On the other side of the court, the Minnesota Timberwolves will be eager to regroup and narrow the series deficit to 2-1 with a win at home in Game 3. In their Game 2 loss, rookie sensation Anthony Edwards was the bright spot for Minnesota, leading the team with an impressive 41 points. Despite shooting a respectable 50.6% from the field, the Timberwolves struggled with turnovers, committing three more than the Denver Nuggets.

However, they stumbled in the final quarter, allowing the Nuggets to score 35 points and slip away with the win. Minnesota will need to address their turnovers and find a way to sustain their scoring momentum for a full game to have a chance at closing the series gap in Game 3 against a tough Denver team.
