Anthony Edwards and Jarred Vanderbilt, who were both dealing with the flu, said they weren’t 100% tonight but that they’re now feeling better. pic.twitter.com/nRLW14JQKh11:45 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The strategy for Wolves opponents on KAT this year has been to guard him with a wing and then bring a double-team when he posts up.
Tonight the Wizards opted to guard KAT with Kyle Kuzma but not bring double teams. It threw the Wolves for a loop early. KAT started the game 0-6. pic.twitter.com/Bxj0rT2gR711:25 PM

📝 GAME RECAP
Back home with a W. #DCAboveAll
@Montrezl Harrell: 27p (season high)
@Bradley Beal: 19p, 6r, 9a
@Daniel Gafford: 18p, 10r, 3b – 11:00 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Joel Embiid says he wouldn’t use getting sick as an excuse, but that it will take him awhile to get his legs and cardio back under him. He has gone 7-for-33 across the past two games after a huge performance in his return Saturday against Minnesota. – 10:53 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Davis Bertans says the first day Montrezl Harrell walked in the Wizards’ practice facility, he told him he’s glad he doesn’t have to play against him anymore because he is such a tough opponent. He also said they almost fought in a game once. – 10:49 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Montrezl Harrell’s 10 dunks tonight are a franchise record, per the Wizards, since dunks began being tracked in 97-98.
Previous was JaVale McGee (8) vs. Atlanta in March 2010 – 10:46 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Montrezl Harrell says he’s feeling better after having a cold that affected his conditioning during the recent road trip. Rebounded with 27 points.
“I’m having a great deal of fun.” – 10:35 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
After sitting down gingerly at the press conference, Karl-Anthony Towns says that X-rays were negative on his tailbone.
“I feel better than I thought I was gonna feel.” – 10:34 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
X-rays on the lower back of Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns returned negative, source tells ESPN. KAT landed hard on his back in Minnesota’s loss to Wizards tonight. He had 34 and 10 before leaving game. – 10:32 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Anthony Edwards said he wasn’t feeling 100 percent tonight (he was on the injury report with the flu-like symptoms).
He also mentioned Towns was looking OK after the game. Said falls like that hurt a lot in the moment. – 10:30 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards pumping the breaks postgame about any concern about losing tonight in Washington:
“We’re just as good as anybody in the league.” – 10:30 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Wolves couldn’t figure out Wizards attack, looked slow most of the night (probably because a bunch of guys are under the weather) and Russell was 3-18. There are going to be nights like that in the league. As long as KAT is OK, that’s really all that matters. – 10:17 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
The Dallas Mavericks tonight:
– Shot 68.7% – a new team record
– Shot 79.6% on 2s – a new team record (39/49)
– The 79.6% is the 3rd-best mark in the shot clock era in NBA history
– The 79.6% would be highest w min. 40 2p FGA – 10:12 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Chris Finch on the Timberwolves tough December schedule: “Hey, listen, if we’re trying to do what we want to do and go where we want to go, you got to play and beat these teams.” – 10:07 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Unseld gave Kyle Kuzma a lot of props tonight for his defense on KAT (despite the 34 points). Knew Towns was going to get going, gave Kuzma an unglamorous job and appreciated his putting his head down and doing it. – 10:04 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
The best shooting percentage a team has ever had in a game against the Pelicans was when Minnesota shot 65.1 percent against them in April 2016.
The Mavs are currently shooting 69.2 percent with 2:45 left in this game. – 10:00 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Last time a team made 60% or more of their field goals against Pelicans: Nuggets on 11/17/2017 in Denver (146-114).
Worst opponent FG% in a game in franchise history: Timberwolves shot 65.1% on 4/13/2016 (144-109).
Mavericks currently shooting 68.8% w/ 2:45 left.
Embarrassing. – 10:00 PM

Awesome Wizards win against a good Timberwolves team playing great ball of late. That’s how they have to play. Ran with a purpose in transition, love to see that.
Hope Towns is OK. Wiz had no answer for him. Despite the loss, Minnesota is starting to figure stuff out. – 9:52 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Wizards take care of business at home and beat the Timberwolves 115-107.
Montrezl Harrell rebounds from a quiet road trip with 27 points, Gafford has 18p 10r, Bertans 15p. Beal 19p, 6r, 9a.
KAT had 34 and 10. – 9:40 PM

Pounded in the paint, Wolves fall to Wizards
Wolves 107, Wiz 115
On tonight’s show:
– Harrell + Gafford mash in the post
– KAT has 34, as Wiz dare Wolves to beat them with post ups
– DLo cools off (3 of 18)
– Guys back from illness a step slow
– Need more juice on offense – 9:36 PM

Bradley Beal with homage to Russell Westbrook with that left side bank shot – 9:10 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
38-foot Doncic shot at the buzzer was only his second miss of the half, but what at half it was: 22 points (on just 11 shot attempts), 10 assists, 2 rebounds.
Dallas’ 67 points is its third-highest-scoring first half of the season. Had 69 Saturday against Washington, 68 at S.A. – 9:05 PM
Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Good to see Davis Bertans shooting return tonight. 12 pts. 2-3 from three. – 9:05 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Not sure why the Wizards are shooting any 3s. They get to the rim anytime they want – 9:03 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Daniel Gafford airmails a pass way over Corey Kispert’s head so on his way down the court as he shakes his head at himself, he softly slaps himself in the face – 9:00 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the end of three quarter, the @Minnesota Timberwolves trail 91-88.
Towns leads all with 32 points and 10 rebounds, his fourth 30+ point/10+ rebound game of the season (69th career).
Russell is up to 9 points and 9 assists, approaching his second straight double-double. – 8:59 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Spencer Dinwiddie has 10 assists at the end of the third quarter, tying his season high for assists in an entire game. His career high is 14 assists, set during the 2019-20 season. – 8:58 PM

Timberwolves trail the Wizards 91-88 headed into the fourth quarter. Towns with 32. Harrell with 22 on 9 of 10. – 8:57 PM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt
In season’s past, the Wizards couldn’t have stomached Brad Beal’s 27% shooting on 3s. They can this season with the roster, and Beal is tinkering with a career-high in assists per game at 6. He has seven assists through three quarters vs. Timberwolves. – 8:56 PM
Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
This first half has felt a lot like the Minnesota game: hot shooting start by the visitors digs the Bucks a big hole, Giannis wills Bucks back into it, but Bucks not getting over the hump. – 8:53 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Spencer Dinwiddie and Bradley Beal have combined for 15 assists tonight — eight by Dinwiddie, seven by Beal. – 8:51 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Most teams have tried to exploit the Wolves blitzing PnR D by setting the screen higher to try and stretch out the Wolves D — trying to find the middle to then find the corner
The Wizards are intentionally setting screens lower, shrinking the D — trying to find the dunker spot – 8:50 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Montrezl Harrell is dapping up fans during a game, legend – 8:50 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns may have taken a shot to the family jewels, really labored to move after the putback. Timberwolves take a timeout as he limps off the court. – 8:28 PM

No Jaden McDaniels tonight has meant overlapping Vanderbilt and Okogie minutes tonight.
Kinda fun, kinda scary. – 8:05 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The Wizards did good scouting on this matchup. They looked at *how* the Wolves have been playing, not *who* they have been playing.
Poking at what has bothered the Wolves offense this year (KAT guarded by smalls) and understanding how the Wolves guard screens (KAT at the level). – 8:02 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Kat 5-8 after his 0-6 start. Starting to get the best of Kuzma. – 7:57 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
If the Wizards are going to guard KAT with one player, and if the Wolves plan to exploit that is with post ups, then KAT has to do his work early and get position deeper. Can’t let them push him out to 17 feet. – 7:55 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Timberwolves have no answer for Montrezl Harrell in the pick and roll
Already has 13 points on 5-6 shooting in 10 minutes – 7:55 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Montrezl Harrell just threw down an alley-oop. Literally, he Dwight Howard-style got up high and threw it down through the hoop. – 7:42 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
No one expected Davis Bertans to sprint straight to the hoop so Spencer Dinwiddie finds him in transition for an easy basket
Well, I shouldn’t say easy because it was an awkward dunk attempt but a bucket is a bucket – 7:40 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the end of the first quarter, we’re tied at 24.
Edwards leads all with 7 points on 3-6 shooting.

Pure dominance: Nuggets have a 128.5 ORtg, 104 DRtg, 24.5 NetRtg with that 3-man lineup this season. It’s Denver’s best 3-man NetRtg (minimum 150 min) and the 5th best NetRtg of any 3-man lineup in the NBA. pic.twitter.com/FmTtXjJqrl1:02 PM
