Hornets lose; Kaminsky sprains ankle

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP/WCNC) - Mike Conley had 31 points, Marc Gasol flirted with a triple-double and the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Charlotte Hornets 105-90 on Monday night for their fifth straight win.

The Grizzlies (9-5) controlled the tempo from the start, jumping out to a 16-4 lead. They pushed their advantage to 24 at halftime, shooting 58 percent from the field, including 10 of 16 from 3-point range.

Hornets forward Frank Kaminsky sprained his ankle in the loss.  He had 23 points and three blocks.
