NEW ORLEANS — Marc Gasol had 28 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer with seven seconds left in regulation, to go with 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and the Memphis Grizzlies outlasted the New Orleans Pelicans 110-108 in double overtime on Monday night.
Gasol blocked two shots, including one by Terrence Jones that could have given the Pelicans the lead in the final seconds of the first overtime. And the Spaniard's 17-foot jumper with 1:16 left in the second overtime wound up being the winning basket.
Troy Daniels hit seven 3s and finished with 29 points for Memphis, while Andrew Harrison scored 12 points, including a game-tying 3 with 15 seconds left in the first overtime.
Anthony Davis had 28 points and 17 rebounds for New Orleans. Langtson Galloway hit six 3s and scored a season-high 26 points, but missed a corner 3 that could have won it as second extra period ended.
Tony Allen had 19 points, 14 rebounds and three steals for the Grizzlies, who've won three straight despite having a handful of regulars injured. JaMychal Green grabbed 15 rebounds to go with two blocks and two steals, while Troy Williams scored 11 points.
Jones had 10 points for the Pelicans, who've lost three straight and had just nine players in uniform while playing on the second of back-to-back nights. New Orleans lost in Oklahoma City on Sunday night, when Davis played 43 minutes. The star forward had played more than 90 minutes in about 26 hours by the time his off-balance 15-footer clanged off the rim with 55 seconds left in the second OT with his team trailing by a basket.
New Orleans managed to stop Memphis on its next possession and wound up with three shots to win or tie. Galloway missed a 3, but Solomon Hill rebounded for the Pelicans with 22 seconds left. New Orleans then ran a play for Davis, who missed amid a crowd of defenders inside. But Davis tied up Gasol on the rebound and then won a jump ball, leading to Galloway's final 3-point attempt at the horn.
Memphis led by as many as 10 points early in the fourth quarter when Williams hit a corner 3 and breakaway dunk in succession to make it 81-71.
New Orleans responded with five quick points on Alexis Ajinca's dunk and Anthony Brown's 3, and the Pelicans continued to peck away until Jones' fast-break layup, which came shortly after Galloway's 3, gave New Orleans its first lead of the fourth quarter at 90-89 with 2:58 to go, setting up the tense finish.
