Default Dante Cunningham steps up to help Grizzlies beat Wolves

Gay, Cunningham lead Grizzlies over Wolves -- The AP reports: With starting center Marc Gasol out with a bum right ankle, the Memphis Grizzlies started a front line of forwards. And Dante Cunningham, who filled Gasol’s spot, took advantage of the opportunity with his best performance of the season. Rudy Gay scored 21 points, Cunningham added season highs of 13 points and 14 rebounds, and the Grizzlies beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 93-86 on Tuesday night. Cunningham, who played only one minute in the Grizzlies’ 102-96 victory at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, played 40-plus and was 6 of 9 from the field as all five Memphis starters finished in double figures... Marreese Speights had 18 points and Tony Allen finished with 13 as the Grizzlies won their second straight. Kevin Love led Minnesota with 28 points and 11 rebounds, while Wayne Ellington scored 15 points, shooting 6 of 10. Derrick Williams added 14 points for the Timberwolves, who have lost six of eight. Both teams were dealing with injuries. The Timberwolves were without guard J.J. Barea and center Nikola Pekovic, while guard Ricky Rubio is out for the season after knee surgery. Michael Beasley is dealing with a sprained toe on his left foot that limited him to 11 minutes and 3 points against the Grizzlies.
