On Tuesday night in the NBA In-Season Tournament, Rudy Gobert shined with 17 points, 16 rebounds, and four blocks to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 106-103 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Gobert’s standout performance included a crucial lockdown defense against Chet Holmgren, the second-overall pick in 2022 from Minnesota, during his pro debut in his hometown.
While Gobert’s dominance on both ends of the floor was on full display, reserve Troy Brown Jr. also stood out with 17 points, contributing to the Timberwolves’ win. However, the game was not without adversity, as young star Anthony Edwards suffered an injury after scoring 21 points, leading Minnesota’s inspiring comeback in the third quarter.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up a strong performance for the Thunder with 32 points, but his last-ditch attempt to tie the game at the buzzer fell short, securing the Timberwolves’ hard-fought victory.
As the Timberwolves secured a 3-1 record in the Western Conference Group C, setting them on the path to reach the In-Season Tournament quarterfinals, fans can expect an exciting showdown when they face off against the Utah Jazz next.
