RJ Barrett helps Knicks come alive in late surge, seal deal against Grizzlies in OT


They missed 13 free throws and Ja Morant somehow flubbed a wide-open potential game-winner from about four feet away in regulation.


Their star, Julius Randle, finished with a triple-double (15 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) but struggled with fouls and missed shots.


He didn’t hit a field goal until late in the third quarter, continuing a funk that started last month.


Grizzlies' Ja Morant flubs in the final second of regulation, while Knicks' RJ Barret's moment came late in the game.


Barrett picked up his teammate against the Grizzlies (26-24), who were riding an impressive four-game winning streak with road victories in Miami and Philadelphia.


But the bench kept the Knicks afloat, with Derrick Rose, Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley combining for 58 points.
