MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Grizzlies believe they are much better than they showed in a 22-point loss in their opener.

Strong defensive intensity, better offensive rebounding and a 39-point fourth quarter Friday night helped Memphis prove it with its first victory of the season, 115-107 over the Toronto Raptors.

Zach Randolph scored 30 points to lead six Grizzlies in double figures. Marc Gasol added 19 points for Memphis, which lost 96-74 to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. O.J. Mayo had 18 points, and Rudy Gay finished with 17 points and nine rebounds.

“We definitely were all tuned-in after that home opener,” Mayo said. “We didn’t play nearly as well as we can on opening night. We had a good practice, then came in here and everyone was really focused, had a must-win attitude, and we showed it.”

Chris Bosh led the Raptors with 37 points and 12 rebounds. Jose Calderon scored 15 points and Hedo Turkoglu finished with 14. Andrea Bargnani had 12 points, all in the third quarter.
