Memphis did not have a bad night shooting, connecting on 49 percent of its shots, but that was not enough to overcome the Knicks' sizzling performance. Memphis shot fewer 3-pointers (16) than the Knicks made, and Memphis' 17 turnovers led to 24 New York points.
Notes: The Grizzlies have given up 100 points in last five games. ... Randolph has six straight games with double-doubles. ... Knicks rookie Danilo Gallinari, still bothered by a bad back, had an MRI on Tuesday and is scheduled to see specialists Thursday and next week. The Knicks won't have further information about his status until after those appointments. Coach Mike D'Antoni said before the game there doesn't seem to be any definite timetable for his return. "As soon as he gets well, he'll be back," D'Antoni said. "Where it leads, no one knows. ...I would think at age 20, he'll get over it, whatever it takes. At this point, I don't think anybody knows." ...The Knicks' previous record for 3-pointers was 17 against the Atlanta Hawks in 2005.
