Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each recorded double-doubles and the Memphis Grizzlies earned their sixth straight win with an 88-82 decision over the short-handed Orlando Magic.

Gasol finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Randolph chipped in 16 and 14 for Memphis, which won the battle in the paint, 40-32 and had 12 more fastbreak points.

The Magic will almost surely miss the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons, forcing them to build for the future at Thursday's trade deadline by dealing sharpshooter J.J. Redick to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The three players Orlando received in the six-player deal -- Beno Udrih, Doron Lamb and Tobias Harris -- as well as Hakim Warrick, who was acquired from the Bobcats, were not available Friday, leaving the Magic with seven healthy bodies.

Arron Afflalo and Maurice Harkless totaled 20 and 19 points, respectively, to lead the Magic, who are mired in a 1-16 slump and have lost 10 straight on the road.
