Mike Conley scored 20 points and the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 91-89 on Friday night to remain unbeaten. Oklahoma City had a chance to take the lead with 5.9 seconds remaining, but the Thunder were called for a five-second violation. Oklahoma City then fouled Courtney Lee, who made 1 of 2 free throws. That gave the Thunder the ball, down two, with 2.4 seconds to go. Serge Ibaka missed a 3-pointer from beyond the top of the key at the buzzer.

Lee scored 17 points and Zach Randolph added 16 for the Grizzlies (6-0).

Reggie Jackson had 22 points for the Thunder (1-5), who again played without injured stars Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and several other key players.
