Memphis point guard Mike Conley had an opportunity to win the game, but his 29-foot 3-point attempt fell short at the buzzer. "I told the guys at the (beginning of) overtime that it was all a mental contest," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It would be easy to go down after losing the lead and playing as sloppily as we did at the end of the game. It would be easy to hang your head.

Conley hit a runner at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime 3 seconds after Ginobili had scored on a layup. "I was proud of the effort at the end," said Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger. "We kept coming. We started to attack them the way we needed to attack them, which was in transition and with quick attacks. I thought we played pretty hard. We were just too slow in the first half." With the Grizzlies trailing by 10, Conley said he decided to play more aggressively entering the fourth quarter to relieve the pressure on teammate Zach Randolph, whom the Spurs were double-teaming in the low post. Conley scored 12 points in the quarter, including 9 in the final 1:35 when the Grizzlies rallied from a 96-85.deficit. He added five more points in overtime.
