Gay, Conley help Grizz get past T-Wolves

Both teams missed key free throws in the final seconds. When Mayo missed the second free throw with 10.8 seconds to play, Minnesota had a final chance. With the Wolves down 97-95, Ramon Sessions (16 points) drove to the basket and was fouled with 1.8 seconds to play. Needing to make both free throws to tie the game, he missed the first free throw and the Timberwolves couldn't secure the rebound of the intentional miss.

The loss was more of the same for the Timberwolves, who were trying to win consecutive games for the first time this season. Since beating still-winless New Jersey to open the season, Minnesota has lost 16 of 17 games.

"Once again our youth was exposed," Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis said. "We won every quarter except the critical one. We couldn't get organized offensively, couldn't get good scoring chances, good looks."

For Memphis, the victory allows the Grizzlies to return home with a better feeling.

"We've been out on the road like 17 or 20 days this year," Hollins said. "We're a bit tired. At halftime I told the guys that as long as we're here, we might as well win the game. Don't feel sad that you're tired. Go out and win the game."

Conley and Gay made sure that happened.

NOTES: The Timberwolves are expected to learn Thursday if forward Kevin Love will be medically cleared to return to full action. Love, who has not played this season after breaking a bone in his left hand in a preseason game, has begun participating in practice. Rambis said it is possible that Love could return to action as soon as Friday at New Orleans. ... The game ends a stretch for Memphis in which the Grizzlies played 12 of their first 19 games on the road. The game completed a five-game trip.
