    DARREN Collison drilled the game-winning free throws as the Sacramento Kings held off the slumping Memphis Grizzlies, 91-90, at the Golden 1 Center on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time).

    The Kings led by seven midway through the fourth, before Zach Randolph and JaMychal Green powered an 8-0 blitz to get the Grizzlies ahead 86-85 with 2:27 to go. A pair of free throws by Buddy Hield gave the Kings back the lead, and Willie Cauley-Stein extended Sacramento’s advantage to three with a short stab, but Mike Conley got the Grizzlies back within one, 89-88, with 48 seconds remaining.

    Randolph drew a loose ball foul in the next play, and the Grizzlies vet sank his charities to regain the advantage 90-89 with 32.9 ticks to go. The Kings then turned the ball over in the ensuing possession, but Conley missed on a jumper and Collison drew a foul on the rebound play. The Kings point guard drilled the go-ahead free throws with five seconds remaining and held on to the win after Randolph missed on a three at the buzzer.
