Grizzlies 108, Warriors 90

THE FACT: The Memphis Grizzlies beat Golden State for the 10th consecutive time overall Saturday night, the second-longest winning streak over a single opponent in franchise history, behind an active 11-game winning streak against Minnesota. THE LEAD: For the first time this season, the Grizzlies looked like the team that reached the Western Conference finals last season. They returned to playing hard-nosed defense and pounding the ball in the paint. Those two things resulted in a 108-90 win over Golden State, the first time the Grizzlies have scored 100 points in regulation this season. Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with game highs of 23 points and 11 rebounds. Mike Conley added 20 points and six assists. The Warriors were led by Stephen Curry, who returned from an ankle injury to score 22 points with five assists. QUOTABLE: "That was the Grizzlies, for the most part. We held our hats on the defensive end. ... We just got back to powering the ball inside and trying to play the pass
