TONY Allen led the way as the Memphis Grizzlies fought back from a huge deficit to get back on track with a 110-105 victory over the suddenly skidding Rockets on Friday in Houston (Saturday, Manila time).

The Rockets led 70-55 in the third but the Grizzlies rallied for the win, bouncing back from a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Allen had a season-high 22 points for Memphis, which notched its 25th win in 37 outings.

Mike Conley scored 17 points on 7 of 14 shooting, while Zach Randolph came off the bench to deliver a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds.

The Rockets absorbed a second straight loss after bowing to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

James Harden came up with 27 points and fell just a rebounds short of a double-double, while Eric Gordon came off the bench to score 13 points on 4 of 11 shooting.
