San Antonio Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzlies for the seventh straight time Tuesday night, escaping the FedExForum with a 110-108 overtime victory that could have been measured in inches.
While the Spurs have been beating the Grizz with regularity, this latest confrontation was in doubt right up to the time Mike Conley's three-point attempt from 29 feet bounced off the front of the rim as time expired.
Conley played big in a game in which Memphis erased a 16-point deficit, including a 10-point hole entering the fourth quarter. Conley led the Grizzlies with 30 points, 11 coming down the stretch in the final frame. His last-play drive to the basket yielded a game-tying bucket that sent the game into overtime.
