OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Mike Conley made back-to-back 3-pointers during a 9-point run in the third period Friday that vaulted Memphis to a 104-94 win over Golden State.

The Grizzlies turned a three-point cushion into a 12-point lead with that surge and held on for a decision that left both teams having split their first two games of the season.


Five Memphis players scored in double figures and the Grizzlies overcame a 26-point effort by Stephen Curry.

Both Conley and Marc Gasol had 21 points for Memphis, Rudy Gay delivered 18, Zach Randolph had 15 and Wayne Ellington scored 10. Randolph added 14 rebounds.

Memphis went to the foul line 17 more times than did Golden State and made 16 more than the Warriors.

Curry hit 10-of-20 shots from the field, had six rebounds and handed out seven assists. Carl Landry added 20 points for the Warriors.
