The Minnesota Timberwolves gave a good glimpse of its culture change last night as they thumped the LA Clippers(115-142). Saunder’s team snapped a 13-game losing streak making a franchise record of 26 threes.
Malik Beasley, who arrived from Denver as part of Wednesday’s four team trade, scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his first career double-double. At the top of that, he made a career-best 7 threes in a nearly perfect debut.
Furthermore, Jordan McLaughlin scored a career-high 24 points along with 11 assists as the only availiable point guard. Also, Karl-Anthony Towns, who finished the game with a near triple-double (22p., 13reb., 9as.), got his first win with his team since November.
The Timberwolves lined-up with seven new players in their squad last night. D’Angelo Russel didn’t make his debut due to a right quad contusion.
