With the Grizzlies trailing 101-99, point guard Mike Conley got open for a potential game-winning three-pointer but missed the shot. Green was there for the rebound and quickly threw up a leaner from just inside the free throw line, making the basket and drawing a foul on the Suns' Eric Bledsoe in the process. He then hit the free throw to put the Grizzlies ahead.
Green finished with 12 points and seven rebounds, while Gasol had 15 points, eight assists, six rebounds and three blocks. Mike Conley led Memphis with 23 points. Suns point guard Isaiah Thomas scored a game 24 points off the bench.
