MEMPHIS, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Mike Conley put in 17 points Monday and the Memphis Grizzlies used a tough defense to shut down Chicago in their 80-71 win over the Bulls.

Rudy Gay (12 points), Wayne Ellington (11) and Zach Rudolph (10, 15 rebounds) also reached double figures for the Grizzlies, who raised their home record to 10-2.

Memphis held the Bulls to a paltry 37.3 percent shooting percentage from the field and outrebounded them by a 51-39 margin.

Carlos Boozer provided 16 points and 13 boards for Chicago, but couldn't prevent the end of the Bulls' two-game winning streak.

Marco Belinelli scored 13 points in the loss.
