NEW YORK — Zach Randolph had 25 points and 15 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 95-87 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Tony Allen added 19 points and eight boards while providing his usual strong defense. Jerryd Bayless scored 11 points, including two free throws to end a Knicks flurry that had trimmed a 19-point deficit to four in the final half-minute.

Mike Conley finished with nine points and eight assists after missing two games with a bruised left thigh.

Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points, while reserves J.R. Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. each had 16 for the Knicks.
