Donatas Motiejunas Career-High 20 Points vs Timberwolves
Thursday night was a big night for Rockets forward Donatas Motiejunas, who scored a career-high 20 points. He also had six rebounds.
Motiejunas found several ways to score and the Timberwolves did not have an answer for him.
“He was 9 of 11, so efficient,” forward Chandler Parsons said. “He’s such a smart player, doesn’t try to do too much, makes the extra pass, plays so hard. He’s a really good player.”
Motiejunas said he strived to score off passes he handled. The Rockets had a season-high 36 assists in the win.
“It’s fun basketball when we play like that,” Motiejunas said. “I think the way we shared the ball was key.”
