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.
Teague delivered 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Teague was highly productive across the stat sheet, helping make up for some of the scoring shortfall brought about by a drop in production on the part of both Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler. The veteran point guard often took the reins of the offense when Butler was sidelined for an extended period with a knee injury during the latter portion of the season, and he surprisingly displayed a similar level of usage Sunday despite the starting five being at full health. Teague will look to continue producing at a similar clip in Game 2 on Wednesday.
