NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Conley scored 20 points, Jeff Green had 12 of his 18 in the third quarter, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Brooklyn Nets 109-90 on Wednesday night in their first game since losing Marc Gasol to a broken right foot.

The Grizzlies unleashed a strong perimeter attack in the absence of their franchise center, making seven 3-pointers in a 39-point third quarter that blew open the game.

Zach Randolph finished with 15 points for the Grizzlies, who were coming off consecutive losses, both in overtime. Gasol was hurt in the first quarter against Portland on Monday and Memphis learned the extent of his injury Tuesday.

The Nets' Joe Johnson was scoreless, ending the NBA's longest active streak with at least one field goal.
