Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
A report from the Star Tribune had Tayshaun Prince quoted recently saying that he was surprised that he was Minnesota's starting small forward.
Sam Mitchell has elected to go with Rubio, Wiggins, Prince, Garnett, and Towns as his starting five through the first three games of the season. With Prince & Garnett the Wolves sacrifice some offense, but it's quite clear what they provide on the defensive side of the ball.
It remains to be seen if Prince will hold on to that starting role throughout the season, but it's clear that, that combination is working as a starting group.
Prince knows there will be nights he'll play 10-12 minutes and others where he'll be asked to play 30+ minutes. For Tayshaun, it's all about doing whatever the team needs him to do.
Through three games Prince is averaging 2.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.0 assist in 21.3 minutes per game.
