NBA: Memphis 85, Charlotte 80

April 20, 2012 at 10:27 PM   |   Comments

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 20 (UPI) -- Mike Conley's two free throws with 11 seconds left finished off a strong fourth quarter Friday that rallied the Memphis Grizzlies past Charlotte 85-80.

The Bobcats made a bid for what would have been their eighth win of the season, but they were outscored 28-15 in the final period. Charlotte has lost a franchise-record 19 games in a row.

Conley's free throws made it a two-possession game and wrapped up a 20-point performance. Zach Randolph added 14 points for the Grizzlies, winners of three in a row.

Memphis climbed to within one game of the Los Angeles Clippers for fourth place in the Western Conference and the home-court advantage that goes with it in the opening round of the playoffs.

Gerald Henderson produced a career best with 32 points for Charlotte.
