INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Marc Gasol scored 20 points and Mike Conley added 13 points and 10 assists in his return home Thursday night, helping the Memphis Grizzlies rally for a 112-103 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

The Grizzlies (1-1) had seven players score in double figures and closed it out by finishing the game on an 18-7 run.

George Hill had 20 points for the Pacers while Paul George and C.J. Miles had 18 each. It wasn’t quite enough for the Pacers to avoid their first 0-2 start in six years.

The Pacers appeared to take command when they pulled out to a 75-66 lead with 1:44 left in the third quarter.

But the Grizzlies answered with 11 straight points to retake the lead early in the fourth. After the Pacers took a 96-94 lead on George’s free throws with 4:03 left, Gasol tied it with a short runner that sparked the final scoring flurry.
