The Timberwolves played their fourth game in as many nights in Las Vegas Thursday. The second round of the Summer League tournament was a rematch from the team’s first loss in the preliminary round and against the D-League Select team.
Identical to Wednesday’s game, Coach Adelman sent out the following starters to begin the game: Kee Kee Clark, Othyus Jeffers, Shabazz Muhammad, Robbie Hummel, and Chris Johnson. If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it? In case you missed it, I was actually live-tweeting the game over on our resurrected, official Twitter feed. We’ll be doing that a lot more in the future I imagine.
As for the game itself, the Wolves got off to a slow start. Kee Kee Clark was the only player that looked to have his legs with him in the opening few minutes, keeping the team close. Towards the end of the first quarter, the Wolves got sloppy with the ball and allowed the D-League Select to go on a mini-run, closing the quarter with a 25-17 lead.
