MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jon Leuer added 16 points and a career-best 12 boards to lead the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies to a 94-85 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.

Mike Conley had 13 points and Jerryd Bayless finished with 11 points, including a late 3-pointer to preserve the win and end a two-game slide. Conley also had seven assists.

Andrew Nicholson and Jameer Nelson led the Magic with 19 points apiece. Nicholson also grabbed 11 rebounds while hitting 8 of 12 from the field. Arron Afflalo scored 17 points, Glenn Davis finished with 16 and Victor Oladipo added 10 in Orlando's sixth straight loss.

The Magic reserves managed only four points — all from Jason Maxiell. Leuer led the Memphis reserves, who scored 38 points.

Memphis held a 14-point lead with just over 7 minutes left, but had to weather a final push from the Magic.
