Posted:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Zach Randolph had 16 points and eight rebounds for Memphis and the Grizzlies held off the Charlotte Bobcats for a 95-92 victory on Friday in the final exhibition game for both teams.

DeMarre Carroll had the tiebreaking layup with 13 seconds left, while Sam Young added 13 points. The Grizzlies (3-5) lost point guard Mike Conley to a sprained right ankle in the first quarter in the game, which began at 10:30 a.m. and was played in front of more than 16,000, high-pitched middle school students.

Allen Iverson worked out before tipoff but said it's a "long shot" he'll be cleared for the Grizzlies' the season opener Wednesday against Detroit.

Raymond Felton had 15 points and Boris Diaw scored 14 for the Bobcats (2-6), who were outrebounded 48-37.
