T-Wolves offense was shut out in a loss in Game 2, 124-96
After shocking the world with their Game 1 victory over Memphis, the T-Wolves wanted to impose their will and their big man dominance again in Game 2. Within the first few seconds of the game, Karl Anthony Towns got a quick foul. A few minutes later, Towns had another foul called on him, which made him a bit more passive throughout the half. After a very slow and tightly called first quarter, the offense from both teams picked up.
Anthony Edwards was not much of factor in the half.He hit a couple of mid-range jump shots but that was about. Minnesota was getting out-hustled, out rebounded, and had zero answers with stopping the Grizzles' outside shooting. Edwards finished the half with only nine points.
Things only got worse for the T-Wolves in the second half. Bad sot selections and their key players getting into foul trouble. It looked like the Wolves lost their bite in the third quarter when shots were not going through the net. One of the bright spots in the third was Edwards starting to find his stroke, but it was not enough. The fourth quarter was all JA and crew. They pushed the pace of the game and never let their foot off the gas.
Edwards finished with a quiet 20, while Towns had 15 points and 11 rebounds
