After 1: Grizzlies 25, Mavs 17

By Jeff Caplan

MEMPHIS -- The Memphis Grizzlies used a 13-3 run to end the quarter with a big spark from Dante Cunningham, who had six points during the spurt.

The Mavs, well, to little surprise, are shooting 35.0 percent while Memphis is well above 50 percent.

Dirk Nowitzki has just one point, making 1-of-2 free throws. He's not finding much room to breath with 7-foot-1 center Marc Gasol draped all over him. Typically Zach Randolph would take Dirk, but Gasol is doing a good job and induced a turnover late in the period. Dirk has just one shot attempt.

Meanwhile, Gasol has six points.
