It was Vince Carter who created the turnover, but Mike Conley didn’t want to risk an easy two points by throwing the ball backwards to let the former high-flier finish what he started. Instead, the Memphis Grizzlies diminutive point guard did the next best thing: throw down his first dunk since 2014.
