SALT LAKE CITY — Zach Randolph had 22 points and 13 rebounds, and his two free throws with 11 seconds clinched the Memphis Grizzlies' 91-87 come-from-behind win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
Mike Conley scored 19 points and Marc Gasol added 18 for the Grizzlies, who won for the fifth time in six games and are a season-best 15 games over .500.
Derrick Favors had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Gordon Hayward scored 18 points and Richard Jefferson added 15 for the Jazz, who are 1-5 in their last six home games.
Though Memphis is the team in a tight playoff race, the Jazz exerted extra effort for steals and dove for loose balls and led for most the contest while playing their starters extended minutes.
The Grizzlies made the key plays down the stretch and made their final 13 free throws to secure the victory.
