What's going on? Everyone, Um, I'm here.
We're gonna have a little Timberwolves Lakers wash party.
Um, so far, it's been an absolute thunderstorm of Anthony Davis.
Hey, is 40 whatever, like 44 points now, um, he is just unbelievable, man, like, every time that he gets the ball, it seems like he's gonna score.
He's hit step back, jump shots.
You know, if he drives to the basket, he's hit post hugs.
He said a couple of threes.
He's just he's I mean, it's Anthony Davis.
You know, um and LeBron is having a great game, too.
Ah, he I think he has 24 11 assists already, but four fouls that he's been involved.
Trouble? Just imagine if he wasn't, but the temple still won't go away.
Um, they're staying in the game.
They're not giving up, which is something I'd like to see because you know, what town is it really having? The best night? Wiggins has been a little quiet, and, um, you know, it's it's it's good to see Kay debates D up stepping up.
Um, if you want to check out at T wolves lead on Twitter.
We've been having live tweets all game.
I think he's had a really quietly good game under.
Like I said, the thunderstorm of Anthony Davis.
Ah, he's been able to get where he wants to on the dribble.
And it's been pretty impressive because he's had a pretty, pretty disappointing rookie year.
If you look a, um if you're a Wolf Strand, you know, like Culver has been pretty disappointing.
Quiet can't shoot at all.
Like he hit a three tonight, though. So that's good.
Yeah, Anthony Davis is the story of the game.
He's He has his new season high.
I mean, he's just he's unbelievable.
So, yeah, it's It's currently 1 16 Wanna wait? Lakers? Um, LeBron.
Another alley oop.
That's another thing that's been happening.
A lot is the Lakers are getting these Pick and roll out the Utes with LeBron Ah, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard, where it's and I said it before the season.
I'm like if you have a pick and roll with LeBron and a athletic big and especially when it's an athletic big with talent like anther gave us, it's it is over, like he's never had a guy like that before in his career, he had Chris Bosch, but Chris Boxes and that kind of player as Ah Shabaz Napier misses a three.
Um, you know, I Davis has been, um, open on a lot of those rolls to the basket to which is a little bit confusing to me, because if it happened so many times, why not? You know, just put someone in front of him if they're going to run that pick and roll, you know when it's coming, because every time Dwight Howard or Anthony Davis has set a pick and roll are set a pick so far, they rolled in the basket and gone for a lob.
So I think that's something that he will should have been watching for a lot earlier, and I think they should continue to watch it now.
Also, attacking LeBron is another good thing.
Um, I think for us to do for the rest of the game because he has four fouls and if you get him that fifth, then maybe he has to sit for a little while this fourth, huh? Wolves down down 10 though.
Ah, Lakers shooting free throws and, like I've been saying, Town has been quiet.
I couldn't get a goal from three.
I think he's one of six.
Um, but Dwight Howard's at the line now There it's 1 19 108 with 7 50 left.
Um, I did like the the Timberwolves third quarter the second half of the third quarter because it was a lot of a lot of Lakers like, just taken over.
LeBron hit a three from God knows how deep.
Ah, he hit another three.
Davis is doing his thing and they just kept scoring and scoring and scoring.
And then the tools just kept fighting.
Kept bringing the back.
Um, it was it was that was refreshing to see.
I got a little delay in the game here.
Um, Coby shooting free throws.
It looks like Joshua Kobe's been pretty good tonight.
Ah, he's missed a few shots, but his games ever predicated on offense.
Ah, he but he's been pretty solid defensively in a very bad defensive game for the Wolves.
Um, a lot of this game, too, has been turnovers.
Ah, where you know, you'll see just sloppy stuff like Wiggins a little bit ago.
Had he pulled up for a jump shot and then thought twice second guess themselves.
Then throw it back to Shabbat Napier.
But Shiva's Napier was three feet behind him, and it wasn't shared a bounce so that it's just been a lot of sloppy play. A lot of turnovers.
Ah, it actually, I'm gonna look up how many turnovers we have tonight.
That's another basket by the Lakers.
It's 1 20 to 1 10 Not looking good.
Ben just said in transition.
The wolves have been awful defensively.
Uh, I I don't know what the cause of that is.
I haven't I mean, the Lakers air one of the hardest seems to guard in that situation.
Here's a Kogi for three.
1 13 1 22 He's He's been improving from the three.
I mean, he's he's doing when he can't Unless LeBron Yep, they tried to do what I said earlier Garden that that pick and roll.
But then they left LeBron open.
So that's the other part of that where you got to be a little scared.
Ah, well, there's a little time out.
I will say thank you to Arthur for the follow Appreciate it.
Um, man, this is a game that the tools, if we could win, would be I mean, every game, obviously.
But like if we if we could stay in this game, that be impressive because it's been so dominant by the Lakers seemingly.
But we're only down 11.
11 is not that much to come back from.
We've done it a couple times this game.
We were down 19 at one point, Um, and came back from that two down.
I think it was, like, six at the end of the third quarter.

Ah, I mean, just like everybody else does.
Ah, a lot of people just like to talk basketball, and I think we really drive that home where we're not talking about, um, all the hypothetical stuff.
Although that is fun.
And at some point, we will get into that stuff.
But a lot of the time now, it's a little dry for content right now and we're just talking basketball.
It's really fun.
It's me and my colleagues from the leads 43 dot com.
Um, but it looks like we're back here, so I'll get back into the game and stop shamelessly self plugging myself.
Yeah, Anthony Davis.
Tonight, 44 points, 32 points in the paint and six for mid range.
All those much Mitterand shots that look beautiful Town Stakes.
The Bull Goes right, Passes out Tough defense by Anthony Davis.
Turn around at the basket.
Knocks it down on Lee Down nine.
Now we can come back in this game.
This this isn't out of reach, no matter how much it seems like it is Danny Green office Serene, open for three.
My God, he came off that screen faded away.
That was, He drilled it.
That was a beautiful shot.
Wiggins, off the screen from towns dribble, handoff towns or Wiggins again turns it over.
And a stupid foul on a Kogi.
Yeah, but couple couple really bad turnovers tonight.
Um, there's been a few that have just been really questionable like that.
We could start over.
I mean, he could have taking us to the basket or just He was off the dribble, handoff from Carl.
He drove in with his left hand and kind of went up, but then tried to swing it back around someone in the corner.
I think it was a Kogi and just threw it super shoot like super soft.
So someone had time to come and get it.
Davis working towns in the post and he gets fouled that was I don't know if that was a foul, but yeah, the Battle of towns and eighties and I Kentucky.
Biggs has been significantly not in my favorite players favor.
So I'm not super happy about that.
44 7 and six for 80 shooting free throws, too.
If he could drop a 50 burger, that'd be the second player to drop 50 on the T Wolves this year.
And you know, there are some defensive things that we've got to clean up.
Um, I looked at our defensive rating and stuff and a bunch of defensive stats for the Bulls before this game, and I realized, like we're middle of the pack in the league and defense right now.
Um, no pun intended the whole pack thing to rules.
That was dumb. I'm sorry.
Yeah, we're about middle of the pack.
I think we're 16th and defensive rating in the league, which is a lot better than I anticipated.
Because you see so many things open up.
When a team can space the floor like Memphis, they had Dillon Brooks kill us.
That one game great shot.
Robert Covington hits a three and a really important spot.
Um, but Dillon Brooks from the Memphis Grizzlies.
I think he hit six threes against us and then that opened up the floor for Jonas Valanciunas.
For guys like that to kind of get shots under the rim.
Brandon Clark as well.
Another foul on towns.
Uh, kind of a bang bang play where Davis is running off a screen and towns kind of left his arm out.
Hit him in the face.
Davis again at the free throw line.
We're just giving him free points at this point.
Gosh, is a three toed the line.
He's just stupidly good uh, M v p chants from the Laker crowd, which isn't really surprising.
I don't know if he's in the M V P running this year.
I mean, he's in the running, but I don't think he's like a serious, serious contender as of now, because I think you're honest and Luca actually are kind of the guys who are taking that up.
Um, James Harden is kind of there, but I don't think he's gonna want it again.
Davis again makes the free throw Wolves down.
13 1 31 1 18 Jeff Teague is actually also had a pretty good game tonight, which on my podcast, that kind of kind of ragged on Jeff Teague a little bit because it was before the benching.
Why is Jordan Bell thinking about shooting? Yes, Pastor Carl Towns again.
This is a three man.
He has been so off tonight.
It's been a weird night for towns he's been.
I think he's a little little affected by the fact that he's getting cooked a little bit by Anthony Davis.
Davis finally misses it Seems like he hasn't missed all night.
Bulls get the board teed off the screen from towns going around.
Dwight Howard goes up in under. Gets fouled.
He traveled. Actually, never mind.
Wow, yeah, T Wolves are not looking to finish this when it looks like, um, great defense by Jordan Bell on that floater by Anthony Davis fit every everything's going.
I think he's got 48 now.
No, he's at 50 Man props the 80 50 point That's crazy.
I've only see or watched a full game of 50 point game a couple times.
They don't happen very often, but like hard in a couple of times staff, when he had like 53 or 54 his career high, Um, towns dropped 56 1 time.
But, you know, I don't I don't think I've seen anyone.
Is this year atleast operate as efficiently as Anthony Davis has been operating? Ah, he's been stupid, Like I've said that a few times already in the stream, But he is just It seems like you can't miss the way that he's doing.
It is, uh, not unorthodox, but it's just it's it's constant pressure down low.
He's body and dudes down low, making post hooks.
He's hitting running floaters.
I think he has, like, 40 points in the paint tonight, which is ah, problem for the wolves.
Um, but before this gets too rough, I'm gonna hop off.
Uh, symbols are probably gonna end up losing this one now that it's this far away.
It's 1 33 1 18 Right now, I don't think I'm gonna come back from that.
Um, like I said, check out the lead sports movie dot com.
I will see you guys with some more insight on this game tomorrow.
I'm gonna rewatch it and kind of take some notes and see what was what was going wrong with the wolves transition defense. Thanks.
