Game Story

The Grizzlies dominated the first half despite a 15-point first quarter by Blake Griffin. Conley hit four threes to help build a 15-point halftime lead.

Things got weird in the third quarter, when a flagrant foul by Andrew Harrison ignited temperatures on both sides. A few minutes later, Harrison chased down a Chris Paul breakaway, leading to a bizarre sequence:

The Clippers pulled within eight after this scramble, but a pair of threes from Gasol made it a 14-point game again.

With three minutes to go, the lead had evaporated thanks to seven second-half threes from J. J. Reddick. Conley fought back, finishing with seven threes himself, and feeding the game-winning assist to Gasol in the corner COMPLETE WITH CONOR MCGREGOR SLINKY WALK:
