Gasol, Grizzlies withstand scare from Wolves in 101-97 win

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) When Kevin Garnett was thrown out of the game, Marc Gasol went to work and Flip Saunders went looking for a rulebook.

Gasol had 27 points and 11 rebounds, and Mike Conley hit a big 3-pointer with 30 seconds left to lift the Memphis Grizzlies to a much-needed 101-97 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

Gasol scored nine straight points in the final 4 minutes, and Conley's 3 from the wing broke a 95-all tie. Conley finished with 17 points and hit two free throws with 11 seconds left for Memphis, which had been sluggish over the previous five games.
