Grizzlies Fall in OT to Warriors, 118-115 

Miller hits 45; only seven Grizzlies score, as Barone shortens bench.

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports — Mike Miller was in a frightening zone for the Memphis Grizzlies. Baron Davis was still out for Golden State, and Jason Richardson was decidedly rusty.

The Warriors survived it all — and though it's still February, their overtime win put these longtime losers in playoff position.

Monta Ellis scored nine of his 22 points in extra time, and the Warriors survived Miller's franchise-record 45 points for a 118-115 victory Wednesday night.

With their first win after the All-Star break, the Warriors moved into eighth place in the Western Conference race — no small achievement for a club that hasn't been in playoff position this late in the season since 1996.

Despite injury issues and the discombobulation from an eight-player trade last month, Golden State is making steady progress — and not even Miller's nine 3-pointers could slow it.

Recap and (very interesting) box score here.
