Memphis, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Conley made an impact in his return from injury, recording nine of his 22 points in the final five minutes to help lift the Memphis Grizzlies to a 98-93 victory over the New York Knicks at FedEx Forum.

Conley, who had missed the Grizzlies' last seven games with a sprained right ankle, went just 6-of-15 from the field, but came up huge down the stretch as Memphis closed out the contest on a 13-3 run to prevail.

Mike Miller also had a big hand in the Grizzlies' 15th triumph in their last 19 outings, pouring in a season-high 19 points off the bench while hitting 5- of-7 attempts from 3-point range.

The Knicks battled back from a 13-point halftime deficit before ultimately being dealt a sixth loss in seven games. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 of his 23 points after the break to lead the comeback effort.

Carmelo Anthony, fresh off a dazzling 30-point effort in Sunday's All-Star Game, finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds for New York.
