Teague collected 17 points, (5-9 FG, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and four assists in a 113-101 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. Teague continues to see monster usage in the absence of Jimmy Butler (trade rumors), as he is playing some great ball in this preseason. That Butler trade may or may not involve Teague, but it impacts Teague so much that it's worth keeping an eye on. Teague may see an increase in usage in Minnesota or land a starting point guard gig for a different team based on that trade, as his value is more in flux than any other player in this draft season. No matter where he ends up, Teague is a great option in the middle rounds and could be a steal if things fall his way in terms of this trade rumor.
Teague tallied 17 points (6-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven assists and four rebounds in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 122-104 loss to the Rockets. Teague played 36 minutes after dislocating his finger in the previous game and appeared untroubled by the injury. The series proved to be an accurate reflection of Teague's season with a range of both good and bad performances. He did not have the impact a lot of people would have hoped for in his first season with the Timberwolves but he remained solid in a number of areas and hopefully, he will be able to build on his efforts next season as the Wolves try to go even deeper into post-season action.
Teague had just two points on 1-of-7 shooting to go with five assists and one rebound in 28 minutes during Monday's 119-100 loss to Houston. Teague was a non-factor Monday, having arguably his worst game of the season. In a complete turnaround from his last effort, Teague just couldn't get anything going in this one as the Wolves fell by 19 points to the Rockets. Although Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Teague momentarily dislocated his finger mid-game, so that could have been the cause for his poor overall performance. The Wolves are now just one game away from elimination and face a must-win game in Houston on Wednesday.
Teague had 23 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 121-105 victory over Houston. Teague, along with a number of other players, found his rhythm Saturday, as the Wolves came away with an impressive victory. Teague was selective with his shots and this paid dividends as he went 9-of-14 from the field on his way to 23 points. The offensive onslaught by Teague and his teammates allowed Karl-Anthony Towns to get some nice looks at the basket and hopefully this trend can continue as the Wolves look to tie things up at 2-2.
Teague contributed eight points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound, one assist, on steal and one block across 19 minutes during Minnesota's 102-82 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Teague racked up four fouls during his modest time on the court, leading to his lowest allotment of minutes this season. The veteran point guard's playing time would have likely been curtailed even if he would have avoided the ref's whistle, however, as head coach Tom Thibodeau went to his bench in the second half with the Timberwolves facing a large deficit. Teague had been much more effective in Game 1 (15 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block), and Minnesota will need a similar caliber of performance from him to have a chance of cutting their current 2-0 series deficit in half on their home floor Saturday night.
