Kyle Anderson when asked what level Anthony Edwards is playing at right now:
“He’s playing like an All-Star starter right now, like one of the best 10 players in the league these last few games. He’s shown it. And he has a higher ceiling, a lot more room to grow. It’s scary. – 11:37 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Rudy Gobert on Anthony Edwards’s defense growing… PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Finch has said repeatedly that the success of this Wolves team will be defined by their ability to play different defensive coverages with Rudy Gobert on the floor (drop) vs. when he’s off (up in coverage).
Asked Rudy how he’s seen that progress over the course of the year PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Rudy Gobert on his 4th qtr (5pts, 6rebs, Grizz only had 2 second-chance points):

Anthony Edwards when asked how patience offensively has helped his game:
“I can’t shoot all the shots… So I’m just pickin em apart at this point.” PM

The Grizzlies’ loss tonight in Minnesota was their 5th straight. They entered with the second longest gap between 5-game losing streaks in the NBA.

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Kenrich Williams is just a winning basketball player.
Most thought Kenny Hustle was just a throw-in on the Steven Adams trade… now he’s a core member who will be a difference maker on the next Thunder playoff team. – 10:08 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Chris Finch on Kyle Anderson: “He just kind of hit the wall physically [in previous games]. That was just a blip. But he’s playing at such a high level for us. That’s so important.” – 10:04 PM

Anderson: 23p, 6a, 3r
Edwards: 25p, 7r, 7a
Russell: 19p, 7r, 7a
Knight: 10 – 9:53 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Former Grizzly Kyle Anderson picks Ja’s pockets, then slings and over-the-shoulder pass to McDaniels for the dunk. Terrific game for Anderson. – 9:49 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Kyle Anderson finds Rudy for the reverse dunk on the lob, which, I think, not coincidentally, leads to Rudy locking-in on D for a big shot contest. DLo grabs the board, finds Anderson in transition for a layup
Anderson is huge for this team – and it’s always in those sneaky ways – 9:35 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
The difference between when Anderson passes to Gobert and when others attempt to is a canyon. – 9:33 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Kyle Anderson with a perfect lob to Gobert for a reverse jam, then with a layup in transition from Edwards and the Wolves are up 14. – 9:32 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Gobert putting his fingerprints on this game in the 4th. – 9:32 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Bucks scored 85 in the first half, 56 in the second to total 141, a high by a Pacers opponent this season.
Giannis with 41-12-6; Jrue Holiday scored 23. Pacers had five guys with 17+, led by Turner’s 24.
Next: Sun. at MEM – 9:24 PM
Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins spoke about Tyre Nichols and the city of Memphis before Friday’s game. PM

– Antetokounmpo 41pts/12reb/6ast
– Jrue Holiday 23pts/9reb/9ast
– Khris Middleton 17pts/4reb/4ast (15 min)
The Bucks have won three straight games. They are now 32-17 on the season. – 9:24 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the end of the third quarter, the @Minnesota Timberwolves lead 87-77.
Edwards is up to 23 points, including 13 in the quarter, approaching his 4th straight 30+ point game (14th of the season). – 9:24 PM
Mike Conley @mconley11
I’ve been at a loss for words over the death of Tyre Nichols. I’m sending love to his family and to the city of Memphis, and I share in your pain over this tragic loss. Justice for Tyre. PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Xavier Tillman has six offensive rebounds and one he tipped out to a teammate — all in less than 9 minutes through 3 quarters.
Feels like the only way the Wolves let this one get away is by not relatively controlling the glass. Last matchup v. MEM they got out rebounded by 30. – 9:23 PM
Chris Paul @CP3
Change is needed at all levels and we all need to do our part. We can’t lose our humanity as a society.
To the Nichols’ family and Memphis community, my heart is with you tonight. – 9:23 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Six offensive rebounds for Xavier Tillman. – 9:21 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Random but interesting numbers, I think…
Wolves per 36 minutes played leaders
Points: Luka Garza, 25.0
Rebounds: Rudy Gobert, 13.6
Assists: Jordan McLaughlin, 8.2
Turnovers: Karl-Anthony Towns, 3.3
Steals: Jordan McLaughlin, 1.9
Blocks: Naz Reid, 2.0
Fouls: Luka Garza, 6.6 – 9:19 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Surely, the Wolves won’t lose a large lead in the second half against the Grizzlies. – 9:13 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Grizzlies currently shooting 1 of 11 on non-rim 2s. Floaters are a big part of their offensive game, and they can’t buy one.
Now, how many of those have led to offensive rebounds… I don’t know. That’s also a big part of their offensive game. – 9:00 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Kyle Anderson shooting 50% from 3 (3-6). Again. It’s been a remarkable shooting season for him. – 8:51 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
D’Angelo Russell with 17 points, 4 boards and 6 assists in the first half – 8:34 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards being a right-handed shooter but arguably a better finisher and passer with his left is one of those little athleticism things that is hard to comprehend, and definitely hard to defend. – 8:33 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Bucks released a statement on Tyre Nichols.
“We are outraged by the deadly beating that Tyre Nichols received from five Memphis police officers. (1/3) – 8:26 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Grizzlies have turned it over 11 times. But Wolves only have 4 points. Missing chances to blow this thing open. – 8:22 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
DLo trying to get the crowd off its feet. Agreed that it’s been too quiet for the start the Wolves are off to. – 8:14 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Naz Reid with a thunderous dunk and then draws a charge on Jaren Jackson Jr. for Jackson’s third foul. – 8:12 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the end of the 1st quarter, the @Minnesota Timberwolves lead 38-31.
Russell leads the way with 12 points on 5-7 shooting, including 2-4 from deep. Tonight marks Russell’s 8th 10+ point 1st quarter of the season.
Anderson is up to 11 points, a season-high for points in a 1st quarter. – 8:08 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Wolves shooting 58 percent, Memphis at 57 percent. Wolves only with 1 turnover, which is an emphasis considering Memphis is so good in transition. This is following just 9 turnovers against New Orleans. – 8:06 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
After missing Monday’s game against the Kings, the Grizzlies All-Star guard is off the injury report before Wednesday’s contest against the Warriors.…8:00 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Grizzlies playing WAY off Kyle Anderson defensively.
Anderson punished that with 11 points in the first 6 minutes by hitting two 3s right away, but also by not settling — he was super intentional about attacking and going immediately off the catch. – 7:57 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Anderson with 9 early points, but he’ll be headed to the bench with 2 fouls once Austin Rivers is able to check in. – 7:54 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
D’Angelo Russell came to play tonight. 8 points, 3 assists in the early going, Wolves open with an 18-10 lead. – 7:48 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Incredible start for D’Angelo Russell. Active everywhere. – 7:47 PM
