MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Zach Randolph had 23 points and 11 rebounds, six Memphis players reached double figures and the Grizzlies defeated the Golden State Warriors 108-90 on Saturday night.

Randolph returned to action after leaving Wednesday night's game against New Orleans when his fiance went into labour. Zachary Jr. was born before the end of that game.

Mike Conley added 20 points and six assists, Marc Gasol had 18 points and Memphis won its 10th straight over the Warriors. Mike Miller finished with 15 points, connecting on all but one of his five shots from beyond the 3-point arc.

Stephen Curry, who returned after missing Friday night's loss at San Antonio with a bruised left ankle, led the Warriors with 22 points. Andre Iguodala had 19 points, hitting 8 of 10 shots. David Lee finished with 13 points and nine rebounds before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

Klay Thompson scored 10 of his 12 points in the third quarter for the Warriors.

Memphis dominated the inside game all night with a 54-18 advantage in the paint, outrebounding the Warriors 44-33.

Memphis' intent was evident early. The Grizzlies went to Randolph the first time down the floor and kept feeding him. Randolph had 10 points at the first break.

Meanwhile, Curry was showing little effect of the ankle injury with nine early points.

Randolph registered 14 points by the break to help Memphis to a 54-50 halftime lead. Curry had 17 for the Warriors on 5-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-6 on 3-pointers.

Iguodala had 12, hitting all five of his shots in the half.

The two teams stayed close early in the third period. Memphis connected on eight of its first nine shots in the period, but Thompson kept the Warriors in the game.

Memphis continued to extend the lead, eventually reaching 14 and helping the Grizzlies carry a 90-77 lead into the final frame.

Memphis eventually opened the advantage to 23 points in the fourth quarter, and about that point, Lee had fouled out, and Golden State coach Mark Jackson began emptying the bench.

NOTES: Golden State's last win overall in the series was Nov. 3, 2010. The Warriors have not won in Memphis since April 4, 2008, a span of nine straight losses. ... Saturday's game capped a four-game road trip for the Warriors, who head home 2-2. ... For the first time this season, Memphis held the lead going into the fourth quarter.
