Final Score: Grizzlies cruise to victory over the Bucks, 108-90

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

The Grizzlies looked strong in their 108-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

It really wasn't ever close, as the Grizzlies led most of the way, pulling out to a 22-point lead in the 3rd and never letting the Bucks claw back.

Behind a strong 18 and 13 performance from Zach Randolph, who notched his 4th double-double of the season, the Grizzlies moved to 3-1 on the year, winning their second road game in a 108-90 victory over the Bucks.

Marreese Speights dropped 18 points off the bench in 22 minutes on 9-of-13 shooting, and Mike Conley doubled-up with 13 points and 12 assists. The Grizzlies as a team shot 53 percent from the floor, but just 6-of-16 from the 3-point line, with the starters missing all 7 of their attempts.

Quincy Pondexter helped stretch the floor, hitting 3-of-4 threes, while Jerryd Bayless hit two of his three 3-point attempts.

Rudy Gay had a terrible shooting night, going 7-of-20 from the floor, once again taking contested jumpers and not playing into his strength. This is going to be a bigger issue on nights when the rest of the team isn't shooting in the near 70s from the field. Gay needs to once again step back, take a breather and get better looks.

The Grizzlies played great defense, holding the Bucks to 38 percent shooting from the floor, including an awful 11-of-38 showing from Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings. Again, they collapsed the paint and forced the Bucks' guards to take highly contested runners and/or kick it for a long jumper, to which the Bucks were ineffective.

Here's the numbers, by quarter:
