The Memphis Grizzlies snapped a season-long six-game losing streak on Sunday night at Target Center, knocking off the Timberwolves 115-107 after exploding for 67 points in the second half.

Both teams started the night off slow offensively, shooting less than 39 percent from the field in the first half, but it was the Grizzlies who found their rhythm in the third quarter. Memphis shot 13-of-26 (.500) in the third period, including 6-of-8 (.750) from three-point range, setting a season-high for points in a quarter with 38. The Timberwolves got hot on a 15-2 run late in the third quarter to grab a 76-71 lead with 3:41 remaining in the third. However, the Grizzlies would catch fire to end the period as they snapped off a 13-3 run to take an 86-79 lead into the fourth.

The Grizzlies saw their hot shooting carry over to the fourth quarter as they stretched their lead to as many as 12 points in the final quarter. The Grizzlies ripped of an 11-3 run to grab a 100-91 lead with (7:03) remaining in the game. Memphis’ hot shooting would prove too much for Minnesota to overcome, as Memphis shot 51.1 percent in the second half, including 52.9 percent from three-point range.

The Grizzlies were led by Dillon Brooks, who finished the game with 26 points, with 20 of those points made in the second-half. Brooks shot (9-of-18) from the floor, including (4-for-5) from behind the arc.

Grayson Allen chipped in a season-high-tying 13 points and five rebounds on 4-of-9 shooting off the bench.

Andrew Wiggins added 18 points, seven assists and six rebounds on 6-of-17 shooting. Jarret Culver tallied 14 points and seven rebounds while Jeff Teague chipped in 13 points off the bench, as Minnesota dropped to (10-9) on the season.
