Flip's first subs into teh game are LaVine, Gorgui and Bennett. Ricky and Budinger are 2 starters still out there. Wolves lead 24-15

Jerry Zgoda

From last night: Going back to school with @Zach LaVine, who's learning both G spots on job, with Wolves Daily video strib.mn/1wgAUeI

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said he'd have thought twice about Ricky not playing for Iowa crowd if he didn't plan to give LaVine, WIggins, etc., long looks

Ray Richardson

#Twolves have that much faith. MT @TheWileECoyote: If PG & SG is such a challenge, why don't they just let Zach LaVine back up SG for now?

Ray Richardson

Note: #Twolves rookie Zach LaVine shows strong work ethic -- and some of it is out of necessity. twincities.com/timberwolves/c…

Jon Krawczynski

Flip pretty candid on rookie Zach LaVine today: "We love him and we hate him, sometimes on the same play."

Chris Palmer

Wiggins. LaVine. Bounce Brothers. That works.

Amin Elhassan

In turn, I am nick naming them "Nah, brothers" RT @_JarrelHarris: Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine nicknamed themselves the "Bounce Brothers".

Alex Kennedy

First there was the Splash Brothers. Now, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine are calling themselves the Bounce Brothers: youtu.be/nska_7c9JpI

Emiliano Carchia

He can fly RT @ETSportando: (VIDEO) @Zach LaVine ’s 15 points against the Philadelphia 76ers sportando.com/en/usa/nba/137… http://t.co/TbPR6Uwu0s

Ray Richardson

Final: #Twolves 116, #Sixers 110. Veteran guard Mo Williams leads all scorers with 19. Zach LaVine chips in 15; Andrew Wiggins has 11.

Jon Krawczynski

Welcome to Minnesota, LaVine. Lob from Mo to get him going

Ray Richardson

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders wants to see Zach LaVine bounce back from a "subpar game" and Andrew Wiggins use first game "as a springboard."

Ray Richardson

After rough first preseason game Tuesday, rookie Zach LaVine is one of the last #Twolves player on Target Center court Thursday.

Ray Richardson

A few nickels worth. The #Twolves rook had five points, five rebounds, five turnovers. MT @rencito_4040 What was Zach's Lavine's final line?

Ray Richardson

#Twolves shot 37 percent from the field. Bricklayers were Muhammad (3-11), Wiggins (4-11), LaVine (2-9), Rubio, Barea, Hummel each (1-6).

Ryan Wolstat

Now Wiggins draws an offensive foul. Doing a bit of everything. Meanwhile, LaVine is intriguing. Getting some work at PG as well as SG

Ray Richardson

A #Twolves copycat. MT @BleacherReport: VIDEO: Kyrylo Fesenko fails trying to imitate Zach LaVine’s windmill dunk. ble.ac/1ncifAR

Ryan Wolstat

Zach LaVine is not shy. Wiggins with his aggressiveness would be interesting.

Jerry Zgoda

JJ in for Ricky, Thad last starter still on floor. Out there w/ Shabazz, LaVine and Ronny as well

Ryan Wolstat

LaVine in early, Flip immediately tells him he has shooter on the free throw and to move to other side. Then he shoots air ball three. Rook

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine in for Corey, now playing alongside Ricky and forced long jumper right away

Ryan Wolstat

Kyrylo Fesenko just tried to do a windmill like Wiggins/LaVine … it’ didn’t work

Ray Richardson

#Twolves rookie Zach LaVine said physicality is biggest adjustment: "I ran into (Nikola) Pekovic on a screen and my whole body collapsed."

Ray Richardson

A thing learned in #Twolves training camp: No one can sing. Team did karaoke in Mankato, and it was bad, Ricky Rubio and Zach LaVine said.

Jerry Zgoda

Teams today:Wiggins, Gorgui, LaVine, Bud, Fesenko, Mo, Thad, GR3 on one. Corey, Ricky, JJ, Heslip, Pek, Turiaf, Bennett, Hummel, Shabazz

Ray Richardson

If Mo Williams and Zach LaVine play in backcourt, coach Flip Saunders said LaVine will likely play point, w/ Williams at off guard. #Twolves

Jon Krawczynski

Great point. RT @alex_cono: Sure, LaVine didn't dominant in college ball. But do you know who else didn't? LeBron James.

No question Zach LaVine is going to win the 2015 Dunk Contest.

Jerry Zgoda

If you hear anybody in national media say LaVine can't shoot...don't believe them

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine has a nice looking jumper. Very smooth

Ray Richardson

Thad Young and Zach LaVine wore #22strong jerseys in honor of MSU-Mankato football player Isaac Kolstad, who was seriously beaten in May.
