• Gorgui Dieng scored 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Blazers.

    Dieng had four turnovers and the crazy thing is that Sam Mitchell has taken a long time to play he and Karl-Anthony Towns (32 minutes) together.  They definitely have enough range offensively to play together, they both pass very well for big men, and defensively they can be molded into an elite big man unit.  Mitchell is basically giving vets minutes and making young guys pay their dues, and as we always have said the year would be tough early and get better as time went on for Dieng.  He has been a top 80-90 value this season in just 21 mpg, so it’s not hard to see where this is going.
