The Memphis Grizzlies got by without Zach Randolph during the first four games of their latest surge, but they were certainly happy to see him back in the lineup as it continued.
His presence, though, hasn't been enough to get them past the Los Angeles Clippers in either of this season's meetings.
Memphis seeks its 14th victory in 15 tries Wednesday night as it visits Los Angeles, which is coming off its best offensive performance of the season.
Randolph sprained his ankle in a loss at Miami on March 1 and missed the next four games - all Memphis victories. He returned Tuesday and scored 19 points while adding 10 rebounds in 28 minutes of a 102-97 win at Portland.
He hit 8 of 13 from the field and has a double-double in six of his last seven games for the Grizzlies (43-19), who have won six of seven road games during their current hot stretch.
"I felt pretty good out there,'' Randolph said. "A little sore, but overall I felt all right.''

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. Theres nothing subtle about the Memphis Grizzlies. They are big, physical and unafraid to use their muscle under the basket a fact the Clippers know too well.
