What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Blazers had the second 15-assist, 30-turnover game of the NBA season.
Pelicans also reched those depths, just Saturday night, in Minnesota. (And then Pelicans won in Minnesota tonight despite 19 assists and 20 more turnovers.) – 1:19 AM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Without Zion Williamson, the Pelicans are leaning heavily on Jonas Valanciunas and Brandon Ingram. Monday, they delivered as New Orleans finally broke into the win column.

Anthony Edwards made it clear that loss was all on him, KAT and DLo.

Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Jonas Valanciunas on BI’s shots late to close out the game:
“When I see him go into his middy, I feel confident. I don’t even go for the offensive boards because I know he’s going to make it. It makes my job easier.” – 11:44 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Jonas Valanciunas, after being asked about the centers he’s already faced (Embiid, Vucevic, Towns twice): “I’m always looking for the matchups, (against) the big guys. I’m enjoying playing hard. That’s my game. That’s my style. I’m never going to back down from the big matchup.” – 11:40 PM

“Every player goes through a slump at some point in the season. His just happens to be right now. He’s not the only one that’s not particularly shooting the ball well. He’ll be fine.” – 11:01 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The Wolves gave up 21 offensive rebounds in the first game against the Pelicans and 15 offensive rebounds tonight (Valanciunas had 9).

Partially in regards to a big-time steal late, Willie Green states to postgame media, “Herb Jones is a basketball player,” saying he can plug him into any position and he’ll know what to do.
So impressive for a rookie.

Jonas Valanciunas played 39 minutes. Willie Green said JV called a timeout on his own to catch his breath. – 10:42 PM

Willie Green says Jonas Valanciunas was huge tonight — calling him a warrior — but also added JV called a timeout on his own cause he was winded. (Played 39 minutes — averaged 28.3 last season) – 10:40 PM

The collision of needing points and needing to get defensive rebounds is *the* Wolves conundrum with this roster.

They’re scoring, but they can’t stop Valanciunas on the glass. – 10:16 PM

Devonte’ Graham has had a couple of those prayers answered, but this guy is quickly proving the harder the shot, the more likely it’s going in.
Pelicans withstand a Anthony Edwards/Timberwolves flurry to take an 80-73 lead into the 4th. – 9:55 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the end of three quarters of play, the Timberwolves trail 80-73.
Edwards erupts for 21 points in the quarter, a career-high for any quarter, to give him 23 on the night.
Towns is up to 23 points and 12 rebounds, good for his second 20/10 game of the season (208th career). – 9:55 PM

Well that quarter was fun. I think Anthony Edwards briefly turned into an asteroid. Pels led by as many as 21, but it’s down to 7. – 9:55 PM

Best half of basketball by the Pelicans as they take a 54-43 lead to halftime. Offense wasn’t on point throughout, but that defense frustrated the hell out of the Timberwolves. That’s the template for now. Lets hope they keep batting like this. – 9:14 PM
