MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Jarrett Jack scored 24 points, Quincy Pondexter and Emeka Okafor added 12 apiece and the New Orleans Hornets beat the Memphis Grizzlies 97-90 in a preseason game Friday night.

The Hornets, playing their first game since the trade of star guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers this week, scored six straight points to take a 95-89 lead.

Trevor Ariza scored 11 points for New Orleans, and Carldell Johnson finished with 10, while playing only in the fourth quarter.

Tony Allen led Memphis with 17 points, while Rudy Gay and Jeremy Pargo scored 15 each. O.J. Mayo had 12, but was 5 of 15 from the field.

Both teams used multiple lineups, giving starters time early, but allowing bench players to get most of the second-half minutes.
