Marc Gasol's OT Game-Winner For Grizzlies Evens Series At 2-2 With Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies will head to Game 5 tied at 2-2, thanks to Memphis' 110-108 OT win Saturday night. In what was very much a game of runs, Mike Conley's play was a major reason the Grizzlies were able to grind out a win. The Grizzlies had a late lead, lost it, but battled back to gut out a win in OT.  

The final few minutes of regulation and OT was pure back-and-forth, with Leonard and Mike Conley providing the entertainment before Marc Gasol hit the game-winner with less than a second left. 

Conley was the driving force for Memphis. He racked up 35 points, seven assists and four rebounds. The Grizzlies weren't close to the same team when Conley was off the court. His play of the night was this impressive and-1 3-pointer. 

The seemingly ageless Vince Carter had 13 points, while JaMychal Green had 14. Zach Rudolph had double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Andrew Harrison had two clutch moments in OT: a blocked shot that led was a five-point swing and two free throws. Marc Gasol had 15 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, seven turnovers and this buzzer beater in the second half.  

It was Leonard and his play late that nearly drove the Spurs to a win. He had 43 points (a playoff-high), along with eight rebounds, six steals, three blocks and three assists. He took over in late in the fourth quarter on both ends of the court, including 11-0 run by himself. He finished with the Spurs' final 16 points in regulation.  

Tony Parker isn't the same player he once was, but vintage Parker showed up Saturday night. Parker had 22 points, five assists and four boards. LaMarcus Aldridge had only 13 points and two rebounds on an off night, but did have this impressive dunk. 

Game 5 of the series is Tuesday in San Antonio. Tip-off time has not been announced yet.
