Kawhi Leonard scored 43 on 14 of 30 shooting, while Tony Parker had 22 points. Pau Gasol had the most boards for Spurs with 11 rebounds.
Marc Gasol lifted Memphis to a 110-108 overtime win over the San Antonio Spurs with a clutch jump shot at the buzzer that allowed the Grizzlies to level their playoff series at 2-2.
Then the Grizzlies matched his intensity on the court.
Mike Conley set a franchise postseason record with 35 points, and Gasol finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
Dedmon not only has started all three games of this first-round playoff series, he also started 37 of the 76 games he played.
"I mean the Spurs were punking us".
Fizdale's answer seemed to show what he hopes happens more than what might happen in reality. However, he only played a total of two minutes in the fourth quarter and overtime. He also knows the Grizzlies still face an uphill battle, with two of the final three games in the series (if it goes seven games) in San Antonio.

He said that it's "unacceptable" that Zach Randolph had zero free-throw attempts compared to Leonard's 19 trips to the charity stripe. "It was about tonight and showing that we have heart and showing that we have enough in the tank to show that we can win and give ourselves confidence and allow us to believe that we can make this a series".
"I've always said we play better with our backs against the wall", coach Dwane Casey said. What turned into an epic duel between Mike Conley and Kawhi Leonard was eventually decided by a last-second game-winner in the extra frame from Marc Gasol. The Spurs should have reason to worry because the Grizzlies are not going to be rooked.
The Spurs shot 47.2 percent from the floor and 41.7 percent (10-for-24) from 3-point range. "For our young guys, those first few games they had the jitters and maybe coming home, getting their feet wet here, playing well and now going back out on the road, they will feel a little bit more comfortable". The Blazers finished eighth after a late-season surge that saw them go 17-6 after March 1.
A tie-breaking Game 5 will take place on Tuesday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. That meant Randolph and James Ennis both starting. Randolph said that has crossed his mind, especially now with the regular season over and the postseason just two losses away right now.
The Grizzlies took very good care of the ball, with only two turnovers through three quarters. But the Grizzlies were able to hold on to their possessions by only turning the ball over five times.
Gasol finished with 16 points, 12 rebounds and four assists; he also committed seven turnovers.
