For Minnesota, Anthony Edwards scored 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists, D’Angelo Russell scored 19 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals, and Kyle Anderson scored 23 points and 6 assists. Memphis had Ja Morant record a triple-double with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, but the team lost.

Minnesota showed better performance than Memphis little by little from the first quarter. In particular, Anderson scored a total of 19 points with 11 points and 3 assists in the first quarter alone, and Russell also scored a total of 21 points with 12 points and 4 assists. Thanks to the performance of the two, Minnesota finished the first quarter with a 38-31, 7-point lead over Memphis, where Brooks and Morant played hard.

Even in the second quarter, Minnesota’s Naz lead attack broke the opponent’s defense. Reed scored as a roll man after a pick-and-roll play with Russell and also hit a nice dunk in a two-man game against Austin Rivers. However, when Rudy Gobert went in, Minnesota implemented a pattern to save him, resulting in a series of turnovers. As a result, Memphis produced a chasing score and ended the first half with a 53-62, 9-point lead. 안전놀이터

“Ace” Edwards showed his presence in the third quarter. After defending the defensive rebound, Edwards assisted Anderson’s 3-point shot and scored directly. And he helped Nathan Knight’s spot-up 3-pointer and succeeded in direct pull-up 3-pointers. Still, Minnesota performed better with the lead than with Gobert and entered the fourth quarter with an 87-77, 10-point lead.

But when Jackson Jr. got into foul trouble, Gobare started to run around the court like an unbridled colt. After making a cut-in dunk with an off-the-ball movement, Gobert actively entered the paint zone and earned a shooting foul. Soon after, Gobert completely revived by completing the alley-oop play with Anderson.

Above all, Anderson led the team’s offense by alternating roles with Edwards. He helped McDaniels’ quick break score following a steal 1 minute and 40 seconds before the end of the game, and he succeeded in quickly widening the score by 15 points. Afterwards, after winning the rebound competition with Jackson Jr., Gobert took the time to show off a no-look pass. Accordingly, Minnesota defeated Memphis by 111-100, 11 points.
