MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Grizzlies continued their high-scoring ways with a win over the Nuggets in Denver, 103-96.

A huge 32-point fourth quarter elevated the Grizz to the win.

Zach Randolph led the way for Memphis with a game-high 22 points.

Matt Barnes chipped in 16 for Memphis, Mario Chalmers added 15 and P.J. Hairston and Lance Stephenson followed suit with 14 each.

The Grizzlies were again without Tony Allen, who is day-to-day with a knee injury, and Brandan Wright, who is now out indefinitely with a sprained MCL.

The Nuggets were led by Kenneth Faried, who scored 16 points with 11 rebounds.

Memphis improved to 35-24 on the season. They are currently locked into the fifth spot in the Western Conference, with several games separating them both from the fourth seed and the sixth seed.

The Grizzlies will play again when they return to Memphis for a game with the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.
