Taj Gibson scored 12 points, pulled down seven rebounds and blocked one shot in 39 minutes of action on Thursday night.
It was a lackluster outing for Gibson, who was coming off back-to-back games where he exploded for 20 points or more. He’s not much of a scorer or a leader, so this game is more in his zone. That said, Andrew Wiggins (ankle), Jeff Teague (knee) and Tyus Jones (finger) are all ailing and the Timberwolves will get all the scoring help they can get. Hopefully, Gibson will be able to rise to the occasion and deliver.
