Since Herb Hill and Austin Croshere don’t get any run on their teams, Ryan Gomes is the only former Friar in the NBA who gets any serious playing time. So, I am going to try to give a little Gomes update after each Timberwolves game.
The Minnesota Timberwolves lost yet again, this time to the Denver Nuggets 90-84. It’s the T-Wolves 8th straight loss, putting their record at 1-8. They keep finding new ways to lose, although they never really get blown out. In the 8 losses, they have lost by an average of 5.8 points.
Ryan Gomes was inserted back into the starting lineup after 4 straight games coming off the bench. The coach continues to shuffle the lineup in an attempt to find a way to win. Rookie Kevin Love (who replaced Gomes as a starter) has also been struggling.
Gomes played a season-high 35 minutes and was 4-10 from the field, netting 12 points. He also pulled down 4 rebounds (2 offensive), had 4 assists, 1 steal, and 2 blocked shots.
Check out the video highlights for the game and see Gomes hit a nice three from the corner, and dish out one of his assists.
Through 8 games, here are Gomes’ averages.
Minnesota’s next game is Wednesday versus the Philadelphia Sixers at 8PM in Minnesota.
