Warriors Vs. Grizzlies: Last Second Tip-In Secures 104-103 Memphis Win

The Golden State Warriors entered the Fedex Forum looking for an elusive road victory Saturday night, while the Memphis Grizzlies were looking to keep their train rolling with another victory. And thanks to a late game tip-in, the Griz held on to secure the hard-fought 104-103 victory.

Tony Allen put back a Rudy Gay miss with 5.6 seconds to ensure their fourth straight victory, though the Warriors had one last chance. David Lee was unfortunately called for an offensive foul with about a second left, just one of their 13 turnovers on the night.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors (11-17) with season high tying 36 points, including 6-9 from downtown. Monta Ellis had an excellent game as well, dropping 33 points, though it would ultimately prove not enough.

Memphis had themselves a very well-rounded night offensively as Rudy Gay paced the Grizzlies (18-14) with 19 points, while O.J. Mayo had 18. Marc Gasol had a tidy double-double with 17 points and 13 rebounds, Marreese Speights added 16 points, while Mike Conley finished with 15 points and six assists.
