SACRAMENTO, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Marc Gasol's all-around game of 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds Sunday helped Memphis overcome a near-fold and post a 97-86 win over Sacramento.

The Grizzlies had led by as many as 20 points, but the Kings surged in the second half, pulling to within three points on Travis Outlaw's 3-pointer with 7:18 left in the game.

But Mike Conley then ignited a 7-0 Memphis run with two baskets and Zach Randolph scored on consecutive possessions down the stretch to ice the victory.

Randolph finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Conley provided 19 points with nine assists for the Grizzlies, who reached the .500 mark for the first time this season (5-5).

Outlaw ended with 18 points off the bench but it wasn't enough for the Kings, who fell to 1-7.
