Mike Conley has won the NBA's Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship.

Conley received 77 first-place votes out of a possible 334 and finished just ahead of Jeff Green and Channing Frye. The award is voted on by the players and is given to the player who reflects the ideals of sportsmanship, including ethical behavior, fair play and integrity. Despite the fact that he's locked into a playoff battle with the Thunder right now, this award comes as a nice personal reward for Conley as it was voted on by his peers.

This gives Conley 23 assists with three turnovers in the series, which is even more impressive since the Thunder forced 14.5 turnovers per game during the regular season. His two errors were costly ones late in overtime but the Grizzlies still got the victory behind admirable execution and a gutsy team effort on both ends.

The Grizzlies don't plan to make any big adjustments for Game 2 vs. the Thunder on Monday.

Head coach Dave Joerger said the Grizzlies "just need to be decisive and get our spacing correct," and his sentiments were echoed by virtually every player interviewed after the game. They'll need to be more energetic and forceful from the opening tip on Monday to even the series at 1-1 and shift home court advantage back to Memphis for Game 3.

Mike Conley said that his right hamstring injury has improved, though his status for Wednesday's game remains uncertain.

"I'm doing a lot of stretching and keeping heat on it, so it should be loose," Conley said. Fantasy owners relying on Conley for production in the season's final game should check back closer to tip-off for the final word on his status.

He was hobbling toward the end of the game, but still played effectively, finishing with 14 points and seven assists. Conley said after the game that he didn't think the injury would keep him from playing on Wednesday against Dallas, but owners will want to check back just to make sure he's good to go in the finale.

Mike Conley tweaked his right ankle in the Grizzlies' 109-92 win over the Wolves on Monday, but stayed in the game and finished with 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting, three treys, five boards, six assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

Yes, this is the ankle that he said was at "75 percent" with no chances of getting better or worse as the season goes on, and for that reason we'll put him on the injury report. The fact that he stayed in the game and played as well as he did suggests the injury is minor, however, and the Grizzlies are up to their necks in the playoff chase.
