    Mike Conley corralled a Monta Ellis miss with seven seconds remaining in overtime and took off the other way. Like a running back, he put his head down, tried to split four Mavericks on a drive to the basket and drew a foul. Conley hit the subsequent free throws with 1.1 seconds remaining in overtime Wednesday to lift the Memphis Grizzlies to a 106-105 win over Dallas that clinched them the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Following a Dallas timeout, Ellis, who scored 14 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, hit the back of the rim on a jumper from the top of the key at the buzzer. Memphis (50-32), which began the season 13-17 while dealing with a plethora of injuries, finished 37-15 and will face the second-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round. The Grizzlies knocked off the Russell Westbrook-less Thunder in the Western Conference semifinals last season before getting swept by San Antonio in the West Finals. Zach Randolph had 27 points and 14 rebounds, Marc Gasol tallied 19 points, nine boards and nine assists and Conley added 22 points and five helpers in the triumph. Dallas (49-33), meanwhile, will clash with their in-state rival Spurs in the first round. Dirk Nowitzki netted a game- high 30 points in defeat.
