PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Zach Randolph had 26 points and 18 rebounds off the bench, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Trail Blazers 91-78 last night to spoil Damian Lillard’s return to the Portland lineup. Lillard missed seven games for the Blazers because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Lillard looked rusty at first and the Grizzlies took advantage, leading by as many as 20 early in the fourth quarter.
