Conley Leads Grizzlies Past Warriors to Even Series

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(OAKLAND) -- Mike Conley returned just eight days after having facial surgery to score 22 points as the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Golden State Warriors 97-90 on Tuesday night, tying the Western Conference semifinals at 1.

Wearing a clear mask to protect his swollen face and red left eye, Conley made his first four shots to get the Grizzlies started, and his teammates did the rest on defense.

Zach Randolph had 20 points and seven rebounds, and Marc Gasol and Courtney Lee scored 15 points each to help Memphis end Golden State's 21-game home-winning streak. The Warriors dropped to 42-3 on the season at Oracle Arena, losing for the first time at home in more than three months.

Game 3 will be on Saturday in Memphis.

(MEMPHIS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies are on the cusp of eliminating the Portland Trailblazers from the first round of the playoffs, but they will have go without point guard Mike Conley in game four.

Conley's face was on the receiving end of Portland's C.J. Miller's elbow in the third quarter of Saturday's 115-109 victory.

"Mike Conley has a facial injury, we flew him back to Memphis to be reevaluated, he will be out for Game 4," said Memphis head coach Dave Joerger.

Conley was taken to a medical facility Saturday evening and was released later the same night to return for team dinner.

Conley has averaged 16 points per game in Portland's three victories.

Grizzlies Earn Franchise's First 2-0 Playoff Lead with Win over Blazers

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(MEMPHIS) -- Mike Conley and Courtney Lee each scored 18 points as the Grizzlies beat Portland 97-82 Wednesday night to grab the franchise's first 2-0 lead in a playoff series.

The Grizzlies took full advantage of starting the playoffs at home for only the second time in their short postseason history. They had only won their playoff opener once before, and that was on the road in San Antonio in 2011.

"All we did is just take care of home court, which we were supposed to do," Lee said. "We didn't want those guys to come in here and get one and switch home-court advantage in their favor."

Marc Gasol had 15 points, and Zach Randolph and Beno Udrih added 10 points each.

Game 3 in this best-of-seven series is Saturday night in Portland.

Grizzlies Win as Blazers Offense Misses Mark

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(MEMPHIS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies took game one with a 100-86 victory over Portland Sunday after the Trailblazers couldn't find a groove. 

Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge combined for 46 points; however they only converted on 18 of 55 shots (33%).

On the other end of the court, Beno Udrih scored 20 points for the Grizzlies off the bench.

"Beno gets the game ball," Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph said. "With Mike [Conley] being out, [it] helps him get his confidence up and playing."

Randolph added 16 points of his own and grabbed 11 rebounds. Marc Gasol also grabbed 11 rebounds and added 15 points.

The banged up Trailblazers feel that game one was a jolt to the system.

"I think a good wakeup call for us," Aldridge said. "But definitely tonight they manhandled us."
