    Garrity's buzzer-beater lifts Magic past Grizzlies

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Pat Garrity hit a running one-hander at the buzzer to give the Orlando Magic a 67-65 exhibition victory over Memphis on Monday night.

    Garrity made the winning 20-footer after the Grizzlies' Dahntay Jones tied it with a 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds to play.

    Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 13 points, including seven in the fourth quarter. Hedo Turkoglu added 11 points and Garrity finished with 10. The Magic shot 30.6 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from the line.

    Jones scored 10 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter, and Shane Battier added 10 points for Memphis. The Grizzlies also struggled from the field, shooting 30.3 percent.

    The Grizzlies played without starting guard Mike Miller (sore right foot) and newcomer Bobby Jackson (pulled right hamstring). Orlando's Grant Hill sat out the game because of an abdominal strain.

    Orlando's Steve Francis left the game after being struck in the head during a third-quarter collision. He was down on the floor for about 3 minutes, but was not seriously injured and is expected to play Thursday night in Orlando against Miami.
