Aaron Afflalo was all over the floor Wednesday night. He knocked down 3 three-pointers and scored a game-high 29 points.
Afflalo was efficient, he finished 9-of-14 from the floor, he was also 8-of-9 from the stripe tallying the 29 points.
3. Rubio misses the quadruple-double

Tweet of the Night:
Wolves have a tough time with Kristaps Porzingis. He blocked six shots inside, then brought some authority on the offensive side.
The Wolves (9-16) return to Target Center on Friday night to host the Sacramento Kings.
