On today’s show, we discuss the Minnesota Timberwolves going into Cleveland and handling the Cavs size, unlike the last time these two teams matched up. A crunch time 3 by Karl-Anthony Towns triggered by D’Angelo Russell, Patrick Beverley guarding 7-footers, the bench kick-starting the offense and Jaden McDaniels leveling carry the conversation today.

  • Beating the Cavs (who were without Darius Garland and Caris LeVert) was going to be about managing the bigs
  • Patrick Beverley checking Lauri Markkanen
  • How Karl-Anthony Towns’ game-winner was a product of KAT and DLo slowly learning how to play together in late-game situations
  • The Bench Five providing a much-needed spark in the second quarter that got the starters going in the third quarter
  • Jaden McDaniels clearly leveling up over the past month, and how foul trouble still plagues his overall rhythm
