Mike Conley scored 26 points, Marc Gasol added 24 points and the Memphis Grizzlies used a late run to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 99-93 on Tuesday and even the Western Conference semifinals at one game.

Conley hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 1:58 left to put the Grizzlies ahead to stay, then added an 18-foot jumper to stretch the lead to 94-90.

After hitting the key baskets in Game 1, Kevin Durant couldn't provide an answer for the Thunder. He missed his last three shots, including a pair of 3-point attempts, and finished with 36 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

Game 3 is Saturday in Memphis.
