OAKLAND — Zach Randolph had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Rudy Gay scored 18 points and the Memphis Grizzlies completed a 3-0 road trip with a 94-87 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.

Stephen Curry scored 24 points and Klay Thompson had 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as the Warriors (22-12) lost back-to-back games for only the second time this season.

Mike Conley added 16 points and Marc Gasol finished with 12 points and nine rebounds to help Memphis make its quick West Coast swing more memorable. The Grizzlies (23-10) also won at Phoenix on Sunday and at Sacramento on Monday.

After Golden State fell behind by five late in the fourth quarter, Curry made a pull-up 3-pointer and Thompson drew a fast-break foul to set up the tying free throws. Gasol answered with a reverse layup under heavy pressure, pumping his fist in celebration to give the Grizzlies the lead again.

In the end, defense sealed the game for Memphis.

Mike Conley stole David Lee’s pass before getting fouled and making both free throws. On the next possession, Jerryd Bayless blocked Jarrett Jack’s shot and that led to a layup for Conley that gave the Grizzlies an 88-82 lead with 1:51 remaining.

The Warriors were coming off their most lopsided loss of the season, a 115-89 setback at the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. They fell to 9-2 after a loss this season.
