Mike Conley did everything he could against Michael Carter-Williams and the 76ers to avoid losing to the now 2-21 Philly team.
“Mike Conley just said, `Hey, I’m not tired. I want to win. Leave me in. I’ll do whatever it takes,’ so I got him enough minutes,” coach David Joerger said. “It’s been a tough two games to be 2-0 when we could wake up tomorrow and be 0-2 on this stretch.”
Conley forced OT with a 3-pointer and finished the game with a new career-high of 36 points to go with a team-high 9 assists.
