Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Career night from deep

Beasley notched 23 points (8-19 FG, 7-13 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 142-115 win over the Clippers.

Making his Timberwolves debut after being acquired from Denver earlier in the week, Beasley didn't take long to make an impact for his new squad. He drew the start at shooting guard and knocked down seven triples, setting a new career high in the category. It's worth noting that D'Angelo Russell (quadriceps) was missing from this contest, so Beasley probably can't be counted on to see this volume of shot attempts -- or converted as efficiently -- once the higher-usage option in Russell is worked into the mix. That said, Beasley looks like he'll have a clear path to big minutes, which should be enough to give him value in 12-team leagues for fantasy managers looking for aid in the form of points and three-pointers.
