CHICAGO - Marc Gasol scored 19 points, Zach Randolph had 13 points and 19 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Chicago Bulls 85-82 in overtime on Saturday night.

Memphis scored the first six points of the extra period, Gasol's putback making it 82-76. The Bulls cut it to 83-80 on Jimmy Butler's layup and had a chance to tie, but Nate Robinson missed a three-pointer with 25 seconds left.

Robinson made a layup with 6.6 seconds left, but former Arizona Wildcat Jerryd Bayless scored with 4.8 seconds remaining to make it 85-82. Carlos Boozer missed a three as time expired.

Chicago, playing its third consecutive overtime game in four days, didn't have enough in overtime. The Bulls played without forward Luol Deng and had to fight back from a 17-point, third-quarter deficit.
