James Harden doesn’t feel there has been a lot of “consistency” in the way in which he’s been officiated this season. espn.com/nba/story/_/id…1:01 AM

James Harden didn’t take a shot in the fourth quarter as the Nets watched a late-game rally reverse course in Minnesota.
Harden owned up to being passive against the Wolves, but the Nets need him to be better: “I put that on me.”

Karl-Anthony Towns on his 15-point 4th quarter:
“Superstars show up when you need them the most and the 4th quarter got tight, so I had to come in, I had to show up at one point. I felt very confident that in the 4th quarter I was going to start hitting shots, and I was right.” – 11:49 PM

Seems like all in all there is not too much concern with Anthony Edwards from the Wolves after he knocked knees late in the game. Might be a little sore, but should be OK. – 11:27 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Karl-Anthony Towns says he attributes the turnaround the Wolves are making lately to a team meeting after the 10th game of the season (when they were 3-7, after 6 straight Ls).
In that meeting, each player had to define their roles. And KAT says those roles are clicking in now. – 11:11 PM

Since Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards returned from COVID protocols 9 games ago the Wolves are…
6-3
No. 1 offense in the NBA (119.0)
No. 18 defense (112.0)
No. 4 in net rating (+7.0)
They beat Brooklyn tonight, the No. 2 offense during that stretch. – 10:51 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Wolves are the No. 1 offense since January 3rd (when KAT + Ant +DLo returned from COVID protocols).
Chris Finch attributes the offensive surge to better “flow” — but that the rhythm changed when the starters were out during the COVID stretch and the bench got rolling. – 10:42 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
“Yeah, I think it’s been well documented that he’s one of the poster childs.”
-Steve Nash was asked if he thinks James Harden is the poster-child for new rule changes. Nash said he was back in Oct. Sounds like it’s still the case. – 10:37 PM

Anthony Edwards wasn’t really putting any weight on his right leg on his way to the locker room. Looked like a right knee injury with how the trainers were looking at him (he looked to have some contact from the side near halfcourt). – 10:29 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Anthony Edwards just went back to locker room with some help from T’Wolves personnel. Not sure if he tweaked an ankle at the end — but he wasn’t putting much weight down at all. – 10:26 PM

Wolves get back on track, knock off Brooklyn
Wolves 136, Nets 125
On tonight’s show:
– Big offensive night in game KAT started slow
– What went into holding Harden to 13 points (4/13 shooting)
– Playing (and resting) KAT + Ant + DLo together more
– Anthony Edwards gets hurt – 10:25 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Final: Wolves beat the Nets 136-125 to finish the road trip 2-2. Kyrie Irving dropped 30, Mills had 21 while Harden had just 13. Bad week for the defense. Nets return home to face the Lakers on Tuesday. See you all there. – 10:25 PM

Embarrassing defensive performance from Nets tonight. T’Wolves getting anything they want — especially down the stretch. Nash pulls Harden/Kyrie for the night.
Harden’s final line: 4-for-13 from the field, 13 points, 13 assists, five rebounds, six turnovers in 35 minutes. – 10:21 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Looking like Minnesota will beat Brooklyn tonight. The West isn’t where it’s been in years past, but with the Wolves now sitting at .500, should be in strong position to, at minimum, give themselves home court in the play-in tournament, and a legit shot at the playoffs. – 10:20 PM

Timeout Brooklyn as the @Minnesota Timberwolves have taken a 129-112 lead with 2:51 left.

Nash calls it the “care factor” — and it just hasn’t been there defensively all night for the Nets at the end of this four game trip. They’ve already given up 100 points and we’re still in the 3rd. It’s even worse given that KAT is just 2-for-11 from the field and has just 6. – 9:47 PM

Halftime: Nets trail the Wolves 72-62. Awful defensive first half for Brooklyn. Edwards and Russell have combined for 32. Irving has 10. Every Nets who has played has scored. Nets seem to be frustrated with some of the officiating. Wolves shooting 57 percent from the field. – 9:11 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nets have seen it a lot already this year — Harden drives to the rim, either gets locked up or throws up a wild shot — and doesn’t get the whistle. Same thing happened in final moments of first half after running into KAT. The explosion doesn’t seem the same. He’s now 1-for-8. – 9:11 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
#Nets down 72-62 at the break after allowing .568 shooting. James Harden has just seven points on 1-of-8 shooting. Meanwhile, D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards have combined for 32 points for the #Timberwolves. – 9:11 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
KAT smothers Harden on the final drive of the half. Wolves shot 19 FTs to Nets 8. Can’t complain about the calls so far (even if there have been a couple shaky ones)
Russell with 17, Edwards with 15. – 9:09 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Frustration showing for Harden — he was talking to Jarred Vanderbilt for a few seconds before the ball went back in — then he gave him a little push and got T’d up. Harden is 0-for-6 in 17 minutes. Nets getting run up and down the floor in the first half. – 9:06 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Vando has riled up Harden. Just drew a T for a shove. Wolves have really gotten after the Nets in this 2nd quarter. – 9:05 PM

James Harden with a pair of shoves on Jared Vanderbilt. He earned the T there. – 9:05 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
I’ve really come to enjoy some of D’Angelo Russell’s little crafts.
One of my favorites: When he’s bringing the ball up the floor and waves a teammate to “come get me” (set a screen), that actually means fake a step to screen and go backdoor. – 9:01 PM

Bad defense hangover from the Atlanta game — the Wolves’ 2nd-worst defensive game of the season. Nets hang 36 on the Wolves in the first.

A rotation tweak for the Wolves tonight: Per usual, D’Angelo Russell was the first sub out, but Jaylen Nowell came in for him, not Malik Beasley, like normal.
In part, I’m sure, because Beverley is out — and they need a PG. But also, Nowell’s role keeps growing. – 8:26 PM

With his second three-pointer tonight, @Anthony Edwards has eclipsed 300 career threes. At 20y-171d, Edwards becomes the youngest player in @NBA history to reach 300 three-pointers. He passes Luka Dončić, who sank his 300th career triple on 2/21/20 in Orlando at age 20y-358d. – 8:25 PM

Steve Nash said Joe Harris is steadily doing more and more, but isn’t ready for high intensity yet. Noncommittal when asked if it looks like a return post-All Star break. #nets4:36 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Nash said Joe Harris is progressing. I asked if there’s been setbacks his ankle rehab: “Yeah there’s been some awareness (of it) and irritation. He’s been doing a tug-of-war between making progress and then having some irritation. It’s really a process thats been tricky.” #nets4:25 PM
