About Last Night | Wolves Light Up Thunder

He added two points from the free throw line and assisted on three made buckets.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler was left flabbergasted by the presence of Kiwi NBA star Steven Adams in his side's 104-88 win over Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday. Jarrett Jack recorded the second triple-double of his career with 16 points, ten rebounds, and ten assists.

Russell Westbrook showdown in the second round, although methinks that Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns might have something to say about that.

Paul George shot 5-14 from the floor for just 13 points.

The Thunder actually started Tuesday fourth in the league in defensive rating, giving up 105.2 points per 100 possessions. This performance has brought the Wolves to 16th in the league in defensive rating which now stands at 106.2, which when matched with their 110.2 offensive rating gives the Wolves the fifth best net rating in the league at 4.0, sitting behind Golden State, Houston, Toronto and Boston.

Minnesota won seven of eight games before a disappointing East Coast road trip featured losses at Brooklyn and Boston. Minnesota won the first two by two and three points while the Thunder won the third by four points. Hosting LeBron James and Cleveland on Monday, Minnesota dominated play, led by as many as 41 points on its way to a 127-99 victory.

They'll surely have to attach at least one draft pick, however, and it remains to be seen how much of the future Coach Tom Thibodeau will be able to convince Executive Tom Thibodeau (not to mention general manager Scott Layden) to mortgage for (possible) short-term gain. "His pull-up three is a cash shot". It's the former Chicago Bulls trio of Thibodeau, Butler and Taj Gibson joining Towns and Wiggins that led to heightened expectations in Minnesota.

If he's not an All-Star in a month from now, we should probably cancel the All-Star Game.
