Taj Gibson scored 15 points to go with 10 boards on Monday.
He added a 1-1-1 money counter line on 5-of-8 shooting and is inside the top-75 on the season. Coach Thibodeau is going to give his starters all the burn they can handle and will ride Gibson until the wheels fall off. Gorgui Dieng sat this one out with a sprained finger, but wouldn’t have played enough to make a difference anyways. Dieng is still a high upside stash, but for now Gibson remains the player to own in Minnesota.
