Grizzlies 79, Hawks 76

Memphis forward Zach Randolph scored 20 points, leading the Grizzlies to a come-from-behind 79-76 win over the sloppy Atlanta Hawks.

Memphis beat Atlanta for the second time this season despite getting only eight points from center Marc Gasol and despite attempting only one free throw.

The Grizzlies took control in third quarter, outscoring the Hawks 24-11.

It is a big win for the Grizzlies (27-22), who had lost two straight and have been without injured point guard Mike Conley for seven games.

The Hawks (25-24) have lost three straight.
