NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Mike Conley hit a driving layup against Austin Rivers with 1.5 seconds remaining to complete the Memphis Grizzlies' comeback for a 90-88 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.

Conley's basket closed out a 9-0 Grizzlies run to end the game. Memphis trailed 88-81 with 3:22 remaining, but the undermanned Pelicans, playing without guards Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon, were held scoreless from that point.

Conley scored 16 points to lead the Grizzlies, who won their fourth straight game. Marc Gasol added 15 points, and Zach Randolph and Tony Allen 13 each for Memphis.

Anthony Davis scored 29 points, including 22 in the first half, for the Pelicans, who had won their past three games. Rivers added 14, Brian Roberts 12 and Anthony Morrow 10.

Davis, who turned 21 Tuesday, also had nine rebounds and blocked four shots.
