Recap


Grizzlies 84, Cavaliers 78: Zach Randolph had 19 points and eight rebounds while Marc Gasol also scored 19 points as host Memphis staged a fourth-quarter comeback to post its 10th win in 11 games.

Rudy Gay contributed 15 points and Quincy Pondexter added 10 off the bench for the Grizzlies, who improved to 2-1 on their season-high five-game homestand.

Anderson Varejao recorded 15 points and 22 rebounds, Dion Waiters also scored 15 points and Daniel Gibson chipped in 11 for Cleveland, which went winless on its three-game road trip and has lost nine of 10 overall.

Trailing by seven after three quarters, Memphis rallied to forge a 74-74 tie with 7:24 remaining as Pondexter and Gay hit back-to-back 3-pointers. The Grizzlies took their first lead since late in the opening period when Tony Allen made a pair of free throws with 2:49 to play, and Randolph hit a jump shot with 1:29 left to make it 80-76.

After Alonzo Gee's dunk got Cleveland back within two, Jerryd Bayless put away the game with a pull-up jumper and two free throws.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Grizzlies played without G Mike Conley Jr., who sat out with flu-like symptoms. Bayless started in his place and had nine points and six assists in 34 minutes. ... Randolph failed to record a double-double for the first time in 12 games this season. ... The Cavaliers held their opponent under 100 points for just the second time in 10 road contests.
