D-Rose, Alpha of the Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves took down the Utah Jazz in a tightly contested match 128-125.

The 2011 and youngest ever MVP Derrick Rose hits a career high 50 points going 19-31 from the field. This is his first ever start in a Timberwolves jersey as he was usually deployed as a sixth-man last season.


Rose also played 41 minutes, the most on the team as Jimmy Butler sits out pending his forced transfer request. Karl Anthony Towns provided a monstrous double double with 28 points and 16 rebounds. Rose also hit 4-of-7 from beyond the arc. The Chicago native took over the game as he sank both game-winning free-throws along with two clutch basket in the last minute before ending his historic night with a block on Dante Exum’s attempt.


The Jazz had Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert taking over putting up 26 and 22 points respectively. Australian sharpshooter Joe Ingles was unusually off today as he only dropped one out of six from the three point line.
