MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Wesley Matthews scored 21 points, J.J. Hickson added 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 86-84 on Friday night.
 
Rudy Gay's jumper from near the top of the key was off the mark, allowing the Trail Blazers to escape a closely played game that saw nine ties and 21 lead changes.
 
LaMarcus Aldridge had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Portland, while Nicolas Batum and Damian Lillard added 11 points apiece, Lillard also handing out eight assists.
 
Marreese Speights had a season-high 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Grizzlies in place of Zach Randolph, who missed the game with flu-like symptoms. Gay had 19 points, but was 8 of 21 from the field.
