Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Rudy Gay scored 27 points, Zach Randolph added 21 points and eight rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies roared away in the second half for a 104-85 victory over the lifeless Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

O.J. Mayo scored 15 points for the Grizzlies, who bounced back from two losses to wrap up their three-game road trip with a stunningly easy blowout of the two-time defending champions.

The Grizzlies made a 19-4 run in the third quarter to take a 17-point lead, and Los Angeles never threatened to get back in it despite a 21-point second half by Kobe Bryant.

Bryant scored 28 points for the Lakers, who have lost three of their last four home games — all three by at least 16 points — and four of six overall.
