Wolves C Gorgui Dieng struggled to defend DeMarcus Cousins on Saturday, but he still finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes.
When Flip Saunders was asked before the game what his goal for Dieng would be, in a tough matchup with Cousins, he replied, "Survival." That sounds about right, and the second-year big man did a serviceable job, especially since the Wolves deployed Anthony Bennett at PF alongside him. Nikola Pekovic isn't expected back until after Thanksgiving, leaving Dieng with another unimpeded start on Wednesday. Nov 22 - 11:22 PM
