Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Zach Randolph led six Grizzlies in double figures with 20 points and 15 rebounds and guided Memphis to a 99-91 win over the short-handed Phoenix Suns from U.S. Airways Center.

The Grizzlies got a major boost from their reserves, with Jerryd Bayless scoring 17 points and Ed Davis totaling 16 points with 11 boards off the bench. Mike Miller also started the game on the pine and contributed 11 points, seven boards and four assists, while starters Mike Conley and Kosta Koufos added 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Phoenix was without second-leading scorer Eric Bledsoe, who sprained his right knee in a 107-88 rout of the Clippers on Monday. The Suns had won five of six entering Thursday's clash.

Goran Dragic made 13-of-22 shots for a career-high 33 points in the setback, while Channing Frye netted 14 and Miles Plumlee pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds.

The Suns' bench, which had been so reliable for most of the season, went for just 15 points on 6-of-23 shooting from the field.
