                    === Grizzlies top Magic ===
 
 Orlando,  FL (SportsNetwork.com)  - Zach Randolph scored a game-high 20 points
 to  lead the  Memphis Grizzlies  to an  86-81 win  over the  Orlando Magic  on
 Wednesday.
 
 Courtney  Lee added 17 points while Tayshaun Prince and Nick Calathes finished
 with  14  and 12 points, respectively,  for the Grizzlies, winners in three of
 their last four games.
 
 "This is a huge win for us. There's a big difference in the West between being
 four games over .500 or being six games over .500," said Grizzlies coach David
 Joerger.
 
 In the third quarter, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol left the game after injuring
 his  left knee.  Gasol, who missed 23 games earlier this season after injuring
 the same knee, banged knees with Orlando guard Jameer Nelson.
 
 "It was our game, I thought, right there. We let one slip away," Harris said.
 
 Gasol  fell to the  ground in obvious pain. He eventually limped off the court
 and to the locker room.
 
 He had four points and five rebounds before exiting.
 
 Nikola  Vucevic had  13 points and 10 rebounds and Tobias Harris finished with
 13  points and seven boards for the Magic, who had a three-game winning streak
 snapped.
 
 Glen Davis scored 12 points and Arron Afflalo added 10 in the setback.
 
 The  Grizzlies  held a  64-61 lead at  the start of  the fourth quarter. After
 Orlando  took a  65-64  lead just  over  1  1/2 minutes  into  the frame,  the
 Grizzlies scored six straight points to go up 70-65.
 
 An  11-7 swing put the Magic in front 77-76 with 4:24 left as Vucevic nailed a
 20-footer.  The Grizzlies,  however, used a 10-2  run to go up 86-79 with nine
 seconds  remaining, and  Orlando couldn't get closer than five the rest of the
 way.
 
 Randolph scored nine points on 4-of-4 shooting in the first quarter as Memphis
 jumped  out to a  24-17 lead after 12 minutes. The Grizzlies shot 52.4 percent
 in the frame.
 
 In  the second quarter, Memphis' lead swelled to 13 points, 36-23, after an Ed
 Davis  alley-oop slam,  but the Magic scored  seven straight to make it a two-
 possession  game. The  Grizzlies then pushed the spread back to double digits,
 42-32.  Harris  added a jumper  with 42  seconds left to  make it 42-34 at the
 break.
 
 Lee  gave the  Grizzlies a 48-38 lead with  his jumper at the 8:06 mark, but a
 12-2  surge from the Magic tied things up at 50-50 with just under six minutes
 to go in the third.
 
 Neither  side built  a  lead larger  than  four the  rest of  the  way as  the
 Grizzlies took a 64-61 lead into the final frame.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 This  was the final  game before the All-Star break for both teams ... Memphis
 outscored  the Magic 46-32 in the paint ... The Grizzlies scored 19 points off
 14 Orlando turnovers ... The Magic outrebounded the Grizzlies 42-36.
