The outcome wasn't decided until after a lengthy review by officials who were trying to determine if the inbounds pass from Vince Carter with less than a second left was tipped by the Kings, and also to determine if Lee got the shot off before the horn sounded.

Mike Conley led Memphis with 22 points and 11 assists, while Marc Gasol had 20 points. Lee's reverse layup gave him 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting.

Rudy Gay scored 25 points, while DeMarcus Cousins added 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Kings, who lost their third straight.
