Teague collected 25 points (8-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 122-104 victory over the Bulls. Teague joined the support crew Saturday, leading the team with 25 points. Everyone stepped up to fill the void left by Jimmy Butler (knee), and it looks as though no one player is going to benefit from the additional playing time. Jamal Crawford (19 points on 6-of-11 shooting) also stepped up as the Wolves recorded a much-needed victory. Teague should be called upon to facilitate the offense a bit more, boosting his assists numbers over the final few weeks of the season.
Teague scored 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 120-102 loss to Houston. In his last six games, Teague has been very efficient from the field, sinking at least 50.0 percent of his shots in all six games. The guard is shooting 60.3 percent on 10.5 shots per game during this span. In addition, Teague is averaging 16.3 points during this current run. Beyond his increased scoring, he is also dishing out an average of 8.0 assists in his last six games.
Teague supplied 20 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six assists, three assists and one block across 35 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers. Teague was one of three Timberwolves starters to hit or exceed the 20-point threshold, and he enters the All-Star break having hit the mark in two consecutive contests for the first time all season. The upcoming layoff comes with a bit of bad timing for the nine-year veteran, considering he's drained 61.2 percent of his 49 attempts over his last five games. Teague has shot at least 50.0 percent in seven of his last eight games overall, but given the high-usage profiles of his other first-unit teammates, his scoring contributions are bound to continue fluctuating throughout the balance of the season.
Teague collected 25 points (10-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight assists, and five rebounds in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 126-108 loss to the Rockets. Teague was spectacular and efficient, scoring his 25 points on 15 shot attempts while committing just one turnover. He also played more minutes than anyone in the game besides teammate Andrew Wiggins, who saw 41 minutes despite struggling badly. With Wiggins being so inconsistent, Teague has essentially established himself as the team's third offensive option behind Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns.
Teague totaled 12 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists, three steals and one rebound across 32 minutes in Sunday's 111-106 victory over the Kings. Teague has been frustrating to own, delivering inconsistency on a consistent basis. This is the kind of performance he should be putting up with more regularity, focusing more on distributing and defense than scoring. He has plenty of options around him and the team functions better when he is finding those players in their spots. He still remains a mid-round guard and does not appear to be losing his starting spot anytime soon, especially with the way coach Tom Thibedeau rotates his players.
