Gorgui Dieng Records Second Straight Double-Double

dieng

Gorgui Dieng is making the most of his opportunities with the Minnesota Timberwolves as their starting center, Nikola Pekovic, is battling injuries. Gorgui has recorded a double-double in each of the last two games as he has started and played significant minutes. On Sunday against the Kings, Dieng had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 blocks. On Wednesday night against the Mavericks, he had 10 points on 5-5 shooting and 11 rebounds. Both games were wins for the Timberwolves. Gorgui was the reason, and I stand by that statement 100%!

He played 37 minutes on Sunday and 25 minutes on Wednesday. In the previous 8 games before Sunday, Gorgui had played 31 minutes TOTAL. So I think it is becoming clear: let the big man play!

Miss ya Gorgs.
