Never enough Naz Reid
When it comes to the Minnesota Timberwolves bench, there are plenty of players who appear to be ready to contribute this season. But none seem to have the ability to seamlessly enter the game and just take over like Timberwolves sixth-man Naz Reid.
Naz Reid led a dominating Timberwolves bench in scoring, which is completely newsworthy all by itself. But that was only scratching the surface of what he brought to this game. Even if you have been a fan of Naz Reid up to this point of his career, this is a brand new chapter of his NBA career.
Reid is more than an offensive spark coming into the game off the bench. He is the full monty, a player who not only jumpstarts the offense but a player who can deliver across the board and help uplift the team while key contributors recharge.
You have to love the way Naz Reid rolls in a game.
More power to the PF role
The Minnesota Timberwolves believe that Naz Reid can be a superb 4 this season, and I think that they are correct. He has a sneaky good perimeter shot, he has the ability to move quickly, and he has a complete arsenal of shots. Best of all, he has the mindset that allows him to plug and play wherever Cach Finch needs him to contribute.
So what did Naz Reid’s stat line look like by the game’s end?
21 minutes | 14 points | 66.7 FG% | 33.3 3PT% | 8 rebounds | 3 assists | 2 steals | (+/-) +10
And so, the Timberwolves enter the 2023-24 NBA season on a very high note.
