Anthony Edwards was 0-for-8 and finished with 6 points when the Raptors beat the Wolves in Minnesota. 11 points in 10 minutes so far tonight. – 8:02 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
With his third three-pointer of the night, @Anthony Edwards connected on his 200th three of the season, becoming the youngest player in @NBA history to make 200 treys in a single season. – 8:01 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Timberwolves by 8 at second timeout, you’ve got as many points as Barnes and Siakam combined – 8:00 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Timberwolves have 8 turnovers but they also have an 8-point lead. They are pushing it and getting good looks as a result. Edwards has 11, including three threes. – 8:00 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Timberwolves are, to this point, doing a great job limiting Siakam’s touches and space – 7:57 PM

Raptors now have five team fouls in 6:13 – 7:53 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
If the Raptors really wanted to lean into Pride night they’d give out passes to Steamworks.

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors have had a couple real good looks go in and out but offence still hasn’t been humming by any means – 7:48 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The Raptors should seriously consider getting the ball in the hands of the dude who scored 40 points here a couple nights ago. Siakam hasn’t attempted a shot through 4 minutes. – 7:47 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Gary Trent Jr. and Patrick Beverley got through the opening jump ball without getting technicals so we’re already ahead of the first game between these teams this season – 7:40 PM

A Mavs win in Cleveland and a Minnesota loss in Toronto clinches a playoff spot for the Mavs tonight. Mavs at Cavs getting started in a few minutes on BSSW. – 7:01 PM

Chris Finch says Malik Beasley is out tonight, but that he is improving. Finch gave it the “day to day” label, and said he’s “hopeful that he can maybe play on this trip”
Finch says Jaden McDaniels has been cleared to resume basketball activity, and will be reevaluated in a week – 6:11 PM
Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Chris Finch says it’s good to see Pascal Siakam back to his pre-Bubble form. – 6:03 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
There were no new questions asked to Ime Udoka about the availability of Boston players to play in Toronto.
Udoka previously said “if healthy, they can all play”. There is reporting today is that Boston declined to answer vax status questions.
A couple of notes to follow.

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
I’m no high performance expert, but I did watch end of Fred VanVleet’s pre-game workout and he was playing a hard game of 1-on-1 & going well into his bag, including some right-to-left step backs which put a heck of a load on his right knee. Big smiles, good mood, good sign. – 5:13 PM

New ESPN story: Asked in the past 24 hours if their teams are fully vaccinated, the Heat and Bucks said they were. The Celtics and 76ers declined to do so – meaning they could be missing players for road games in a possible first round series with Toronto. espn.com/nba/story/_/id…5:03 PM

125 players in the NBA have taken a shot in 100-or-more pick and rolls this season as the PnR ball-handler.
The most effective player on that list? Jaylen Nowell (tied with Tobias Harris), who has generated 1.08 points per possession as a PnR ball-handler this season. – 3:43 PM
JD Shaw @JShawNBA
Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley will miss the next three games due to a left ankle sprain, per the team. Cleveland ranks 7th in the Eastern Conference standings, trailing the No. 6 seed Raptors by one game with seven games left in the season. – 3:35 PM

Asked Chris Finch yesterday what he needs to do to help D’Angelo Russell get back on track. His answer?
“I think we got to get him in more pick and roll.” – 2:39 PM
