Recap: Memphis vs. Golden State
Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Zach Randolph led six Memphis players in double figures with 23 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in the Grizzlies' 108-90 rout of the Golden State Warriors.
Mike Conley added 20 points and Marc Gasol finished with 18 for the Grizzlies, who had dropped two of their previous three entering the game.
Mike Miller chipped in 15 points off the bench after going 4-of-5 from 3-point range, while Tony Allen and Tayshaun Prince finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively.
"We just got back to powering the ball inside and trying to play the passing lane, and pressing up on the wings, showing high on the pick-and-roll coverage," said Grizzlies guard Tony Allen. "It's everyone paying attention to detail for 48 minutes. This was a perfect sign of the Grizzlies playing hard and playing together."
Stephen Curry scored a team-high 22 points and Andre Iguodala added 19 points for the Warriors, who have dropped two straight.
"I'm very disappointed. It's very easy to make the excuse that we played last night, but that's not an excuse. We didn't execute. They were the more physical team and it's just a disappointing loss for us," said Warriors head coach Mark Jackson. "We just couldn't get over the hump. This is a good basketball team that pretty much has its way against us. We've got to figure them out. We've got to figure them out."
