The Wolves get back in action on Sunday afternoon versus the Toronto Raptors and it will be another opportunity for fans to see Josh Okogie dazzle on defense.

In their last game, the team came up just short of a victory, but were down double-digits for the majority of the game. It was Isaiah Cousins’ offense and Okogie’s defense that brought them back, and hopefully others can step up a bit. Look for Keita Bates-Diop to come back strong and remind people that he was the Big-10 Player of the Year.
Okogie will possibly matchup with OG Anunoby, last year’s No. 23 overall pick. Anunoby was a popular pick for Wolves’ fans last season, but the team opted for Justin Patton instead. OG went on to have a productive season for the top-seeded Raptors, while Patton recovered from a broken foot.
Okogie definitely has some Anunoby qualities in his game and it should be interesting watching them trade blows. Many teams are kicking themselves for letting OG slide, but perhaps the Wolves got their guy a year later.
