1. LaVine keeps lighting it up

Another night in the starting lineup and another big game for Zach LaVine. LaVine knocked down six three-pointers and scored a game-high 28 points to lead the Wolves.

One of those was an incredible catch-and-shoot three from the corner.

2. Wolves build lead with 40 points in the first

The Wolves offense has kicked into high gear in recent weeks, but they haven't had a first quarter like Wednesday's in some time.

The Wolves scored 40 points in the first, and built a 20 point lead in the first half.

The Grizzlies made a run in the second half to keep it interesting, but the Wolves held on to the road win.

3. Towns, Rubio pick up double-doubles

While LaVine was lighting it up, both Karl-Anthony Towns and Ricky Rubio were taking care of the rest of it. Both had double-doubles Wednesday.

Towns finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
