Bolmaro’s Timberwolves lost
In the 11 minutes he was on the court in his second start, Bolmaro had two rebounds and a steal. This last one was the most outstanding play of the Cordovan in the match. With a very good defensive reading, he cut a ball in his own field and led a counterattack, which unfortunately D’Angelo Russell could not materialize from the three-point line. The Argentine forward, who could not take a field shot, left in the second quarter and did not enter more.
Although the first quarter had ended Minnesota by one point and the game was close, in the second there was a break in favor of the Mavericks (27-15), which allowed him to make a difference that was maintained until the end. Dallas ended up leading by 12.
Bolmaro’s Timberwolves, who are 9th in the Western Conference (15 wins and 16 losses), play again this Wednesday, against Utah Jazz, at 23 (Argentine time).
