MEMPHIS, April 2 (UPI) -- A 23-point effort off the bench by Javaris Crittenton Wednesday paced Memphis to a 130-114 whipping of New York.

Memphis won for the first time in three games. Rudy Gay added 21 points, Mike Conley had 18 and Mike Miller 15.

The Grizzlies led by 11 after one period and New York did not threaten the rest of the night. Memphis shot 68 percent from the field in the first half on its way to a 74-60 advantage.

New York was led by Zach Randolph with 27 points. It was the Knicks' fourth straight loss.

The setback came on the day New York introduced Donnie Walsh as the new club president, a position previously held by embattled Coach Isiah Thomas.
