MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Grizzlies know they have to stop blowing fourth-quarter leads. Consecutive overtime wins makes the needed corrections much easier for Memphis.
Mike Conley scored five of his 20 points in overtime, and the Grizzlies beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-95 Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round Western Conference series.
"Obviously, we're happy with the win but disappointed at the way we handled that last quarter," Conley said. "We knew they were going to make runs. We knew they'd keep fighting because that's what they do, and it's the playoffs. They're going to make runs. They're going to make plays. They have two of the best players in the league."
