Memphis, down 109-106, inbounded the ball with 4.6 seconds remaining to Marc Gasol, positioned at the top of the key. Gasol dished left to Conley, who faked right and used a Gasol pick to escape Michael Carter-Williams, who was guarding Conley on the play. Conley, falling forward, launched a three-pointer before the Sixers' Hollis Thompson could close him down.
The victory improved Memphis to 19-4 on the season, second-best in the league behind only the 20-2 Golden State Warriors. The Sixers, who have yet to record a win at home this season, dropped to 2-21 on the year.
Conley led the Grizzlies with a season-high 36 points and nine assists. He is averaging 17 points and 6.1 assists per game this season.
