They won their last two home games against Detroit and Charlotte, but lost five of seven. Memphis was led by Zach Randolph, who scored 18 points and grabbed 18 rebounds against Denver as the Grizzlies struggled to shoot just 35.3 percent.

He's also averaging 20.5 points and 17 rebounds in two games this year against an underachieving Utah frontcourt. Memphis is battling Denver and the Clippers for the third seed. Randolph and Marc Gasol will be too much for Utah's frontcourt.
