmers shot in the closing seconds to seal Miami's fate.

Heat forward Chris Bosh missed his eighth game in a row with a left calf strain.

Memphis improve to 22-8 and are fourth in the Western Conference.
