    MIAMI (AP) -- Jason Williams had 17 points and six assists to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 97-82 exhibition victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday.

    The start of the game was moved to noon from 7:30 p.m. to avoid conflict with Game 3 of the World Series between the Florida Marlins and New York Yankees. Admission at American Airlines Arena was free and there was a crowd of 10,241.

    Pau Gasol added 15 points and eight rebounds for Memphis (5-1), which has one preseason game remaining.

    Rafer Alston, who started in place of injured rookie point guard Dwyane Wade, and Eddie Jones each had 13 points for the Heat (5-2) in the final exhibition game. They open the regular season Oct. 28 in Philadelphia.

    Alston had 10 points and three assists in the first quarter, which ended with the Heat leading 32-17 after shooting 73.7 percent from the field.

    The Grizzlies outscored the Heat 31-11 over the final 13:15 of the game.

    The Heat were also without starters Caron Butler and Brian Grant, while Memphis was without Mike Miller.
