Article Summary:

OKLAHOMA CITY – – D’Angelo Russell had 27 points and 12 assists and the Minnesota Timberwolves routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 135-105 on Friday night for their third straight victory.

Lu Dort scored 18 points for the Thunder, who shot just 40% from the field in their third straight loss. “You’ve got to just be patient on him. We’ve got guys that kind of know him a little bit, and they have length, too. That combination I think is what allows us to kind of go back at him a little bit, and I thought our team defense behind the ball was pretty good tonight.”

Edwards hit all five of his 3-pointers and scored 17 points in the first quarter to help the Timberwolves take a 32-28 lead.

Minnesota shot 68% from the field in the first half to take a 73-57 lead at the break.

STAT LINES

Oklahoma City rookie guard Aaron Wiggins is averaging 15.3 points and 5.6 rebounds in his past seven games – all as a starter after beginning the season on the bench.
