Neither side could produce a point during the final two minutes of the fourth period, leaving the game tied at 75-75. There were seven missed shots and two turnovers during that stretch with the Warriors' Andre Iguodala misfiring on a jumper at the buzzer.
It was a 79-79 game when Conley made his 3-pointer with 1:37 to play in the extra period. Tayshaun Prince then hit a pair of jumpers for Memphis to protect the lead.
