Grizzlies vs. Warriors final score: Memphis withstands late run, wins 94-87

USA TODAY Sports

Once teammates, Zach Randolph and David Lee squared off against one another in an epic battle on Wednesday night.

All five Memphis Grizzlies starters scored in double figures, and the team dominated the interior as they hung on to beat the Golden State Warriors, 94-87, on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena.

Stephen Curry showcased some late-game heroics, but it wasn't enough to lift his team to victory as Memphis withstood Golden State's late run. He had a team-high 24 points for the Warriors and added four assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies' scoring attack, with 19 points and chipped in 12 rebounds to go along with two steals. Rudy Gay added 18 points, six assists and five rebounds.

Memphis shot just 11.8 percent from the three-point line, but made up for it with points in the paint, totaling 60 to the Warriors' 34.

David Lee and Randolph were once teammates with the New York Knicks, and both faced one another with resurgent teams in much better situations than when they last took the floor together. Both the Warriors and the Grizzlies are well-situated to make the 2012-13 postseason.

The Grizzlies are dealing with a bit of organizational uncertainty, but managed to put that aside as Gay and Rudolph continue to have their names floated in trade rumors in lieu of the team's new ownership. Memphis moved to 23-10 with the win, while the Warriors fell to 22-12.
