Grizzlies hold off Thunder 91-89, move to 6-0

 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Mike Conley scored 20 points and the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 91-89 on Friday night to remain unbeaten.

Oklahoma City had a chance to take the lead with 5.9 seconds remaining, but the Thunder were called for a five-second violation. Oklahoma City then fouled Courtney Lee, who made one of two free throws. That gave the Thunder the ball, down two, with 2.4 seconds to go. Serge Ibaka missed a 3-pointer from beyond the top of the key at the buzzer.

Lee scored 17 points and Zach Randolph added 16 for the Grizzlies (6-0).

Reggie Jackson had 22 points for the Thunder (1-5), who again played without injured stars Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and several other key players.
