MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Zach Randolph had 15 points and 17 rebounds, Marc Gasol added 12 points and 12 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Milwaukee Bucks 90-80 on Wednesday night. Rudy Gay added 13 points for Memphis, which won its third straight. Mike Conley had 11 points and six assists, while Marreese Speights scored 10 points. Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 26 points, even though he missed his first eight shots. Marquis Daniels was the only other Bucks player in double figures with 12 points on 5 of 8 from the field. Monta Ellis, the Bucks leading scorer at 19 points a game, missed his first 13 shots, and didn't score a field goal until 2:30 was left in the game. He ended the night with four points. The 80 points was a season low for Milwaukee. Memphis benefited from an intense defense in the second half, causing 12 Bucks turnovers after halftime leading to 18 points. Memphis committed 10 of its 16 turnovers in the first half. Both teams started the game shooting poorly as Grizzlies hit just a third of their shots, while the Bucks were 6 of 26, including Ellis and Jennings, the Bucks two top scorers, missing all 12 of their combined shots in the first quarter. Memphis committed six turnovers in the first. Jennings would miss eight shots before connecting, while Ellis missed all 10 of his in the half. Memphis led 43-34 at halftime by shooting 40 percent, despite Gay and Tony Allen hitting 2 of 7 each and Conley missing his three shots. Neither team had a scorer in double figures at intermission. Memphis took the first double-digit lead of the game on its initial possession of the second half, and eventually extended it to 60-45 as the Grizzlies turned up the defensive pressure. The Bucks, meanwhile, looked like a team struggling to catch their breath on the second night of a back-to-back. Memphis would eventually build the lead to 16 in the third and finished the quarter with a 66-51 advantage. Memphis never let the lead fall below double digits in the fourth. NOTES: Memphis defeated Milwaukee 108-90 on Nov. 7. ... Memphis had 20 rebounds in the first quarter, the most for a period this season. They ended the night outrebounding Milwaukee 56-44. ... Conley needs one assist to tie Jason Williams for the most assists in Grizzlies franchise history. Williams had 2,069. ... The Bucks, who defeated the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, are now 2-3 in second night of a back-to-back. ... The previous low point total for the Bucks this season was 81 at New Orleans on Dec. 3.
