2024-01-19 05:59:17

One last quarter of fire. To overthrow Memphis, missing several of its key players (like Ja Morant for the rest of the season due to shoulder surgery, Marcus Smart injured in the finger and Desmond Bane, injured in the ankle), Minnesota signed a devastating 37-17 in the last quarter to win at home this Friday (118-103).

The Timberwolves were able to count on Mike Conley (10 assists, 17 points), Naz Reid (20 points) and Anthony Edwards, who woke up in the second half, scoring 26 of his 28 points, accompanied by 5 rebounds and 5 passes in total). As since the start of the season, Frenchman Rudy Gobert was very solid (17 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists), also adding to his statistical record his record for blocks this season (6).

Leading at the break (55-50), Memphis, led by Jaren Jackson Jr. (36 points) and Luke Kennard (18 points), dived at the end of the match, when Minnesota slammed an 11-0 (96-89 , 40th) to gain the upper hand. The leader of the Western Conference thus signs a 30th victory this season (for 11 defeats) and a fourth consecutive success, before hosting its runner-up, OKC, on Sunday.
