MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Quincy Pondexter scored 24 points, Marc Gasol and Jerryd Bayless added 18 each, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-99 in a preseason game on Tuesday night.

Mike Conley finished with 17 points, and his three-point play with 30.3 seconds remaining gave Memphis the lead for good as the Grizzlies (2-2) outscored the Bucks 10-2 in the final minute.

Brandon Knight led the Bucks (0-4) with 19 points, while Khris Middleton added 15. O. J. Mayo had 14 points, including converting 4 of 5 from beyond the arc. His consecutive 3-pointers gave the Bucks a 97-92 lead with 1:04 left before the Grizzlies made their final push.

Memphis led by as many as 11 in the first half before taking a 54-49 lead into the break.

The Grizzlies played without regular rotation players, Mike Miller, Zach Randolph, Tayshaun Prince and Kosta Koufos.
