Dieng scored 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and one assist across 38 minutes during Tuesday's 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers. Dieng led the team in rebounds and was one of only three T-Wolves to score in double-digits, coming away with his second consecutive double-double. He seems unlikely to break out as a scorer anytime soon, but Dieng has pulled down 10.2 rebounds per game over the last 10 outings and continues to be a solid role player for head coach Tom Thibodeau.
Dieng contributed 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two steals, and one block across 34 minutes during Sunday's 117-89 win against the Bulls. Dieng delivered his eighth double-double of the season, putting him one behind the nine he logged as a rookie back in 2013-14. Dieng managed 18 double-doubles as a sophomore before falling down to 15 last year, and the presence of sophomore big man Karl-Anthony Towns has clearly hurt Dieng's ability to grab rebounds despite playing a career-high 32.0 minutes per game.
Dieng totaled 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes during a 115-113 loss to the Heat on Monday. Dieng got back into double figures in scoring after four consecutive single-digit outings that saw him shoot a combined 7-of-26 from the field. The rebounds are there pretty consistently with Dieng, as he is averaging 7.8 rebounds per game so far this season, so if he can reach some consistency on the offensive end, he's a threat for a double-double in every game.
Dieng totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Saturday's 129-109 victory over the Nets. Dieng posted his first double-double since Jan. 6 against the Wizards, while hitting double digits in the scoring column for the fifth time in the last seven contests. Dieng has been terrific on the boards over the last three games in particular, averaging 9.3 rebounds during that stretch. While he naturally takes a back seat to the talented trio of Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine on offense, the 27-year-old remains a strong source of rebounds, steals and blocks in particular.
Dieng totaled 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds and an assist over 26 minutes in Thursday's 104-101 win over the Clippers. Dieng played a solid supporting role on a night when Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins combined to score 64 points on 43 shot attempts. The fourth-year pro's overall usage was slightly down as a result of his teammates' involvement, but he still managed his ninth double-digit scoring effort in the last 10 games. Dieng also remained hot from the field after a disastrous 10-percent shooting night against the Thunder last Friday, and he's now drained 65.6 percent of his 32 shots over the subsequent trio of contests.
