Last week I was able to catch up with former CSKA Moscow guard and current Minnesota Timberwolves player Alexey Shved after he took on the Golden State Warriors.  He finished the game with nine points and five assists in a Timberwolves loss.  Shved’s game has transitioned well into the NBA with all the open space and fast play.  For the season he’s averaging 10.4 points a game, 3.7 assists, and 2.6 rebounds.
