wolves bench sees fewest minutes in nba, limiting offensive output


with the timberwolves’ current roster and coach tom thibodeau’s determination to keep the rotations tight while developing his young starters, the bench is rarely going to be a high-scoring bunch.entering urday’s game with brooklyn at target center, the wolves were at the bottom of the league in minutes played by reserves and in bench scoring per game (21.6). but there are certain things thibodeau wants to see from his bench, whether or not the s s are falling. especially on offense.“the ball movement, that’s important,” thibodeau said. “kris [dunn] can get pressure on the rim with his penetration.”to thibodeau, getting the ball into the paint is important, whether it is with a post-up or with dribble penetration.“i think the utilization of the pick-and-roll is important, particularly with
