MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Zach Randolph scored 22 points and Marc Gasol added 21 points and 15 rebounds as the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Golden State Warriors 99-89 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal.

Mike Conley and Courtney Lee both finished with 11 points for Memphis, which has won two straight with Conley, their point guard, back in the lineup.

MVP Stephen Curry finished with 23 points for Golden State but was 8 of 21 from the field, including 2 of 10 outside the arc. Klay Thompson had 20 points, and Harrison Barnes added 16.

For a second straight game, the Grizzlies made the Warriors look nothing like the team that was the NBA's best home or away during the regular season. The Warriors missed seven straight 3s during one stretch, several wide-open looks, and the Grizzlies harassed them into a handful of ugly turnovers.

Game 4 is Monday night in Memphis.
