Kyrie Irving: 50 points D'Angelo Russell: 52 ---- Bradley Beal: 44 James Harden: 49 The Timberwolves have a weakness: perimeter creators. On the adjustments Ryan Saunders made to the Wolves defense after the Golden State game that again need a tweaking: https://t.co/sUaY9AOCUK
I’m a big fan of this kid!
Harden-esque volume from JK47 lately. No load management in journalism — this on the third night of a back-to-back-to-back.
Devote has been incredible this season, I talked to him about his off-season work & journey to get to this point in our latest podcast Banter From The Booth https://t.co/Hph3KFKxpp
The Boston Celtics are 1st in the league in offensive efficiency this season in spite of Kemba Walker shooting 26.8% on non-restricted area 2-point shots this season -- a range he shot 43.9% from on 483 attempts last season. Look out, East.
Memphis is my, “oops, I’ve accidentally watched too many of your games” team this year. It’s been a very enjoyable accident, and holy wow, Brandon Clarke has really brought it. Fun to have one of those gut “I really like him” guys kinda pan out.
Karl-Anthony Towns was wearing a brace on his wrist in the Wolves locker room postgame and he was also favoring a wrapped left ankle. When asked about the brace he said, “I’m dealing with more than that. Twenty-four. Let’s see how this goes.” Yesterday was KAT’s 24th birthday.
Interesting quote from KAT on the process of figuring out how much he has to shoot: “I felt in the game that I should’ve took some more shots maybe. Then I sat there and I really thought about it and said, ‘those are the right passes, the right plays.’ Our system is our system”
Observations after attending Wolves for 3 quarters: Jake Layman is an asset. Treveon Graham is a bricklayer. KAT could have had 40 if he worked inside, but Woofs prefer rim-bending 3s. James Harden is playing chess & opponents are playing tiddlywinks.
