Karl-Anthony Towns after tonight’s loss to the Orlando Magic:

“Every game is a must-win for us, especially who we’re fighting for and who we’re having to fight against… Like I told them, if we’re gonna play that way, we don’t deserve to win.”

Full quote… – 10:34 PM

Anthony Edwards on his knee: “I felt wonderful. I know we lost but as far individually, my game, my confidence in my knee, everything feels great right now. I was pretty happy out there.”

Said he feels “perfect” headed into a game he really wants to play vs. Miami tomorrow. – 10:24 PM

D’Angelo Russell on the Wolves approach tonight:

“Just not treating teams we feel like we’re supposed to beat like that. I think we kinda disrespect teams in our approach. Our approach would be a little different with a better team. So treat any team like they’re the best team.” – 9:41 PM

In the walk-off with Dante Marchitelli, Mo Bamba dedicates his game (27 points, 12 boards, 2 blocks, 10/15 FGs) to his late half-brother, Ibrahim Johnson. Today would have been Johnson’s 28th birthday. – 9:24 PM

Kevin O’[email protected]

Home on a Friday night watching college basketball and the Orlando Magic. Mo Bamba with 27 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blocks, and multiple huge plays down the stretch. Life is good. – 9:21 PM

Bad loss for Wolves in Orlando. Missed 18 straight 3s to close the game. Poor shot selection. Lax defense. No time to pout. Miami tomorrow night. – 9:20 PM

And yet, Mo Bamba outplays KAT late and the Magic are going to get a win.

What a horrible loss by the T’Wolves. They had an opportunity and they botched it. – 9:17 PM

Evan [email protected]

listen I don’t wanna be a downer (lol) but you can sort of see the contours of what’s gonna happen, right? Fultz is gonna hit his minutes limit, come out of the game, the Magic’s offense will die, and the Wolves win a close one – 8:54 PM

Cody [email protected]

The Magic are now up 105-95 with 8:54 left, their largest lead of the night. Amway Center is as loud as I’ve heard it all season long tonight. – 8:54 PM
