Giannis guarding LaVine, 19-year-old vs. 19-year-old.
NBA history was just made at Target Center. Four teenagers -- Wiggins, LaVine, Antetokounmpo and Parker -- have played in the same game.
No Mo. So the Wolves are going to have to get REALLY creative when they try to get the ball up the court when LaVine needs a rest
Former UCLA player Zach LaVine at PG for Minnesota with Ricky Rubio and Mo Williams out. Williams out with strep throat and pink eye.
Great note from Wolves/Elias: Wolves-Bucks 2nite will be 1st time 4 teens have played in same game. (Wiggins, Parker, LaVine, Giannis)
LaVine: "No 1 vs No 2 pick, they might have a game that's on NBA classic one day"
LaVine on Jabari: "I know Andrew's been wanting to go at him cuz he's the No. 2 pick but I'm the 13 pick so I want to go at him too"
Wiggins tried to downplay tomorrow's matchup with Jabari. Not LaVine: "they're gonna be going at each other."
LaVine bails Williams out again with a foul on a jumper. Flip: "What is he doing?"
LaVine is just frantic out there. Kid needs to take a deep breath. Happens to lots of rooks
LaVine about to check-in for MIN. I expect 10 dunks this quarter.
Flip giving Zach LaVine a little breather. Mo Williams starting at PG tonight.
Not really surprised to see TWolves using a lot of off-ball movement to create shots- LaVine a rook and not a PG
Wiggins/Lavine could be a dynamite backcourt one day
Good 1st quarter for Wolves' future -- Wiggins, LaVine -- and Rockets lead 28-26 after a quarter here in Mexico City
Really nice 1st qtr for the two pups _ Wiggins and LaVine. You can see Flip likes Wiggins against Harden on the offensive end. Feeding him
Standing next to Zach LaVine, Kevin Martin looks like Dwight Howard.
LaVine could be the teen to beat in Brooklyn in February, unless he misses as many as he did tonight. Amazing vertical on that kid.
Close call on pregame dunk contest. For Rockets, give it to Dwight over Nick Johnson based on crowd reaction. For Minn, LaVine. No contest.
There was lone figure shooting at Wolves practice court other day but w/ LaVine & GR3 gone, it wasn't them. But who? Some guy named Garth
Today's fun fact: Zach LaVine now has started as many NBA games as he did in college at UCLA
So far LaVine has been a little overwhelmed trying to learn two positions. Now it's sink or swim time. May be a good approach
Wolves starting 19-year-olds in Wiggins, LaVine. Not sure when that happened before, guessing might been Chandler, Curry as Bulls rookies.
Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. Timberwolves starters: Zach LaVine, Kevin Martin, Wiggins, Thaddeus Young, Pekovic
And now Zach LaVine starting at point guard for the 'Wolves, not Mo Williams. And interesting look from Minnesota.
Rookie Zach LaVine is starting for the Wolves. Flip Saunders keeps Mo Williams in the bench role. There will at least 1 highlight.
Flip Saunders says that the Wolves will go with Mo Williams and Zach LaVine in Rubio's place. No plans to add another PG.
Zach LaVine's length giving Elfrid Payton a little trouble. Presumably a large part of why the Wolves would like him to play PG.
