PHOENIX (AP) - Mike Conley had 24 points and 11 assists, and the undefeated Memphis Grizzlies used a strong defensive effort in the third quarter to beat the Phoenix Suns 102-91 Wednesday night.
The Grizzlies, who won all four meetings between the teams last season, forced 10 turnovers in the third and turned an 11-point deficit in the second period into a five-point lead going into the fourth. Conley and fellow guard Courtney Lee, both coming off injuries, scored 17 of Memphis' 30 third-quarter points.
Conley injured his ankle in the previous game but got the start. Lee missed the past two games with a concussion and also started, scoring 22 points with 4-of-5 shooting on 3-pointers.
Memphis (5-0) is off to the best start in franchise history.
