Recap

Grizzlies 88, Magic 82: Marc Gasol collected 19 points and 13 rebounds and Zach Randolph added 16 points and 14 boards as Memphis held on for its 10th win in its last 12 home meetings with Orlando. 

Mike Conley contributed 14 points and seven assists and Ed Davis chipped in 10 points off the bench for the Grizzlies, who won their sixth straight despite going 3-for-16 from 3-point range and shooting 58.6 percent from the free-throw line. 

Arron Afflalo scored 20 points and dished out seven assists and Moe Harkless had 19 points and nine rebounds for the Magic, who have lost 16 of 17 overall and 10 straight on the road. Orlando had only seven players available and was down to five by the end of the game after big men Nikola Vucevic and Andrew Nicholson fouled out.

Memphis led 43-38 at halftime and began to pull away in the third quarter, holding the Magic to 6-for-20 shooting in the quarter to open a 67-53 advantage entering the fourth.

Orlando stormed back and pulled within 72-69 on Harkless' breakaway dunk with 5:20 left, but the short-handed Magic couldn't get any closer. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Randolph has 32 double-doubles this season after playing in only 28 games last season because of injury. … Harkless has scored in double figures in three consecutive games for the first time in his career. … Magic PG Jameer Nelson sat out with a strained patella tendon in his left knee. He is listed as day-to-day but will be evaluated further upon his return to Orlando on Saturday.
