Victory in the sprint of the T’Wolves against New York, beaten thanks to 11 points in the fourth period of an Anthony Edwards of 24 overall unleashed in the last eight minutes of the race. He is the protagonist of the partial from 22-9 with which Minnesota closes the challenge, in addition to the 18 and 17 rebounds of Karl-Anthony Towns and the 20 points complete with a triple overtaking at 37 seconds from the siren signed by Malik Beasley. Despite this, however, the T’Wolves always remain last in the West (yes, worse than the Rockets).
Heavy defeat for the Knicks and for the former coach Tom Thibodeau of the day, with New York slipping dangerously in the standings in the East – hooked by the Heat, with Atlanta and Boston immediately behind and the play-in which currently has at least 11 teams for 10 places. The 26 points of Julius Randle are not enough for the guests, who also adds 12 rebounds and 6 assists to his boxscore with 11/20 from the field. Over 20 points also RJ Barrett: there are 23 with three triples and three rebounds, but his jumper of the potential victory over the siren ends up short.
