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.
