Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Shabazz Muhammad is trying to make the best of playing for Minnesota's D-League affiliate, the Iowa Energy and he did just that on Tuesday night in Reno.
Against the Bakersfield Jam, Shabazz guided the Energy to a 133-121 victory.
Shabazz led the way with a game-high 24 points. Here's the rest of an impressive stat line from Bazz.
Shabazz had a number of impressive dunks that included this nasty alley-oop jam!
I watched the majority of the game and it was clear that a lot of Shabazz's success came by putting himself in the best positions. He frequently lost his man and his teammates found him for easy buckets. He also displayed a lot of hustle and energy offensively.
I watched a number of Summer League games a few months back in Las Vegas and we all know that Muhammad was definitely disappointing. Flip did say before he sent Muhammad to the D-League that Shabazz had improved as a player. The Tuesday night game was a small sample size, but it's a nice sign from a player who has struggled to break into Rick Adelman's rotation.
If you'd like to view the entire game, it is available on YouTube.
The Energy will play again on Thursday evening vs. the Springfield Armor. That game will tip at 5:30pmCST and we'll have a recap on Bazz's performance following the final horn. Stay tuned!
