Timberwolves in a zone and that’s not generally something the Raptors thrive against

Nice to see Banton getting some early run with FVV out. He’s been sneaky good recently. Happened to be the odd man out in NOLA with Young entering the rotation, but they missed his energy. Need to find a way to get him out there, even if it’s just for a few mins here and there. – 8:42 PM

At the end of the first quarter, the @Minnesota Timberwolves trail the Raptors 30-23.
Coming off a 39-point performance last night, Towns finished the first quarter with 10 points, shooting 3-of-4 from the field. The 10 points mark his 16th 10+ point first quarter of the season. – 8:40 PM

Raptors 30, Wolves 23 after 1. Doesn’t feel that close.
Toronto was really impressive that quarter. – 8:39 PM

Raptors up 30-23 after a quarter, pretty cool game
Trent’s got 13, KAT’s got 10, some chattering going on, thats for sure – 8:39 PM

Some good stuff from Achiuwa early – the pass to Barnes a few minutes ago, and that last cut to get into the heart of Minnesota’s zone. – 8:35 PM

– Bulls 33-30 DeRozan with 6-2-2- in 9 min. Green with 10…no hoop for Fox to end the quarter. Fox with 14 – 8:35 PM

Trent and Barnes, who went 4-for-25 in New Orleans a couple days ago, hit 8 of their first 9 shots tonight. Question is: does Patrick Beverley get credited with an assist for each of ’em? – 8:31 PM

Kings are 2-1 with Sabonis in the lineup, had a dud against Brooklyn on Monday. Wins were against Min & Was. So far it looks like they’re tuned in for a bounce-back performance, have scored on first 5 possessions. #Bulls8:16 PM

Atlanta knocked down 13 triples in the first half (13-19), marking a season-high for three-pointers in a first half (previously 12, 12/6/21 at MIN). It also ties a season-high for most triples in either half (13, second half, 12/6/21 at MIN). – 8:12 PM

My @PrizePicks for Wolves-Raptors
Give me all the rebounding overs. TOR + MIN are the two worst defensive rebounding teams in the league and both top-4 in offensive rebounding.
– Anunoby over 5.5 rebs
– Barnes over 6.5 rebs
– Trent Jr. over 2.5 rebs
– Vanderbilt over 8.5 rebs – 7:04 PM
