NEW YORK (AP) Mike Conley scored 19 of Memphis' 20 points in the second overtime period, rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a career-high 36 points and the Grizzlies beat the Brooklyn Nets 131-125 Friday.
Conley kept Memphis' hopes alive in regulation when he blocked Spencer Dinwiddie's potential game-winning basket and then scored on a floater to tie it 117-all with nine seconds left in the first overtime period.
The Grizzlies point guard then practically beat the Nets on his own in the second overtime period, shooting 3-for-3 from the field and making all seven of his free throws to finish with 37 points and 10 rebounds.
Conley had let the Nets back into the game with an errant pass with 2:59 left.
D'Angelo Russell, who finished 26 points, made a reverse layup to put the Nets ahead 125-124.
But Conley went back to work, hitting a jumper and making a pair of free throws that extended Memphis' lead to 128-125 with 19.9 seconds left. The Grizzlies never trailed again.
Marc Gasol had 15 points and 15 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who snapped a three-game losing streak.
DeMarre Carroll had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Nets, whose losing streak hit five games. >> Read More
