Markieff Morris added 17 points for Phoenix, while Alex Len had 14 points and 13 rebounds. P.J. Tucker, Eric Bledsoe and Marcus Morris had 11 points apiece.
Bledsoe had a chance to win it in the first overtime, but his off-balance shot in the lane banged off the front of the rim at the buzzer.
"He went in with a little pump fake, but it looked like he slipped, and he couldn’t get off a decent shot," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said.
Phoenix has lost two straight.
The Grizzlies were without forward Tayshaun Prince and swingman Quincy Pondexter, awaiting the completion of a three-team trade. On Saturday night, a person familiar with the deal said the Grizzlies, Boston Celtics and New Orleans Pelicans have agreed on a five-player trade that would send forward Jeff Green from Boston to Memphis. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade hasn’t been announced and formal approval by the NBA isn’t expected until Monday.
Prince would go from Memphis to Boston and Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans.
The Suns trailed by 16 in the second half and 14 early in the fourth quarter. Tucker’s layup tied it 101 with 5.9 left in regulation. The Grizzlies begged for basket interference, saying Bledsoe pulled the net as the ball was bouncing on the rim.
Bledsoe’s 3-pointer with 33.3 seconds left in the first overtime gave the Suns a 108-106 lead. The Suns stopped the Grizzlies on the next possession, but Thomas gave away the ball and Lee — fouled by Goran Dragic — made two free throws with 16.2 left. Bledsoe then missed at the buzzer, forcing the second extra period.
Suns: Phoenix has lost six straight in the series. … Brandan Wright, obtained from the Celtics on Friday, made his first appearance for the Suns, entering the game in the first quarter. He finished with seven points, hitting three of four shots. … The Suns are 0-4 in overtime this season.
Grizzlies: Randolph made six of his first seven shots and had 18 points in the first half. He had his second straight double-double after missing nine games because of soreness in his right knee. … Memphis’ last two opponents — Atlanta and New Orleans — were a combined 23 of 45 from 3-point range. The Suns were 8 of 35.
The Suns found themselves in foul trouble in the second overtime. Goran Dragic fouled out in the first overtime on Thomas’ turnover. On the first play on the second overtime, Len fouled out on Gasol’s field goal. Then Markieff Morris was called for his sixth foul with just over 2 minutes left.
SO LONG. FAREWELL
Even though the trade is not official, Memphis players were not bashful about their feelings. "It always affects you when a player gets traded or you’ve got rumor talk" Randolph said. "It’s part of being human."
