Despite a standout solo performance from Golden State's Steph Curry, the Memphis Grizzlies have won an epic NBA clash in overtime to book their place in the Western Conference playoffs.
Curry scored 39 points but finished on the losing side as the Ja Morant-inspired Grizzlies kept their nerve for a 117-112 win in California.
Morant bombed in a career-high five three-pointers on a 35-point night for the ninth-seeded Grizzlies, who will enter the West's main draw in the No.8 position.
"I know it's a big accomplishment for all of us, but me and Dillon (Brooks) know the job's not finished," Morant said.
"We have to lock back in to playing Utah who has the best record in the league."
Brooks had 14 points, Grayson Allen (12), Xavier Tillman (11), Jaren Jackson Jr. (10) and Desmond Bane (10) also scored in double figures for Memphis.
They will open a best-of-seven first-round series on the road against Joe Ingles' top-seeded Utah Jazz on Sunday, and end a three-year playoff drought.
"We gave it all we had to move on and I know we have more left. What a heck of a game. It took overtime against a heck of a ball club," Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said.
"We have to keep building, keep fighting."
The season ended for the Warriors, who lost two straight in the new play-in format, including 103-100 on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
Golden State rallied from a late 10-point deficit to force OT but fell short of returning to the playoffs for the first time since reaching five straight NBA Finals between 2015-2019.
Andrew Wiggins had 22 points and Jordan Poole 19, while Draymond Green's triple-double was made up of 11 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists.
"Obviously a crushing way to go out, two straight games that were basically gut punches," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
"We felt like we had control of the game the other night and lost and then really didn't have the control of this one but could have won. We had the last shot in regulation. The ball just didn't go our way."
