MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The David Fizdale era as Memphis coach didnt get off to a glowing start.The end of his opening night was much more enjoyable.The Grizzlies climbed out of a 16-1 hole, put together 16 straight points early in the second half and beat Minnesota 102-98 on Wednesday night, spoiling Tom Thibodeaus debut as Timberwolves coach.Memphis, which still trailed with 1:45 remaining, closed the game on an 11-5 run to seal the win for Fizdale, the former Miami Heat assistant who was hired to replace Dave Joerger in the offseason.You noticed I kept my poise, Fizdale said of the anemic start that caused him to call a pair of early timeouts.

The turnovers werent bad, but, you know, some of the mental mistakes got us down the stretch.TIP-INS:Timberwolves: Minnesota connected on eight of its first 10 shots. ... Rookie Kris Dunn, the fifth overall pick, made his NBA debut near the 4-minute mark of the first quarter. He finished with eight points after hitting all three of his shots in the first half. I think Im starting to get comfortable, he said, so I wasnt really nervous. But, you know, playing in a crowd like that, it was great.Grizzlies: G Vince Carter is the oldest player currently in the NBA at 39 years and 274 days. He entered the game in the first quarter, moving him into 26th place on the career games played list with 1,275. He passed Terry Porter. ... Memphis is 2-14 in home openers. The only win before Wednesday was in 2014 over Minnesota.SUCCESSFUL OPENINGFizdale became the first Memphis coach to win his debut since Tony Barone Jr. won his first game in the middle of the 2006-07 season, serving as interim coach after Mike Fratello was fired.FAST STARTAfter the 16-1 start, Minnesota would eventually lead 20-3, its largest lead of the night. We were playing the exact game plan we wanted coming in, Towns said. .We were playing defense at a high level. We were playing quick, the way we wanted to play.FIRST-AID LISTMemphis played without F Brandan Wright (left ankle) and Chandler Parsons (right knee rehab), who were inactive.
