MIAMI -- Ray Allen continued his torrid pace and helped the Miami Heat avoid another home loss. Jordi Alba Jersey . Allen scored 18 points as the Heat defeated the Memphis Grizzles 91-86 on Friday night and avoided losing at home for the third time in their last four games. Allen is averaging 18 points per game in Miamis past five games. "Its really just team oriented," Allen said. "When we play well, we move the ball around. Theres no telling whos going to be the recipient. Whether its offensively or defensively, somebodys got to make plays out there. "On any given night, based on who we play, it could be anybody." Miami rallied from an 84-77 deficit with 4:08 remaining and scored 11 unanswered points. Allens 3-pointer with 3:27 remaining began the comeback and Dwyane Wades jumper with 1:32 left tied it at 84. Wades two free throws with 1:04 left gave the Heat their first lead since early in the third quarter. "We had to make plays on both ends in the fourth quarter and manage the game with intensity and the right plays," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. After Mike Miller missed a 3-point attempt with 51 seconds remaining for the Grizzlies, LeBron James jumper with 24 seconds left capped the Heats late run for an 88-84 advantage. James finished with 15 points, and Wade and Mario Chalmers scored 14 points each for the Heat. James also had seven assists and six rebounds. "It was one of those grind-out, playoff-type games," said James, who sat out Miamis game at Boston on Wednesday because of back spasms. "No matter what happens, you just have to try to make plays to help you win. Myself, and D-Wade and the rest of the guys made plays down the stretch." Zach Randolph scored 25 points and had 14 rebounds for the Grizzlies. Marc Gasol finished with 14 points, but left because of a sprained ankle midway through the third quarter and didnt return. "We turned the basketball over way too much," Memphis coach David Joerger said of his teams six fourth-quarter turnovers. "Theyve got good players that made big plays." Chalmers scored eight points during a 16-4 run that closed the third quarter and helped Miami erase a 12-point gap. Chris Andersens tip-in at the buzzer ended the surge and tied it at 68. "We got kind of stagnant toward the end," Randolph said. "Overall, we played good. We just couldnt make shots toward the end." The Grizzlies opened the second half on an 11-2 spurt behind two baskets each from Gasol and Randolph. But Gasol injured his left ankle after colliding with Chris Boshs left foot. Gasol left for the dressing room with 6:20 remaining and didnt return. "He got hurt and then the game kind of changed," Randolph said. Mike Conleys three-point play with 5:13 left in the third period gave the Grizzlies their first double-digit lead at 62-52. "The Memphis Grizzlies are a very good team thats playing well and we just had to find a way in any way possible, and it all happened on the defensive end of the floor for us," Wade said. Miami rallied from two nine-point deficits early in the second quarter and finished the period on a 14-7 spurt. James jumper with 37 seconds remaining gave the Heat a 45-43 lead at halftime. Millers first basket against his former teammates was a 3-pointer that increased the Grizzlies lead to 29-29 with 9:46 remaining in the second quarter. Miller received a huge ovation from fans and hugs from his former teammates when he was presented with the Heats championship ring before the game. He was not available after the game. "We hate that hes not around here still," James said. "Its great to see our fans and our franchise pay respect to a guy who helped us win two championships." NOTES: James didnt reach double-digits in scoring until his jumper 1:03 into the fourth quarter. ... Randolph had his 398th career double-double. ... Tennis star Roger Federer, in Miami for the Sony Open, attended the game and hit several tennis balls into the stands during a timeout. Jasper Cillessen Jersey .The Williams siblings, with 25 Grand Slam titles between them, will have a couple of Madisons joining them, too.Madison Keys had a 6-4, 7-5 upset win over two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova on Saturday night, and Madison Brengle beat Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-2 in an all-U. Lionel Messi Jersey . When Reyes signed a US$106-million, six-year deal with Miami last month, there was speculation Ramirez was unhappy about being supplanted at short. But new manager Ozzie Guillen sold Ramirez on the idea.RENTON, Wash. -- Marshawn Lynch isnt expected to be present for the first day of the Seattle Seahawks training camp, close friend and former teammate Michael Robinson said Thursday. Appearing on NFL Network, Robinson said he spoke with Lynch and Seattles star running back plans to hold out of the camp that begins Friday. "I really think he just wants his position in the organization and how they view him, he just wants that recalibrated a little bit," Robinson said on NFL Network. "Hes been the face of the franchise, hes been the face of the organization." At dispute is Lynchs contract. Lynch can make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. Its the third year of a four-year contract Lynch signed with Seattle before the 2012 season. Lynch nearly skipped Junes mandatory minicamp because he wants the final two years of his contract reworked. He ultimately showed to avoid a hefty fine, but did not participate with what coach Pete Carroll said was an ankle issue. Lynch was not present for Seattles organized team activities during the off-season. Seattles plan is to make sure Lynch is healthy for the season opener against Green Bay on Sept. 4, which would mean a very light load of carries during training camp and the preseason. Even though the Seahawks staff expressed durinng the off-season getting more carries for reserves Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, Carroll reiterated during minicamp that Seattles run game begins with Lynch. Gerard Pique Jersey. "We have rested him a lot in the off-season. He takes a big pounding during the year. It takes him a long time to get his body back to where he doesnt feel the rigours of the season thats past," Carroll said in June. "In this case its unique but he is a unique player and he has a unique role on our football team, so we have to do what we have to do to take care of him." Robinson said he believes that Lynch will eventually play this season. "I think Marshawn will be playing football this year. I dont know how theyre going to get it done, I dont know how theyre going to make it work but that team is not the championship team that they can be without Beast Mode," Robinson said. Lynch can be fined for missing training camp and hes shown the past being adverse to losing money via fines. Last season, Lynch begrudgingly began speaking to the media during the playoffs in an effort to avoid hefty financial penalties from the league. That included memorable sessions during Super Bowl week where he answered questions for about 20 combined minutes during three days of league-mandated media availability.
