BUZZER-BEATER
Travis Outlaw scored 21 points, including the winning 6-foot runner as the buzzer sounded, to give the Portland Trail Blazers their first road victory of the season, 106-105 over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night.

SLUMPING

STAYING
The Jazz have reached an agreement with Jerry Sloan on a one-year contract extension that will keep the coach on Utah's sideline through the end of next season. Sloan, who took over the Jazz in 1988, is the franchise's winningest coach and needs just 46 victories to become the first coach in NBA history to win 1,000 games with the same franchise.

``I was hoping to get fouled, but they didn't call anything. Then, it went in anyway, and I was like 'Oh!''' - Travis Outlaw after hitting the game-winner at the buzzer in the Trail Blazer's 106-105 victory at Memphis on Monday night.
