Gorgui Dieng's scouting report: Wiggins jumps higher but LaVine is the better dunker
Has there been a starting frontcourt this season with less combined 3-point shooting than Young/Dieng/Pekovic?
I'll be interesting to watch how Wolves manage Pek's minutes with both him and Dieng in starting lineup
Wolves are starting Pek and Dieng next to each other, alongside Young, Wiggins and Williams.
Whiteside began getting real minutes 12/19. Most blks since: Gobert 50, A.Davis 45, Len 44, P.Gasol 42, D.Jordan 40, Dieng 39, Whiteside 33.
Just finished Pellies-Wolves. Would be nice to get extended look now at Dieng/Pek. Worth noting Pels found Brow for most crunch time shots.
Flip says they will look at playing Dieng and Pekovic together more and more.
Pek and Dieng together in the same frontcourt against Asik and Davis
Pelicans starters: PG Evans, SG Gordon, SF Cunningham, PF Davis C Asik T'Wolves: PG Williams, SG Wiggins, SF Hummel, PF Young, C Dieng
Tyson Chandler has put the cuffs on Gorgui Dieng. 1-3, 3 rebs in 15 mins.
Rudy Gobert and Jusuf Nurkic are hard not to include too, but do you really drop Gorgui Dieng or Steven Adams. How about Nikola Mirotic?
NBA announces Rising Stars Challenge will be US vs. World this year, which means Wiggins, Dieng & maybe Bennett will play for the bad guys
The World team could have Len, Gobert, Nurkic, Adams, Dieng and ZERO points scored in the paint.
Seriously, Bruno has no shot: Bennett, Len, Adams, Olynyk, Giannis, Schroeder, Dieng, Gobert, Mirotic, Wiggins, Exum, Nurkic, etc. etc.
Dieng's bank shot gives Wolves 108-100 lead w/ 2:07 left in Denver
OH-Ficial starters Chandler/ Faried/ Nurkic/ Afflalo/ Lawson....Budinger/ Young/ Dieng/ Williams
The Hibbert ejection must be more about the danger of such a play than intent. Dieng could have been seriously hurt.
That’s the first flagrant foul whistled on any Pacer this season. (Hibbert pulled Gorgui Dieng down by his jersey.)
Refs about to review foul by Roy Hibbert on Dieng. Hibbert already assessed personal, reviewing to see if it's flagrant.
Scola's Argentina won 81-46, and Scola had 22 points and 14 boards. Dieng had a team-high 11 points and eight boards.
We’re in a golden age for skinny, athletic tall NBA players. Gobert, Whiteside, BWright, Henson, Ed Davis, Dieng, Noel and more.
3Q: Spurs 84, Wolves 64. Daye 15 points, Duncan 13 points, Cojo 12 points, Mills 11 points, Parker 10 points. Dieng 18 points.
Gorgui Dieng 18, 11, 4 blocks. He is 7-11 FG. Rest of Wolves: 16-51
