Spurs need 2 overtimes to beat Grizzlies

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tony Parker scored 32 points, hitting two of San Antonio's three baskets in the second overtime, and Michael Finley blocked Memphis' last shot to send the Spurs to a 106-103 win Saturday night.

Parker's two baskets put the Spurs up by four before O.J. Mayo hit a 3-pointer for Memphis with 71 seconds left. The Grizzlies had a chance to send the game into a third overtime when Mayo drove the lane in the final seconds, but he couldn't get off a clean shot. He dished to Rudy Gay, but Finley was able to swat the ball from behind and the Spurs' Roger Mason came away with the loose ball.

Kurt Thomas, who scored the Spurs' first basket of the second overtime, added a final free throw for the last point with 0.5 seconds left on the clock.
