While we haven’t seen as many under-the-radar first-year players getting more looks down the stretch, we’re still seeing solid performances from rookies who are playing in some surprisingly meaningful games at this point in the schedule. Let’s take a look at his answer:
Asked Anthony Edwards why the Timberwolves have been playing better in 4th quarters recently compared to the beginning of the season.
With starting point guard De’Aaron Fox out for at least two weeks due to the league’s health and safety protocols, Tyrese Haliburton got pushed into the starting lineup this week and certainly made the most of it. Okoro’s defense has earned him praise all season, and he could develop into a player who could make an All-Defensive team at some point in his career, but he needs to be shooting better than 28.9 percent from deep, and ranking in the 35th percentile in shots at the rim.
