MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Rudy Gay had 18 points, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley added 17 each, and the Memphis Grizzlies won their fourth straight with a 90-78 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. Darrell Arthur added 11 points for Memphis, while Jerryd Bayless scored 10 points. Gasol added 11 rebounds. Greg Monroe led the Pistons with 17 points and nine rebounds, and Tayshaun Prince finished with 15. Brandon Knight added 10 for Detroit, which lost its third straight and fell to 1-9 on the road. While the Pistons outrebounded the Grizzlies 46-39, Detroit had trouble controlling the ball, committing 22 turnovers to 12 for Memphis. Memphis played without guard Tony Allen, who has a right groin sprain. The Grizzlies built the lead in the second quarter and didn't relinquish the advantage the rest of the way. Memphis carried a 53-45 lead into the break after a poor shooting start. Knight had all 10 of his points for the Pistons, while Gasol led Memphis with 15. While both teams shot about 44 percent for the half, the Pistons committed 13 turnovers compared to five for Memphis. Memphis started 5 of 21 from the field, but eventually got untracked building the lead to double digits. The Pistons had a 12-4 run opening the third to pull back even. But Conley converted a 3-point play, and connected from outside the arc to help Memphis carry a 76-66 lead into the final period. Memphis maintained at least an eight-point advantage through the fourth quarter. NOTES: The Grizzlies have won six straight in the series. ... Randolph entered the game with 12 double-doubles in Memphis' first 13 games. He finished with eight points and five rebounds. ... Both Memphis coach Lionel Hollins and Pistons leader Lawrence Frank declined comment before the game on the NBA's 250,000 fine against San Antonio for sitting four players for Thursday's game against Miami. ... The Pistons 22 turnovers matched a season high for a Memphis opponent.
