Morant, Melton lead Grizzlies to opening win over Cavs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Ja Morant had 37 points and six assists, De'Anthony Melton added 20 points and the Memphis Grizzlies pulled away in the fourth for a 132-121 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night in the opener for both teams.

Morant and Melton combined for 14 points down the stretch as the Cavaliers pulled within a point on a couple of occasions but could never overtake Memphis. Desmond Bane added 22 points for Memphis.

"Our defense generates our offense," Morant said. "Our mindset was just get stops late and go on the other end and execute."
