OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Mike Conley's 3-pointer touched off a 9-2 run that ended overtime Wednesday and gave Memphis an 88-81 win over Golden State.

The normally high scoring Warriors made only four free throws for the entire game, had a four-game winning streak snapped and lost at home for the first time this year.

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.

The Grizzlies won all four games on a road trip that concluded with Wednesday's outing.

Zach Randolph led Memphis with 21 points and 12 rebounds while Conley had 19 points. Marc Gasol added 18 and 11 boards.

Golden State got 21 points from Klay Thompson and 18 from David Lee.
