Rockets rally for 93-86 win over Grizzlies

MEMPHIS -

Chandler Parsons scored 17 points, Omri Casspi added 16 and the Houston Rockets overcame a double-digit deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 93-86 on Monday night.
    
Houston (10-5) trailed for most of the night and its 93 points were a season low, but the Rockets made a 14-2 run early in the fourth quarter, pushing ahead 67-65 on a pair free throws by Casspi with 8:26 remaining.
    
The Rockets played without All-Star guard James Harden, who missed his second straight game with a sore left foot. They've won five of their past six.
    
It was the Grizzlies' first full game since 7-foot-1 center Marc Gasol was lost indefinitely to a sprained MCL in his left knee. Memphis (7-7) had a 46-32 lead early in the third quarter, but couldn't hold it down the stretch.
    
Tayshaun Prince led Memphis with 16 points.
