San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Despite uncharacteristically losing their way for a critical time, the San Antonio Spurs regained their championship form when it mattered most to put the Memphis Grizzlies in an unwanted position in the franchise's first-ever Western Conference finals trip. Tim Duncan came up with a pair of huge baskets down the stretch in overtime, and the Spurs bounced back from a fourth-quarter fade to claim a 93-89 Game 2 victory over the Grizzlies and move halfway to another conference crown. Duncan finished with a team-best 17 points, while fellow veteran Tony Parker scored 15 while dishing out a career-high 18 assists to help right the ship after the Spurs blew a 13-point lead with 7 1/2 minutes remaining in regulation. The Grizzlies shot just 34 percent in struggling offensively for a second straight time in this series, but clamped down on the defensive end down the stretch to produce a 15-2 run that forced the extra session. Mike Conley and Jerryd Bayless each netted 18 points and fueled Memphis' late rally, with Conley forging an 85-85 stalemate through regulation after knocking down a jumper in the lane with 18.2 seconds left. Zach Randolph overcame a slow start to contribute 15 points and 18 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who will return home seeking to climb out of their 0-2 series hole in Saturday's Game 3.
