Jets daily draft nugget: Everybody knows they need pass-rushing help, but it'll be tough to find one. They have no picks in the second round and the overall depth in this draft class is "terrible," according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. He said LSU OLB Arden Key, once considered a first-round prospect, is worth "a roll of the dice in the third round." The Jets have the eighth pick in the third round (72 overall).

The Timberwolves brought Minnesota its first playoff basketball win since 2004. KAT on feeding off the fans energy in Target Center: "When you have fan support like that behind you, anything's possible. It's just humbling to see, knowing fans can be that elated, ecstatic, loving toward us, but just to see them buy into us that much, it's amazing."

KAT with high praise for Andrew Wiggins, who is leading the Timberwolves in scoring in the playoffs: "That's who he is. A lot of people doubt him and everything and he don't hear all the chatter and everything. He goes straight to the gym, he works on his craft every day. He's a tremendous worker and he goes in there every day and does his job. Regardless of the situation, he knows when his name is called, he'll hit those shots. We all have that same confidence in him."

Karl Anthony Towns exploded for a series high 18 points after not attempting a single shot in the first quarter. The third-year center noted how remaining patient through this rough patch would lead to a big night: "I think it is a sense of patience for a while. First quarter, I don't think I shot a shot so I'm just letting the game come to me naturally instead of trying to rush and find shots. And then shots find me. Teammates were amazing. Jeff was out there balling, Derrick, Jimmy...Andrew. Everyone was just doing their job and games like that, the ball just seems to find me sometimes."

Derrick Rose on what led to the Timberwolves flurry of 3-pointers (15), which included 10 in the second half: "We've got to adjust. They're giving us these shots so we have to make sure that we hit them. That's the playoffs. You adjust every game. You adjust every two games. It depends on the coach, the style of play and tonight we pushed the ball a little bit (faster)."
