MEMPHIS, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Zach Randolph scored 23 points, including five clutch free throws in the final minute, to give the Memphis Grizzlies a 92-86 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

O.J. Mayo had 19 points and Marc Gasol had 14 in the Grizzlies' eighth consecutive home victory.

Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 23 points and eight rebounds. Roger Mason scored 17, but Tony Parker could come up with only four points on eight shots.
