Marc Gasol and Mike Conley both scored 21 points, and the Memphis Grizzlies spoiled Golden State's home opener with a 104-94 victory Friday night after Warriors forward Brandon Rush injured his left knee in a scary fall.

Rudy Gay added 18 points and eight rebounds and Zach Randolph had 15 points and 14 rebounds to help Memphis rebound from a loss at the Los Angeles Clippers two nights earlier.

Randolph's foul on Rush in the first quarter unintentionally injured the Warriors forward, putting a damper on Golden State's first game at Oracle Arena this season. Rush held back tears and had to be helped off the court. He was scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday.

The Warriors went down 14 points following the injury, then scored 15 straight to take a 39-38 lead before the Grizzlies ran away with the victory in the second half.
