(Newser) – Golden State had six players in double figures scoring and defeated Memphis 125-117, despite slowing on defense in the fourth quarter, allowing 40 points. Stephen Jackson was tops for the Warriors with 28 points and 12 rebounds while Baron Davis  added 22 and eight assists, reports the AP. The guys from the Bay Area broke a three-game road losing streak.

The Grizzlies, while extending their home losing streak to four, played without big man Pau Gasol again. Rudy Gay tried to fill the scoring gap in Gasol's absence with 32 points for the second straight game, and Mike Miller added 20. Don Nelson's Warriors looked like the mid-1990s version of the team with 95 points scored through three quarters.
