NEW YORK (AP) — Zach Randolph had 16 points and 14 rebounds, Marc Gasol scored 14 points and the Memphis Grizzlies won their seventh straight game, 76-72 over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.

Tony Allen chipped in 12 points, including two free throws with 19.5 seconds left to give Memphis a 74-72 lead. Allen was originally credited with a basket after Brooklyn’s MarShon Brooks was called for goaltending. After the referees looked over replays they switched their call and gave Allen two shots after he was grabbed by Nets forward Mirza Teletovic on the field goal attempt.

Deron Williams, who led Brooklyn with 24 points, then turned the ball over as he attempted to pass it to Teletovic. Williams fouled Mike Conley, who sealed it with a pair of free throws.

Tayshaun Prince had 11 points to help the Grizzlies improve to 8-0 this season when holding opponents below 80 points.

C.J. Watson had 11 points and Andray Blatche added 10 for the Nets, who were without Joe Johnson because of a sore left heel.
