NEW YORK — RJ Barrett scored 20 points, making a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:15 left in overtime, and the New York Knicks used a late rally to stun the Memphis Grizzlies 133-129.

Alec Burks had nine of his 19 in overtime and Julius Randle recovered from a scoreless first half to finish with 15 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in his fifth triple-double of the season.

The Knicks snapped the Grizzlies’ four-game winning streak.

They avoided a third straight loss and won for just the second time in seven games.
