Russell scores 37, leads T-wolves past Grizzlies 119-114

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) D'Angelo Russell had 23 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:23 left, to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves past the Memphis Grizzlies 119-114 on Thursday night. Karl-Anthony Towns added 22 points and 11 rebounds and Malik Beasley had 17 points on 5-for-7 shooting from 3-point range for the Timberwolves, who grinded and hustled their way through an inspired victory over one of the NBA's best teams. Ja Morant's 3-pointer from the top of the key with 5 seconds remaining fell well short for the Grizzlies, who lost the lead for good on Russell's layup with 7:11 to go.
