NBA - - - Timberwolves exact revenge, bite back, Grizzlies 116-80


PhilBoxing.com


MINNEAPOLIS - ​After ​losing their regular season opener to Memphis, 102-98, last October 26 at the FedEx Forum, the Minnesota Timberwolves retaliated with a 116-80 rout of the Grizzlies at the Target Center.

​In front of 14,774 fans, the Wolves opened their season at home with a bang, improving to 1-2 after bowing to the Sacramento Kings, 106-103, last Saturday at the Golden 1 Center.


UCLA alum Zach LeVine, the NBA's reigning slam dunk champ, paced the Timberwolves with a season​-​high 31 points, ​which included ​a perfect 4-​for-4 clip from the free throw line and a 5-for-9 outing from 3-point range. ​

"More focus, stop messing around, we know what we did the last two games, don't let it happen again" LaVine
​told reporters during the post-game interviews inside the Wolves locker room.

​Karl-Anthony Towns ​tallied ​11 point​s​ ​and ​10 rebounds​ ​while this year's no. 5 pick rookie Kris Dunn added 10 points, 6 assists and 5 steal​s​ in his first start in ​lieu of the injured Ricky Rubio.

Grizzlies coach David Fizdale didn't use his two of his starters ---​ Mike Conley​the highest paid NBA player this season​,​ and their veteran Center Marc Gasol.​ ​Former Dallas Mavericks Forward Chandler Parsons ​remains in the injured list and did not suit up for Memphis.

​Meanwhile, Nikola Pekovic ​ did not play ​​for the Wolves​.​

"I thought the ball movement was good from the beginning, I thought Kris (Dunn) got us playing with a good pace and when Tyus (Jones) came in, the pace was established," Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said during post game interview.

Rookie 6-11 Center out of Michigan Deyonta Davis topscored with 17 points with 6 rebounds for the losing Grizzlies, who dropped to 2-2​.

​OVERTIME. Timberwolves center/forward Gorgui Dieng signed a 4-year contact extension with the team.

Dieng, 26, 3-year pro, out of Louisville via Senegal who will receive $2.3 million this season agreed to a new deal worth $64 million as reported by the Undefeated.
