MEMPHIS, TN - Marc Gasol scored 16 points, Zach Randolph had 15 and Tayshaun Prince added 14 as the Memphis Grizzlies extended their home winning streak to a franchise record 16 straight Monday night with a 93-81 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Grizzlies, off to a franchise-best 4-0 start, got three double-doubles. Randolph had 11 rebounds to give him a double-double in each of the team's four games. Gasol (11 rebounds) and Tony Allen (12 points, 11 rebounds) also finished with double-doubles.

Tyreke Evans led the Pelicans (1-2) with 21 points. New Orleans shot only 34 percent from the field.

The Grizzlies pulled away in the fourth quarter behind reserve Vince Carter and Prince. Carter's turnaround jumper gave the Grizzlies a 71-66 lead midway through the quarter and two minutes later Prince scored back-to-back baskets, the second a fast break slam off a feed from Beno Udrih for a 76-68 lead. In the closing minute two Allen free throws gave the Grizzlies their biggest lead at 93-79.
