Marc Gasol had 23 points, nine rebounds and eight assists to help put the Grizzlies (6-5) over .500 for the first time this season. They are 5-0 when Randolph leads them in scoring.

Blake Griffin had 23 points and 11 rebounds for the Clippers. Paul had 18 points and 11 assists for his 11 straight double-double, the most by any player from the start of a season since Magic Johnson in 1990-91.
