Nice heady play by Nate Wolters, and Jason Kidd sure sold it by walking on the court. The coach is skilled in this type of misdirection, though I’m pretty certain Kidd was fooled here, too.
I’d say this is just the preseason for the Timberwolves, but they’re a young team. They probably won’t fall for this again, but they’ll have their share of breakdowns.
This play is also the reason ball-handlers push it just before calling a timeout. No more thinking that extra effort is meaningless.
