However, the Grizzlies used a 14-2 run in the third quarter to take control of the game and led by as many as 11 points down the stretch en route to their 12th straight regular-season home win dating to the tail end of the 2011-12 campaign.

Gasol finished with 22 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Randolph, meanwhile, racked up 16 points and 18 rebounds for his third double-double in as many games and helped Memphis total 51 rebounds. Quincy Pondexter added 14 points off the bench in one of his finest games since joining the Grizzlies last season.

The Jazz went winless on their three-game road trip after getting outscored 56-44 in the second half.
