Grizzlies outlast Spurs 117-116 in 3OT

SAN ANTONIO - DECEMBER 17: Vince Carter #15 of the Memphis Grizzlies takes a shot against the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center on December 17, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) The Memphis Grizzlies ended years of frustration in San Antonio, and had to play late into the night to do it.

Marc Gasol scored 26 points, including a banked-in 3-pointer as regulation expired, and Memphis overcame blowing a 23-point lead for a 117-116 triple-overtime victory over the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies were seconds from defeat at the close of regulation and in the first and third overtimes, but showed the fortitude needed to snap a 10-game losing streak in San Antonio.
