As the No. 7 seed, Memphis will played the second seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round.

The Grizzlies secured a rebound with under 30 seconds left in regulation, but Conley was called for a charge in the backcourt. Dallas got the ball and Monta Ellis drained a three pointer to tie things up with 13 seconds remaining. Randolph couldn't convert on an isolation and the game went to overtime. It was back and forth in the overtime, until Conley's clinch trip to the charity stripe.

Dirk Nowitzki did his best to keep the Mavericks afloat. He led all scorer with 33 points. But Dallas shot just 26.7 percent (8-of-30) from behind the arc and Ellis' last second jumper came off strong.

In losing, the Mavericks locked into the No. 8 seed. They will play the top seeded San Antonio Spurs in the first round.
