NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- James Posey grabbed an inbounds pass under the basket and laid it in with 1.1 seconds remaining Wednesday, giving New Orleans a 113-111 win over Memphis.
The Hornets trailed by eight nearing the midway point of the fourth quarter but rallied to halt a Grizzlies' four-game winning streak.
Memphis was led by Rudy Gay with 26 and Zach Randolph with 25.
New Orleans moved into a tie with Memphis for fourth place in the competitive Southwest Division, 5 1/2 games behind front-running Dallas.
The Southwest is the only division in the NBA in which all five teams have winning records.
