|Bulls Blow Big Lead; Lose to Grizzlies
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Zach Randolph scored 31 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied from a big first-half deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 105-96 Thursday night.
After trailing by 17 in the second quarter, the Grizzlies tied it in the third and finally took control with an 8-0 run late in the fourth that gave them a 97-90 lead.
O.J. Mayo scored 10 of his 20 points in the final quarter. Rudy Gay finished with 17 points as the Grizzlies extended their franchise-record road win streak to six and sent Chicago to its third straight loss.
The Bulls wasted solid performances by Luol Deng (23 points) and Derrick Rose (20 points), who have been playing with sore knees. That didn't stop Rose, who banged one knee in each of the previous two games, from driving for a poster-worthy right-handed dunk over Randolph in the third quarter.
