Zach Randolph had 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 104-94 victory over the Utah Jazz Monday night.

It’s been a struggle for Randolph and the Grizzlies this season. They’ve been without last year’s Defensive Player of the Year, Marc Gasol, for a majority of the season (although he could return within a week) and have lost other key players like Mike Conley and Tayshaun Prince at times this season.

Conley played Monday, but struggled, scoring six points on on two-of-11 shooting. Randolph got his help from the Grizzlies’ bench rather than their starters. Jerryd Bayless had 17 points, Mike Miller finished with 15, Jon Leuer scored 11 points and grabbed five rebounds and Ed Davis finished with eight points. The bench also helped start a late first quarter run that gave the Grizzlies the lead for good.

Trey Burke and Richardson Jefferson each had 18 points to lead the Jazz while Gordon Hayward fell just shy of a triple double with 16 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. Derrick Favors also had 16 points.

The Grizzlies improved to 12-15 while the Jazz fell to 8-23.
