GAME. BLOUSES.

Marc Gasol may have hit the game-winning floater to tie the Memphis Grizzlies‘ series against the San Antonio Spurs on April 22, but the most important actor in the game was guard Mike Conley, who scored a franchise postseason record 35 points. Conley’s efforts helped Memphis overcome Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard’s postseason best of 43 points.

Leonard chipped away at the Grizzlies’ 10-point lead with 7:38 to go by scoring the final 16 points of regulation, and tied the game at 108 in overtime, before Gasol made the 12-footer with 0.7 seconds remaining to give Memphis the 110-108 win. The Grizzlies also avoided shooting themselves in the foot by committing a franchise postseason record 23 turnovers, which resulted in 31 Spurs points.

The series is now all knotted up at 2-2.
