MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Jon Leuers career night and Ed Davis double-double helped the Memphis Grizzlies fill a void left by two key injuries. Leuer scored a career-high 23 points, Davis added 21 points and 12 rebounds, and the Grizzlies made the best of their makeshift lineup to defeat the Phoenix Suns 110-91 Tuesday night. Leuer and Davis got plenty of playing time because of injuries to front-line starters Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. "When they are out, we just want to fill in for them," said Davis, who started in Randolphs spot. Leuer, who came off the bench, connected on 10 of 13 shots, Davis made 8 of 11, and seven players finished in double figures for Memphis, which shot 55 per cent from the floor. In addition to a career-high in points, Leuer had three blocks, another career-best, and matched his career-high with nine rebounds. "I think early in the game getting in there and grabbing a few rebounds and knocking my first couple of shots down (helped) and getting some easy baskets," said Leuer, who entered the game averaging 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds. "You get into a rhythm after that. . Confidence starts to build, and from there on I was just feeling good." Mike Conley had 18 points and 14 assists for Memphis, which snapped a four-game losing streak at home. Marcus Morris led the Suns with 18 points, Goran Dragic added 16 and Miles Plumlee had 11. Memphis played its second straight game without Randolph, who had ingrown toenail surgery Saturday. Gasol is out indefinitely with a left knee sprain. Kosta Koufos, starting in place of Gasol, finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Tony Allen scored 11 points. Tayshaun Prince and Jerryd Bayless had 10 points each. "The key is to try and spread it around because I cant do it by myself," Conley said. "Tony (Allen) cant do it by himself. We have to have everybody collectively chip in." The turnaround in the game came in the second half when Memphis hit two-thirds of its shot and outscored the Suns 64-37. "The second half was terrible," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "We have to be able to fight over screens. We have to get after it. We let their guy just shove you in the back. If we have no more fight than that, what else can you do?" The Suns carried a 54-46 lead into the break as Morris had 15 points off the Suns bench. Morris connected on 6 of 12 from the field, including 2 of 4 from outside the arc. Conley had 11 to lead the Grizzlies. Memphis heated up in the third, hitting 11 of its first 15 shots to go on a 23-9 run and the Grizzlies outscored Phoenix 36-20 in the third for an 82-74 lead heading to the fourth. Davis had 11 points in the third as Memphis ended up hitting 16 of 23 shots. "It stared in the second half," Plumlee said of the Suns downfall. "I think we got too relaxed. They turned it up, and thats what happens." Leuer stayed hot in the final quarter and Memphis lead eventually reached 21 points. "We all have to pick it up from the first guy to the last guy on the bench," Davis said. "We cant replace Marc, and we cant replace (Randolph), but we all can replace some of the things they do."

DAVIE, Fla. -- Dion Jordan of the Miami Dolphins has been suspended for the first four games of the season after testing positive for a stimulant prohibited under the NFLs policy on use of performance-enhancing substances. The Dolphins announced the suspension Thursday. In a statement released by the team, Jordan took "full responsibility" for the positive test. "I recently learned from the NFL that I tested positive for stimulants that are banned under the NFL policy," Jordans statement read. "I worked carefully with my advisors and the union to investigate the test results, and I take full responsibility for the test results." Jordans statement also included an apology for the "impact of this situation" on his teammates, coaches, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, his fans and family. "We were disappointed to learn about Dions suspension," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said through the team. "Dion has accepted responsibility for his actions and is committed to improving, both on and off the field, in preparation for the upcoming year.dddddddddddd" Jordan was the third overall pick in the 2013 draft out of Oregon. He says he added more than 15 pounds of bulk this off-season in an effort to improve his game, earning praise from Philbin for being able to play faster as well. "I would never sacrifice my speed for weight," Jordan said last month. He played in all 16 games with Miami a year ago, with 26 tackles and two sacks. Jordan will be able to participate in training camp and preseason games. Once the regular season starts he will not be permitted to be part of the Dolphins active roster until Sept. 29, according to an NFL spokesman. Jordan will miss games against AFC East rivals New England and Buffalo, as well as matchups with Kansas City and Oakland. The first game he would be eligible for would be Oct. 12 against Green Bay, a game that follows the Dolphins bye week. "I will continue to work extremely hard during training camp and preseason," Jordan said. "During the suspension, I will stay in top shape and will be ready to contribute upon my return." cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
