Timberwolves bench tactician Tom Thibodeau has put more premium on defense, ​assigning defens​ive ​specialist Jimmy Butler to the opponents​'​ best scorer with helps ​from​ Taj Gibson​ and ​Jeff Teague​. Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins h​ave also ​shown improvement​ on defense​.

​The Wolves overcame a slow start in which they trailed 33-31 after one quarter, but they rallied and took the driver's seat at halftime, 57-43.

​Butler topscored for the Timberwolves with 24 points, Teague ​had ​22​ while​ Towns ​added ​20 with 11 rebounds​.​ Wiggins ​finished with ​17 and Gibson ​tallied ​12.

For the losing Blazers,​ only three players produced double digits led by team captain Damian Lillard with 21 p​oint​s​. Shooting guard CJ McCollum ​had ​18 and Pat Connaughton added ​18 off the bench.

The Wolves will travel to the City of Orlando, Florida to face the Magic on Tuesday night (Wednesday morning RP Time) while the Blazers on the same night will host the Phoenix Suns.

​FASTBREAK. Sunday night was a very good night for Minnesotans because prior to the Wolves​'​ victory​,​ the Minnesota Vikings won against the visiting New Orleans Saints​, ​29-24.
