Timberwolves take 2-0 series lead over Suns behind McDaniels' heroics

Posted : 24 April 2024

Jaden McDaniels emerged as the star of the night, recording a playoff career-high 25 points and leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a commanding 105-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns, securing a 2-0 series lead in their first-round matchup. Mike Conley and Rudy Gobert contributed with 18 points each, compensating for Anthony Edwards' limited offensive output as he was contained to just 15 points.


The series now shifts to Phoenix for Game 3 on Friday night, with the Timberwolves holding a 2-0 lead for only the second time in franchise history. Karl-Anthony Towns praised the team's collective effort, highlighting their willingness to make sacrifices for the greater good.


Despite Devin Booker's 20 points and solid contributions from Kevin Durant and Eric Gordon, the Suns struggled to find their offensive rhythm against Minnesota's stifling defense. The trio of Booker, Durant, and Bradley Beal encountered shooting woes, with McDaniels playing a significant role in disrupting their flow.


Minnesota's dominance was evident throughout the game, particularly in the fourth quarter, where they capitalized on Phoenix's defensive lapses and secured a decisive victory. McDaniels showcased maturity amidst physical play, rebounding effectively and maintaining composure despite a brief altercation with Booker.
