At the NBA In-Season Tournament, the Minnesota Timberwolves and San Antonio Spurs square off on Friday during the group stage at Frost Bank Center.
After defeating the Phoenix Suns in two consecutive contests in Phoenix the previous week to improve to 3-2 on the campaign, the San Antonio Spurs seemed ecstatic. But after that, the Spurs have suffered 3 consecutive losses, sending them crashing back to reality. The most recent defeat, a 126-105 defeat to New York, was in front of an annoyed Madison Square Garden audience. The Spurs have allowed adversaries to shoot almost 50% from the field while having handed away an average of 133 points per contest in all three of these outings. Throughout the entire season, the Spurs’ defense has proved to be their biggest issue. Currently, the Spurs rank 29th in opponents’ PPG, 30th in opponents’ three-point percentage, 27th in opponents’ two-point percentage, and 30th in defensive rating.
The T-Wolves defeated the Pelicans 122-101 on Wednesday to go to 5-2 ahead of this game. Towns added 23 points to lead the team, but Anthony Edwards carried the team in scoring with 26 points as well as a season-high 8 assists. With 17 points plus 20 rebounds, Gobert showed off his dominance down low to lead the T-Wolves to victory for the 4th consecutive game. At this point, the Minnesota Timberwolves appear to be a legitimate postseason challenger. 6 Timberwolves players, led by All-Star Anthony Edwards, are now averaging double figures. Edwards is scoring 6.1 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 27.9 points per match on average. Rudy Gobert, Naz Reid, and Karl-Anthony Towns, the three main centers for the Timberwolves, are averaging 45 points and 26.3 rebounds apiece. Both Jaden McDaniels and Mike Conley are averaging just over 10 points per game. Jaylen Clark and G Jordan McLaughlin are both sidelined due to injuries.
