Andy Greder

Lot of #Twolves nicked up: Anthony Bennett, Zach LaVine, Mo Williams. And Kevin Martin (wrist), Shabazz Muhammad (abs), Ricky Rubio (ankle).

Darren Wolfson

Nate Wolters legitimately could've helped the #Twolves. Could've allowed LaVine to play mostly SG, where he belongs.

¿Antetokounmpo, Mason Plumlee, Oladipo y Zach LaVine en el Concurso de Mates del 14 de febrero? #NBA All Star

Andy Greder

According to @Adrian Wojnarowski, #Twolves rookie guard Zach LaVine will participate in the slam dunk contest as part of all-star weekend in NY.

Jon Krawczynski

Concur RT @Kurt Helin: I love Giannis as much as anyone, but the Dunk Contest is Zach LaVine's to lose.

Kurt Helin

I love Giannis as much as anyone, but the Dunk Contest is Zach LaVine's to lose.

Alex Kennedy

This year's dunk contest will include Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee and possibly Zach Lavine, per @Adrian Wojnarowski.

Emiliano Carchia

Antetokounmpo, Mason Plumlee, Oladipo, LaVine will be in the Slam Dunk Contest sportando.com/en/usa/nba/149…

Demian Belmonte

Además del griego y Oladipo, Mason Plumlee y Zach LaVine podrían ser otros dos concursantes del concurso de mates del All-Star.

Steve Kyler

According to @Adrian Wojnarowski Victor Oladipo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Mason Plumlee and possibly Zach LaVine could be part of 2015 Dunk Contest

Jonah Ballow

Alright, Oladipo & Giannis are in. Now, LaVine needs to commit to Dunk Contest.

Jerry Zgoda

How high do you think @Zach LaVine just jumped?

Scott Howard-Cooper

Top 10: 1 Wiggins, 2 Mirotic, 3 Noel, 4 Payton, 5 McDaniels, 6 Black, 7 Nurkic, 8 Parker, 9 Papanikolaou, 10 LaVine. on.nba.com/1AQrmdF

Jerry Zgoda

Pop quiz, Wolves Nation: Mo scores 52 in 43 minutes tonight. How long before he's able to walk again? (LaVine plays other 4-plus)

Jeff McDonald

Lavine might have moves like Jagger. But on that last possession he had Keith Richards' jump shot.

Andy Greder

Zach LaVine has scored eight of the #Twolves last 10 points.

Jeff McDonald

I'll never forgive Zach Lavine for ruining Maroon 5.

Jeff McDonald

According to monitors ... Spurs: Parker, Green, Diaw, Duncan, Splitter. Wolves: Lavine, Wiggins, Budinger, Young, Dieng.

Jon Krawczynski

Plus/minus has many flaws, so tread carefully in using it. But Mo Williams was +18 and Zach LaVine was -26. Pretty glaring

Jon Krawczynski

Mo Williams in the starting lineup tonight for Zach LaVine. Wolves mixing things up as Flip promised on Saturday night

Andy Greder

Mo Williams will get the start at point guard over Zach LaVine tonight vs. Nuggets. #Twolves

Jon Krawczynski

Flip said there will be changes to the starting lineup going forward. He didn't like how Young, Muhammad or LaVine played.

Tony Jones

Andrew Wiggins and Zach Lavine have eight points each for Minnesota

Jon Krawczynski

#Jazz 47, #TWolves 41 at half. Burke 13, Hayward 9. Jazz 7-11 3s to offset 9 TOs. Wiggins, LaVine, Dieng all with 8 for Wolves

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine and Williams have scored all the points in a 10-2 run. First time they've played together since Dec. 3.

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine getting time at off guard alongside Mo. It's where he belongs, but Flip just hasn't been able to do it this year.

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Kings 37, #Twolves 29. Sacramento shoots 78 percent (14 of 18). Shabazz Muhammad, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine each with 6 points

Jon Krawczynski

#Kings 37, #TWolves 29 after 1. SAC shoots 78%. Gay 10/3r/2a, DMC 8. Wiggins, LaVine, Shabazz all w/6. Defense has been turned off.

Jason Jones

Kings might want to start bothering Zach LaVine a bit

Scott Howard-Cooper

Top 10: 1 Parker, 2 Wiggins, 3 Mirotic, 4 Noel, 5 McDaniels, 6 Payton, 7 Black, 8 Papanikolaou, 9 LaVine, 10 Exum. on.nba.com/1Hh3rXT

Jon Krawczynski

Thought I'd see a lot more of that from LaVine and Wiggins. Maybe when Rubio returns, we will.

Tony Jones

The athleticism of Zach Lavine and Andrew Wiggins is elite

Aaron Falk

Wolves getting out and running early in this one, and LaVine and Wiggins can get up the floor in a hurry. Minny up 15-11.

Rusty Simmons

GSW vs. MIN starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Speights; MIN -- LaVine, Wiggins, Muhammad, Young, Dieng. Out: Bogut/Ezeli.

Darren Wolfson

Agent Bill Duffy, Bay Area resident, taking in #Twolves-Warriors tonight. He has Wiggins, LaVine, and Shabazz.

Jason Kosmicki

OH-Ficial starters tonight Chandler/ Faried/ Mozgov/ Afflalo/ Lawson...Muhammed/ Young/ Dieng/ Wiggins/ LaVine

Anthony Slater

Scott Brooks told of the Zach LaVine comparison to Russell Westbrook: "I used to have to defend him. Now everyone wants to be Russell.”

Ryan Ward

Zach LaVine on guarding Kobe: “It was crazy. I caught myself a couple times during the game just watching him & thinking man, that’s Kobe.”

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine: "No 1 vs No 2 pick, they might have a game that's on NBA classic one day"

Jon Krawczynski

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"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Flip Saunders says that the Wolves will go with Mo Williams and Zach LaVine in Rubio's place. No plans to add another PG.
