Nets guarding KAT with single coverage. Usually a sign that the Wolves will hammer it to KAT in the post.
They posted KAT up first two possessions, then went to him in PnR next two possessions. – 8:13 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Karl Towns is going right at Day’Ron Sharpe in the post. Big test for the rook. – 8:11 PM

Similar to the Nets game, the Spurs are attacking, but struggling to finish inside again.
They made just 45% of their paint shots in the first half.
Winning jumpers, but barely. pic.twitter.com/dTLExYoA2R8:06 PM

Tonight’s @PrizePicks for Wolves-Nets
DLo over 18.5 pts
– should attack BKN’s switches + drop coverage
Vando over over 9.0 rebs
– should handle BKN’s size well
Harden under 8.0 rebs
– i guess he averages 8 per, but that feels high
Edwards over 3.0 FTs made
– refs!!!! – 7:41 PM

Steve Nash said Joe Harris is steadily doing more and more, but isn’t ready for high intensity yet. Noncommittal when asked if it looks like a return post-All Star break. #nets4:36 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Nash said Joe Harris is progressing. I asked if there’s been setbacks his ankle rehab: “Yeah there’s been some awareness (of it) and irritation. He’s been doing a tug-of-war between making progress and then having some irritation. It’s really a process thats been tricky.” #nets4:25 PM
