More importantly, the Grizzlies completed the largest comeback in franchise history after trailing by 29 points in the third quarter. Memphis trailed 69-46 at halftime. The Western Conference contender also faced a 9-point deficit in the final minute of the fourth quarter before sending the game into overtime.
“Our defense really clamped down down the stretch where we were trying to keep them off the boards,” mentioned Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins. “Couple of tough bounces, but we came up with enough plays down the stretch.”

“Really started at halftime,” Jenkins said of Memphis’ rally. “We didn’t watch any film. I just opened up the floor to the players to talk and said, ‘What do you got for me?’ Four or five guys spoke up and said it was unacceptable what we were doing in the first half.
“We were too casual, we weren’t communicating, we weren’t executing our coverages, we weren’t playing with physicality, we weren’t trusting the pass.” The Grizzlies went on to outscore San Antonio 17-11 in overtime.
