Lillard Has 33 to Lead Blazers Past Grizzlies 112-106
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Damian Lillard scored 33 points, C.J. McCollum had six of his 21 points in overtime as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 112-106 on Monday night.
McCollum scored the first three baskets of the overtime to create a buffer for the Trail Blazers.
Mike Conley led Memphis with 27 points, while Zach Randolph added 26 points as Memphis lost its second straight overtime game.
The teams were tied at 102 at the end of regulation after Allen Crabbe was credited with a tip-in for Portland as the horn sounded — a shot actually tipped in by Memphis' Jeff Green.
The play was reviewed not only regarding whether the tip-in was in time, but whether there was basket interference. Officials ruled the basket good, sending the game to the extra period.
Marc Gasol scored 11 points before leaving late in the first quarter with a right foot injury. He did not return.
