Jeff Green is turning outcry into constructive outbursts regularly.

Add another scoring explosion off the bench to Green's résumé since teammates and coaches implored the Grizzlies' versatile forward to be more productive.

His 29 points Saturday night made Green the first reserve in Griz history to score 20-plus points in three consecutive games — this time, he guided Memphis to a 121-117 victory over the Sacramento Kings in FedExForum.

The Griz have scored 100 points in each of their last eight outings.

"It was closer than it should have been with the lead we had," Griz coach Dave Joerger said after his team's third straight win.

The Griz (28-20) cruised until the Kings rallied behind a 40-point fourth quarter.

Sacramento trailed by 22 points in the first half but took advantage of Memphis' erratic offense and closed the gap to 118-117 after Darren Collison banked in a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left. Courtney Lee was fouled intentionally and made two free throws to give the Griz a three-point lead.

Green stole the ball from Collison and it ended up in Lee's hands again. The Kings intentionally fouled Lee again.

He missed the first foul shot but sank the second one to account for the final score.

The Kings kept charging even though they never led.

Memphis was clinging to a 104-102 lead with five minutes remaining. Mike Conley answered with a midrange jump shot that beat the shot clock.

After rebounding Kings center DeMarcus Cousins' ill-advised 3-point attempt, the Griz extended their lead to six points on Marc Gasol's basket from 17 feet. Conley added a floater — just his second field goal of the night — as the Griz took a 110-102 lead.
