    Jeremy Lin scored 18 points, including nine straight in a fourth-quarter Brooklyn rally, Sean Kilpatrick added 23 and the Nets won for only the second time in 20 games with a 122-109 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night.

    Isaiah Whitehead scored 15 points, while Randy Foye and Caris LeVert added 14 apiece as Brooklyn shot 53 percent in snapping a two-game losing streak.

    Mike Conley led Memphis with 32 points and Marc Gasol added 18 as Memphis lost its third straight and fifth in the last seven.

    The teams had traded leads until 4:22 remained when a dunk by Rondae Hollis-Jefferson started a stretch of six straight Brooklyn points, part of a 13-2 run for the Nets. Lin scored nine straight in the spurt, including a 3-pointer to give the Nets a 116-106 lead with 1:43 left.
