Valanciunas leads late burst as Grizzlies beat Bulls 101-90

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Jonas Valanciunas had 26 points and 14 rebounds, leading a fourth-quarter burst that carried the Memphis Grizzlies to a 101-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

Valanciunas, who had 32 points and 22 rebounds a night earlier in a loss to the Indiana Pacers, scored 10 in the fourth as Memphis used an 18-6 run to break open a close game.

"Jonas is Jonas, man," said second-year guard Ja Morant. "He's a top player for us. He commands the paint. Protects the paint. A walking double-double."
