Nuggets-Timberwolves Grades: Denver comes up clutch again

  • Nuggets Vs Timberwolves Preview Starting Lineups Odds Predictions TV Injuries | NBA 4/5/18

A novel concept, with coach Michael Malone posting the standings on the board for basically the last time after a loss in Toronto. In order to sneak into the Western Conference post season, they will have to extend this win streak to four. Moreover, the Timberwolves rank fourth in offensive efficiency (111.6), while the Nuggets rank 27th in defensive efficiency (109.6).

Butler was technically active and available on Thursday, but did not play against the Denver Nuggets.

The victory moved Denver (44-35) into a tie, record-wise, with Minnesota for the eighth spot with three games remaining.

Pelicans 122, Suns 103: Anthony Davis, Nikola Mirotic and Jrue Holiday each had double-doubles as New Orleans strengthened its playoff position with an easy victory against battered host Phoenix. "But I thought his timing was terrific, his free-throw shooting was not typical of who he is, but overall very good and he was chomping at the bit to go back in so that's a good sign also". But there ain't no coach in the world that can make somebody play hard. "On nights we're not shooting well, we're still playing and still having fun".

With just two days to go to Parliament, it is obvious that the non-confidence motion can not be taken up. CM Chandrababu Naidu who is now in Delhi tour is taking the national capital by storm.

Jaylen Brown scored a career-high 32 points, including a career-best seven 3-pointers, and Greg Monroe had a triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to pace Boston. The Wolves host Memphis on Sunday and then host Denver on Wednesday in the regular-season finale, which could be an elimination game.

"He was the one guy that gave us a physicality and a defense for our perimeter guys", Thibodeau said. "But as big as this is, we have to forget about it". But what remains clear is, "If we win, everything will take care of itself", guard Will Barton said. That's what he does. After watching the Wolves' most recent performances from the sidelines, Butler called out the team's lack of effort.

His biggest takeaway was that his conditioning isn't quite where it needs to be. Teams just do whatever they want against us.

No time for looking back, though. "There's no time to weep". The Timberwolves have tallied three decisive wins against the Lakers this season, winning by at least eight points in all three games, and they are averaging 118 points in those three wins. He proved it Thursday night, and should the Nuggets once again be without injured starting guard Gary Harris (right knee), Harris will get substantial minutes. I want to continue to play. "Just not where it needs to be for him to come back".
