MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Conley had 25 points and six assists, then grabbed possession of a jump ball in the final 2 seconds to help the Memphis Grizzlies secure a 91-90 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
Courtney Lee added 17 points for Memphis, which won its season-best fifth straight. Marc Gasol, in his third game back after missing 23 games with a knee injury, finished with 16 points, and Zach Randolph had 12 points and nine rebounds.
DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 22 points and 17 rebounds, while Rudy Gay scored 19 points. Isaiah Thomas finished with 14 points and nine assists. Jason Thompson had 10 points.
A jump ball between Gay and Tayshaun Prince on the Kings' end of the court with 1.9 seconds left ended up in Conley's hands and he dribbled away as the clock ran out.
