VIDEO: Mike Conley beats the Spurs at the buzzer
Mike Conley had some moments against the Spurs on Monday.
First, he tied the game at 90-90 with 30 seconds left on a deep 3-pointer. And then with 6.2 seconds left and the score still tied, he went out and just won the thing too.
Conley drove hard to the bucket and flipped a high layup off the backboard that dropped through with 0.6 seconds left. The Spurs couldn't find an equalizer and the Grizzlies found a 92-90 win.
A good win for the Grizzlies, and a second straight loss for the Spurs, which narrows their lead over the Thunder to just one game with a showdown coming Thursday. The Spurs rested Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard against Memphis, and were also down Manu Ginobili who is out with a hamstring strain.
The Spurs have dropped two straight, both coming in the closing seconds. Chris Bosh hit a 3-pointer at the death on Sunday, and now Conley got them late tonight.
The win ties the Grizzlies at 50-24 with the Denver Nuggets for the third-best record in the West.
