Zach Randolph Rounding Into Dominant Form

Dec 5, 2012 10:53 AM

After an injury-riddled season in 2011-12, Zach Randolph has returned to the top form that propelled the Memphis Grizzlies to the Western Conference semifinals two years ago.

Randolph is averaging almost 18 points and 13.3 rebounds and is feeling much healthier this season. He pounded the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night to the tune of 38 points and 22 rebounds, becoming the second player over the past decade to post those numbers.

"Reminded me of two years ago Zach," Marc Gasol said. "He was aggressive. He wasn't settling. He attacked the rim every time."

Many believed Randolph was one of the best power forwards in the NBA a couple seasons ago, and he's slowly returning to that level.

"It felt good," Randolph said. "... I felt like my old self."
