Star of the Game
Setting their sights on the Play-In Tournament, Minnesota chose to rest both Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. Anthony Edwards played, but on limited minutes. That being said, The Timberwolves bench kept it close to the final seconds of the game. With stellar performances from the likes of Jaylen Nowell, Greg Monroe and even Jake Layman, it’s difficult to identify any one player. Special recognition should go to Nathan Knight, though, who scored 17 points (shooting 7/12) in 16 minutes of play. Knight also added eight rebounds and three assists to his stats.
Both Minnesota and Chicago chose to rest up before the post season, so there weren’t very many star players who made an appearance tonight. That being said, the Wolves will be taking on the Clippers in the Play-In, and they were clobbered by them multiple times this season. Though they won’t have Kawhi Leonard back, Paul George has been on a tear lately, and this game will be far from easy.
Number of the Night
9. Initially feared to be a bust, Leandro Bolmaro showed that he has potential against Chicago. The young point forward scored 11 points (shooting 4/9) with three rebounds and four assists. His playing time was extremely limited this season, but hopefully he can make some jumps next season and be a spark off the Timberwolves bench.
The Minnesota Timberwolves will take on the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Play-In on April 12th at 8:30 CST.
