(Saturday, December 28th)

Final Score: Memphis 120, Denver 99

Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Zach Randolph had 20 points, six rebounds and five assists as the Memphis Grizzlies routed the Denver Nuggets 120-99 on Saturday night.

Ed Davis netted 17 points, while Jerryd Bayless added 15 points for the Grizzlies, who had dropped six of their last eight games heading into the tilt.

Mike Conley tallied 14 points, six rebounds and four assists, while James Johnson registered 14 points, seven rebounds and six helpers in the triumph.

"We're playing very hard, we're playing very good basketball," Conley said. "It's starting to click for a lot of guys."

Ty Lawson had 20 points and eight assists for Denver, which has lost six straight, and Wilson Chandler added 19.

The Grizzlies trailed 56-55 at the break, but a 12-2 run to start the second half helped them seize control of the contest. Conley netted six points during the surge, which was capped on two Randolph free throws for a 67-58 Memphis margin with 7:58 left in the third.

"We gave up 30 points in the third quarter and 35 in the fourth quarter. You are not going to win any games, especially on the road, against any team giving up numbers like that," Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said.

Denver led 29-27 after a quarter of play.
