"We believe in our game plan," Gasol said on Friday. "We took away the paint we got stops. We did a good job of rebounding the ball."
Mike Miller also had a hot hand, nailing four of five shots from three point range. Miller finished with 14 points for the Grizzlies who have won eight of their past 11.
Mike Conley and Kosta Koufos both had 12 points, while Zach Randolph finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds in his return to the lineup. Randolph did not play against the Nets Wednesday because of a virus.
Bulls star Joakim Noah had 15 points and eight rebounds while Taj Gibson had 10 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter.
The Bulls went five-of-23 from the field in the first quarter, trailing 15-12 heading into the second.
Chicago bounced back in the second to lead by four, 39-35, at halftime.
Memphis grabbed the lead late in the third quarter and held on for the victory.
Conley's layup early in the fourth capped a 16-2 spurt that made the score 70-63.
Memphis have won four of their last six games as they are battling for the final playoff spot in the West with Dallas.
The Grizzlies are 17-12 on the road and are getting set to host Charlotte and Portland.
"We got another game tomorrow at home and we have to play better and better so we make the playoffs," Gasol said.
The Bulls dropped to 18-11 on the season at home.
