Even without Marc Gasol and Tayshaun Prince in the Grizzlies lineup, Jazz coach Ty Corbin knew what awaited his team tonight at FedExForum. "It’s going to be a hard-fought ball game," Corbin said before the game. "They’re going to be physical. They still have that in them." They showed it Monday as they beat up on the Jazz, 104-94. Memphis forward Zac Randolph scored a game-high 22 points. But it was the Grizzlies bench that made the difference. Memphis’ reserves outscored Utah’s 50-18 as the Jazz fell to 8-23 on the year. Backup guard Jerryd Bayless hit four 3-pointers en route to 17 points, and Mike Miller hit all three of his triples as he racked up 15 points.
