Recap


Grizzlies 90, Bucks 80:
Zach Randolph had 15 points and 17 rebounds for his 19th double-double to help host Memphis beat Milwaukee for the fifth straight time.

Rudy Gay tallied 13 points and Marc Gasol had 12 and 12 rebounds as the Grizzlies won their third straight game despite shooting just 40.9 percent.

Milwaukee shot a porous 35.3 percent while setting a season low for points. Monta Ellis went 1-of-14 from the field and scored just four points. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 26 points but hit just 9 of 26 shots.

Memphis led 43-34 at halftime as Milwaukee shot just 26.1 percent in the half. The Grizzlies held the Bucks to 12 points in the second quarter and 17 in the third and took a 15-point lead into the final quarter.

Milwaukee trailed by 17 midway through the fourth but pulled within 85-74 with 2:30 left on Ellis’ only field goal of the contest after 13 consecutive misses. The Bucks were down by nine in the final minute before a 3-pointer by Marreese Speights pushed the lead to 90-78.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Memphis had a 56-44 rebounding edge. … Golden State’s Tim Hardaway holds the dubious record of going 0-for-17 from the field. Hardaway experienced the rough night against the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 1991-92 campaign. … Tony Allen had four of the Grizzlies’ 11 steals.
