MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Zach Randolph had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies shot 53 percent from the floor in a 108-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. Rudy Gay added 17 points and Marreese Speights contributed 16 off the bench to help Memphis win its third straight after a season-opening loss. Milwaukee, which was looking to start 3-0 for the first time since the 2005-06 season, shot just 38.5 percent from the field. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 19 points, but he was only 6 of 20 from the field. Monta Ellis added 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting. The Grizzlies withstood a third-quarter rally and pulled away in the fourth. Memphis went on a 13-4 run at the start of the third quarter to widen its lead to 69-47, but the Bucks used a 21-6 spurt to cut the lead to seven with about a minute left in the period. During the run, Speights was whistled for a flagrant foul on Jennings, who hit both free throws. Larry Sanders' basket capped the rally. The Grizzlies hit back-to-back 3-pointers to close out the quarter and increase the lead to 13. After missing his first three shots from the field, Jennings, the reigning Eastern Conference player of the week, nailed a 3-pointer to give the Bucks a 15-13 lead. A short time later, Jennings made another 3 to put the Bucks back up 20-19. Memphis turned the ball over six times in the opening period but held a 23-22 lead, scoring 10 points in the paint. The Grizzlies scored the first nine points of the second quarter, opening a 32-22 lead, before Jennings made a running shot, got fouled and made the free throw. Ellis also got off to a rough start, missing his first seven shots from the field. He finished the first half making only three of 12 shots from the field. He and Sanders were whistled for technical fouls in the second quarter. Jennings finished the first half with 13 points but made just four of 12 shots. NOTES: Bucks backup point guard Beno Udrih was inactive after sustaining a deep thigh bruise during a collision with teammate Ersan Ilyasova at practice on Tuesday. ... Rookie forward John Henson made his debut for the Bucks after being inactive for the first two games of the season due to a bone bruise and knee strain. The first-round draft pick from North Carolina entered in the third quarter and finished with two points.
