SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Zach Randolph scored 25 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Utah Jazz 99-86 on Saturday night to halt a 3-game losing streak.

Al Jefferson led Utah with 21 points. Paul Millsap added 12 and Gordon Hayward 11 for the Jazz (13-12), who have lost two straight.

Memphis held a 48-35 advantage on the boards, including an 18-7 edge on the offensive end.

Marc Gasol added 16 points for Memphis (15-6), including nine in the decisive third.
