NEW YORK (AP) Jeff Green scored 16 points, including two free throws with 6.2 seconds left, to help the Memphis Grizzlies hold off the New York Knicks 91-85 on Friday night for their fifth straight win.

Matt Barnes had 12 points and Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol each had 10 for Memphis.

Jose Calderon led the Knicks with 18 points. Kristaps Porzingis had 17 points and 10 rebounds.

The Grizzlies led by nine points in the fourth quarter but could not pull away from the Knicks, who were playing without Carmelo Anthony.

Arron Afflalo's 3-pointer brought New York within 87-85 with 35 seconds left. After Gasol missed a layup, Afflalo missed a potential tying jumper with 8 seconds remaining.

Afflalo then fouled Green, and he made his two free throws.
