BOSTON (AP) — Marcus Smart converted a go-ahead, three-point play with 52 seconds left, Avery Bradley added a clutch jumper with eight seconds remaining and the Boston Celtics ended a five-game losing streak against the Memphis Grizzlies with a 95-92 victory on Wednesday night.
Bradley scored 17 points for the Celtics, who won their second in a row as they chase a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Smart put Boston ahead 91-90 with the last of 14 lead changes in the game, which ended when Mike Conley missed a deep 3-pointer for Memphis just before the buzzer.
Conley led Memphis with 20 points despite missing time in the second half with an injured ankle or knee. Tony Allen added 16 and Zach Randolph scored 14, pulled down eight rebounds and added five assists.
