Dieng pulled down three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -16 in his 21:33 on the floor.
Nov. 30 10:52 PM PT11:52 PM MT12:52 AM CT1:52 AM ET6:52 GMT14:52 11:52 PM MST1:52 AM EST10:52 UAE07:521:52 ET12:52 AM CTNaN:� - Gorgui Dieng scored 19 points Wednesday on 8-of-13 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 120-102. Dieng pulled down six rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +15 in his 36:32 on the floor. He added four steals. Dieng went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: With Karl-Anthony Towns saddled with foul trouble, Dieng came through with season-high totals in points, assists, steals and minutes in an excellent all-around effort few could have seen coming. It's also one he's unlikely to repeat again for as long as Towns is healthy. Dieng entered the contest with mediocre averages of 5.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and just over 15 minutes per game.

Analysis: The backup center had missed the team's last three games. Dieng only sees about 15-20 minutes per game, so he's not an impact fantasy performer. His return may mean a few less minutes for Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson, though.
Nov. 9 10:27 PM PT11:27 PM MT12:27 AM CT1:27 AM ET6:27 GMT14:27 11:27 PM MST1:27 AM EST10:27 UAE07:271:27 ET12:27 AM CTNaN:� - Gorgui Dieng scored eight points Wednesday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the Golden State Warriors 125-101.

Nov. 6 10:04 PM PT11:04 PM MT12:04 AM CT1:04 AM ET6:04 GMT14:04 11:04 PM MST1:04 AM EST10:04 UAE07:041:04 ET12:04 AM CTNaN:� - Gorgui Dieng scored 15 points Sunday on 3-of-7 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Charlotte Hornets 112-94. Dieng pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 18:47 on the floor.
Analysis: Dieng notched his first double-double of the season by being a force on the glass and at the foul line, where he made 9 of 10 attempts. Those who may have taken a flyer on the 6-foot-11 forward for his shot-blocking skills have been disappointed, though. He's recorded only two rejections through the season's first 10 games.
