Anderson was 7 of 13 from the field, all of his attempts coming from outside the arc. He capped a late New Orleans surge that put the game out of reach.

Fellow reserve Jason Smith was 5 of 7 from the field for 16 points, and Anthony Davis was the only New Orleans starter to finish in double figures with 10 points. The Hornets had dropped consecutive games.

Zach Randolph led Memphis with 20 points and 13 rebounds for his league-leading 28th double-double. Marc Gasol had 14 points and 11 boards, and Jerryd Bayless also scored 14. Rudy Gay had 10 points, but was 3 for 17 from the field, including a 1-for-7 performance from long range.

New Orleans put the game away by outscoring Memphis 27-15 in the fourth quarter.

The Grizzlies, who had won two in a row, played most of the game without starting point guard Mike Conley, who turned his ankle in the first quarter and did not return.

Neither team shot particularly well. The Hornets finished at 43 percent, dragged down by Greivis Vasquez's 2-for-16 off night. The starting point guard did manage to contribute 11 assists.

Gasol was 5 for 14 for Memphis, which shot 36 percent.

The game was close until New Orleans pulled away in the final 5 minutes. There were 17 lead changes and 16 ties.

Through three quarters, both teams were shooting just above 40 percent, but Memphis held a 68-64 lead. Davis had eight points in the third.
