Randolph's big game powers Grizzlies by 'Melo, Nuggets

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (NBA.com exclusive) -- Zach Randolph wasn't about to let the Memphis Grizzlies blow it down stretch Sunday against the Denver Nuggets.

Randolph scored a season-high tying 32 points, including 10 of Memphis' final 16 points in the fourth quarter, and grabbed an NBA season-high 24 rebounds to help the Grizzlies hold off Denver 102-96 Sunday at FedExForum.

Forward Rudy Gay added 19 points, Marc Gasol had 14 and O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley each had 11 for a Grizzlies squad that watched Denver cut a 23-point first-half deficit to two points on two occasions in the fourth quarter.

Randolph's 3-point play with 2:20 left in the fourth put Memphis ahead 93-88 after the Nuggets had made it a two-point game on forward Carmelo Anthony's 18-footer with 3:22 left.

Leading 97-91 with less than a minute to play, Randolph then put the game away with a 3-pointer from the top of the key. He finished 13-of-21 from the field and pulled down nine offensive rebounds in registering his 15th double-double of the season.

"They made a run and we stuck with it and got the 'W'," Randolph said. "Tonight, you know, I was feeling good. I was just trying to be aggressive on both ends.

"Winning games like this is what helps our confidence," Randolph said. "Carmelo came in and took some big shots, but we just kept playing. It's what we have to do. It's the NBA. Every team is going to make a run."

The win snapped Memphis' eight-game losing streak to Denver, which hadn't lost to the Grizzlies since April of 2007.

Anthony, the NBA's leading scorer, finished with 41 points on 13-of-26 shooting for the Nuggets, who were without point guard Chauncey Billups (left groin strain) for the second consecutive game. Denver (19-9), off to its best 27-game start in team history, was coming off a 98-92 road loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday.

"They jumped on us early," said Anthony, who had scored 42 points in a 133-123 victory over the Grizzlies in Denver on Nov. 1. "It was a wake-up call, especially for me, to be down like that [in the first half]."

Rookie guard Ty Lawson went scoreless and dished out two assists in replacement of Billups, who injured his groin in the third period of Denver's 111-101 victory over the Houston Rockets last Wednesday.

Nene had 19 points and seven rebounds and Kenyon Martin had 12 points for Denver, which connected on just 34 percent (16-of-47) of its shots in a first half in which it fell behind 50-27 midway through the second quarter.

Memphis meanwhile sizzled from the field in the first half, shooting 59.6 percent. Gay scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half on 7-of-9 shooting, while Randolph, Gasol and rookie center Hasheem Thabeet combined to go 11-of-16 from the field before the break.

"I thought our guys played hard from the start," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. "We jumped out on them. We withstood the run and showed a little poise in withstanding that run. We stepped up big and our defense was good with 40 percent shooting [by Denver]. It was a superb first half and they had great poise down the stretch."

Memphis (12-15), which improved to 8-5 at home, connected on nine of its first 12 shots in building an early 19-12 advantage. Randolph and Gasol combined to score 11 of the Grizzlies' first 17 points on a combined 5-of-6 shooting.

Denver fell behind by as many as 15 points in the opening quarter, as Memphis would go on to shoot 71.4 percent (15-of-21) in the period. Thabeet's one-handed jam over Nuggets forward Chris Andersen with 19.2 left in the first gave Memphis a 33-19 lead after one.

Denver shot just 26.1 percent in the first period, and wasn't much better in the second, as the Nuggets missed nine of their first 12 shot attempts over the first 6:07 of the second quarter.

But Anthony, who scored just four first-quarter points, began to warm up, scoring 14 of the Nuggets' final 16 points before the half.

Anthony's two free throws with 4:40 left in the fourth cut Memphis' lead to 88-86 before Randolph answered 17 seconds later with a tip of a Gasol miss.

Two minutes later, after Anthony's 18-footer pulled Denver within two again, Randolph's 3-point play gave Memphis a 93-88 cushion.

"I'm really comfortable," Randolph said. "I think the guys know the way I play, and I know how they play. We're really comfortable together. We're getting more comfortable together every game."
