PHOENIX - The Memphis Grizzlies are back in the playoffs and the upstart Phoenix Suns are staying home. Mike Conley and Zach Randolph made the critical plays in the final 68 seconds and the Grizzlies pulled out a 97-91 victory over Phoenix that clinched the last playoff spot in the West and eliminated the Suns from post-season competition. Randolph scored 32 points to lead the inside power game that was just enough for Memphis to beat the Suns for the fourth time in four games this season. There were 15 lead changes in an intense fourth quarter, with Memphis scoring the final seven after Phoenix took a 91-90 lead on Miles Plumlees tip-in with 1:27 to play. Conley, taking a pass from Randolph, followed with a 3-pointer that put the Grizzlies up 93-91 with 1:08 to go. It was the first go-ahead 3 of Conleys career with two minutes or less remaining in a game. Dragic threw the ball away on Phoenixs next possession and Randolph scored the final two of his 32 points to give Memphis a 95-91 cushion with 47.4 seconds to go. "Its stressful, being in a game that both teams are going back and forth," Conley said. "Every time we made a play, they made a play. Give them credit, they played their hearts out. We were just able to make enough plays down the stretch." Memphis weathered 19 turnovers to win its fourth straight, a streak that began with a win over Miami. "Weve needed every game basically since February it seems like," Conley said. "Weve played every game like a playoff game. Its been fun to be part of a group that comes in and stays focused and to get back in the playoffs. Its huge from where we started off this season." The Grizzlies were 10-15 after a loss to Dallas on Dec. 18. "This is a culmination of not just this week or not just March or April, this is a culmination of everything weve been through since December," first-year Memphis coach David Joerger said. "For these guys, its a happy locker room, a relieved locker room and just a bunch of very proud guys with great chemistry." Mike Miller added 21 points, Marc Gasol 17 and Conley 13 for the Grizzlies, in the playoffs for the fourth straight season. Markieff Morris had 21 points, and Channing Frye scored 14. So did Dragic, playing on a sore ankle. The Grizzlies can move ahead of Dallas for the No. 7 spot with a victory at home over the Mavericks in their regular-season finale Wednesday night. The Suns lost their third straight to come up just short of the playoffs in a remarkable turnaround season under first-year coach Jeff Hornacek, winning 22 more games than a year ago, with one to play, after going 25-57 in 2013. "Its really tough to say something positive right now," Dragic said. "Nobody expected us to play so good. We built some good chemistry with this team. A lot of new faces, a lot of young guys, new coaching staff, new GM, so I think were headed in the right direction. "When you are so close to the playoffs, you always want some little bit more." Phoenix is only the fifth team in NBA history to win 47 games and not make the playoffs. "These are the hardest games to win," Hornacek said, recalling his days as a player. "You have to do everything right. You cant have bad stretches." The last of Millers five 3-pointers — in six attempts — put the Grizzlies 86-85 with 3:10 to go. Miles Plumlee made a 16-footer and Phoenix led 87-86, then Gasol scored on a driving layup and Memphis was on top 88-87 with 2:23 left. Bledsoes 15-footer gave the lead back to Phoenix, then Conley sank a 20-footer, a hint of what was about to come, to make it 90-89 Memphis. Then came Plumlees tip-in and Phoenixs final lead. An early 15-4 run put the Grizzlies up 22-11 and it was 24-14 at the end of the first quarter. Memphis took its biggest lead, 44-31, when Randolph converted a three-point play with 2:54 to play in the second quarter. But the Grizzlies didnt score again in the half. Bledsoe ended the Suns string of eight straight missed 3-pointers and Phoenix scored the final nine points of the half to cut it to 46-42 at the beak. It could have been closer. Bledsoe missed a free throw what could have been a 3-point play and, after a Memphis turnover, P.J. Tucker took an off-balance shot before the halftime buzzer when Bledsoe was wide open for a layup. The Suns run continued in the third quarter, when Phoenix outscored Memphis 11-4 to start the period and took a 53-50 lead on Channing Fryes 16-foooter. Nobody led by more than six points the rest of the quarter, with Tony Allen going coast-to-coast in the final seconds for a layup that tied it at 67 entering the fourth.

The England batsman returns to Yorkshires team for the first time in 2016 for the County Championship encounter with Nottinghamshire, live on Sky Sports 2 from 10.30am on Sunday.Root is looking to build on another sensational few months for England, which saw him finish as their top run-scorer at the World T20, with 249 runs across his six innings at a strike-rate of 146.47, including a staggering 83 from 44 balls in a record run chase of 230 against South Africa.Roots attention now returns to the longer format ahead of another busy Test summer, Englands first Test against Sri Lanka getting underway at Headingley on Thursday, May 19.But he isnt the only one who will be using Sundays game at Trent Bridge as ideal preparation for that first Test - Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad and Alex Hales are also set to feature. Jonny Bairstow says hes feeling positive after scoring a double ton for Yorkshire Bairstow has again been in fine form for Yorkshire following an outstanding 2015 that saw him recalled to the Test team, striking a career-best first class score of 246 against Hampshire.In the opposing dressing-room, Hales, like Root, sees his first county cricket action of the summer having been granted an extended break, while Broad will be hoping for a greater impact than just the three wickets he managed inn Notts defeat to Lancashire.dddddddddddd.Looking to oust Hales as England opener is Yorkshires Adam Lyth, who, too, hit a hundred against Hampshire - he held Hales spot this time last year, but lost it after a tough Ashes series which saw him average only 12.77. Alex Hales will be looking to lock in his England openers spot Lyths Headingley team-mate Gary Ballance is another looking to earn back a place for England, hoping to perhaps fill in at number five in the order, the spot vacated by James Taylor after his cricketing career was cut short when diagnosed with a rare heart condition.Ryan Sidebottom is another former England international who could feature, although the 38-year-olds international career is well behind him, and he left the field with hamstring trouble when into only his sixth over of Yorkshires tussle with Warwickshire this week.If Sidebottom fails to prove his fitness in time for Sunday, it could mean a first Yorkshire start for fellow left-arm-seamer David Willey, an arrival from Northamptonshire during the close season. Will David Willey earn his first Championship start for Yorkshire? Willey is one of a possible five England World T20 squad members who could play, with Root, Hales, Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett - who also spanked an 82-ball hundred against Hampshire - the others.Further English interest is provided by Notts men Michael Lumb, Samit Patel, Chris Read and Harry Gurney, while outside bets for a first international call-up are Yorkshire seamer Jack Brooks and Nottinghamshire pacer Jake Ball.Watch all above the above in action in what is set to be a thrilling County Championship clash between Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.
