PHOENIX » Zach Randolph just loves playing the Phoenix Suns.

Randolph scored a season-high 34 points, Rudy Gay had 22 and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied to beat Phoenix 104-98 in overtime last night.

Randolph made 15 of 19 shots from the field and also had 17 rebounds. The 6-foot-9 burly forward is averaging 23 points and 17 rebounds in three games against Phoenix this year, and 22.3 points and 14.4 boards in his last seven games against the Suns overall.

"Zach is a tough matchup, not only for us," Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said. "He's good at angles and he has a soft touch. It's tough to defend him."

Mike Conley had 11 points and a career-high 14 assists for the Grizzlies, who picked up their first road win since Nov. 6 at Sacramento. They had dropped their previous six away from home.

Gay sent the game to overtime with a 3-pointer just before the regulation buzzer that tied it at 92. Gay's 22-footer from the left corner was his only 3-point attempt of the game.

"It was well executed," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. "We got the guy we wanted and he hit the shot."

Randolph had the key basket in OT, making a turnaround bank shot to give Memphis a 98-96 lead with 2:30 left. Goran Dragic missed a 3-pointer on the other end and Gay hit two free throws to extend the lead to four.

After Steve Nash made a driving layup, Randolph connected on a jumper with 8.7 seconds left and O.J. Mayo hit two free throws to finish the scoring.
