Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - Mike Conley was one assist shy of a
triple-double and hit a go-ahead 3-pointer down the stretch to lead the
Memphis Grizzlies over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 99-93, in Game 2 of their
Western Conference semifinal series.
Conley finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and provided the
27th lead change with a clutch 3-pointer with 1:58 remaining. The basket was
part of the Grizzlies' 10-3 run to end the game and helped even the series at
a game apiece heading back to Memphis.
Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph powered a one-sided advantage in the post with 24
and 15 points, respectively, as Memphis scored 20 more points in the paint and
held a 23-6 edge in second-chance points.
Kevin Durant nearly had a triple-double as well, though in a losing cause,
totaling 36 points, 11 boards and nine helpers. Derek Fisher followed with 19
points, while key reserve Kevin Martin was limited to six on 2-of-11 shooting
after scoring 25 points in each of the last two games.
The tight series takes a few days off before Game 3 tips off Saturday night.
