Star of the Game

The Timberwolves sneak by the Knicks in a close fourth quarter to win by two. This is the second win in a row for Minnesota, thanks to a bounce back game from Anthony Edwards. After having season lows in both points and assist Sunday against Golden State, Edwards led the Wolves with 21 points and had two steals against New York. But with four turnovers and shooting 2/9 from three, it was far from a perfect game for the young guard.

Biggest Concern

Sure, Jaden McDaniels is still young, and it’s not fair to expect linear growth from a sophomore player in the NBA. That being said, it’s pretty frustrating to watch him go 0/5 from deep and shoot only 3/8 from the field. This kid has the potential to be a really great 3 and D wing. He’s quick, he’s got handles, and at 6’10” he would be a nightmare for match-ups. This season, though, he hasn’t been able to find that rhythm offensively, and until he does the wolves will be missing that deadly wing threat.

Number of the Night

4. Jaylen Nowell keeps impressing everyone with his meteoric rise. While this wasn’t one of his best games, shooting only 37.5% from the field, he still managed to rack up 14 points, six rebounds, and three assists. At the start of the season, Nowell struggled to crack the rotation. Now, he’s proving to be a vital piece of Minnesota’s young core. With a playing style that matches Anthony Edwards, he is the perfect one-two punch off the bench.

Next Game

The Timberwolves will play Atlanta tonight, January 19th, at 8:30 PM CST.
