Rockets 142, Timberwolves 130: Math Lab

I feel like I’ve had every possible Wolves-Rockets recap since I started writing for A Wolf Among Wolves in the fall of 2013. Truth is, this is the 5th; they’ve met 14 times over that span. The Wolves are 2-12 overall in those games, and 0-5 in mine. Last night’s 142-130 loss was the craziest yet. […]

Back to Work to Do Your Job: Timberwolves 97, Mavericks 84

After their win at Denver on February 15, the Timberwolves had 8 days off. Only Karl-Anthony Towns had All-Star Weekend obligations, so most of the team had some pure time to relax. On Friday night back at Target Center, they appeared more rested than rusty, beating the Dallas Mavericks by 13 points, 97-84. The Mavs […]

On the Complex and Polarizing Ricky Rubio

Beloved by many and castigated by the rest, Ricky Rubio’s value within the ever-evolving world of the NBA has been endlessly analyzed and debated since his arrival prior to the 2011-12 season. “Can a team win with Rubio as their point guard?” “You know he can’t shoot, right? You need shooters in today’s NBA.” “Sure, […]

Timberwolves Trade Deadline Bonanza Spectacular Extravaganza!!!

Ah, yes, it’s trade deadline season. The time of year when you stare at your phone, refreshing twitter, trying to wade through the convincing fake accounts and random blather of wannabe Wojnarowskis to suss out what the hell is actually happening in the NBA. It’s the time for clearing cap space, future protected (or unprotected) […]

A meeting between POBO Thibs & Coach Thibs

[As most Timberwolves fans know, the team’s President of Basketball Operations is Tom Thibodeau. Their Head Coach is also Tom Thibodeau. These distinct characters that occupy the same body take on very different personalities and don’t always see eye to eye on decisions concerning the team that they work for and manage. What follows is […]

Wolves 112, Denver 99: Rocky Mountain Highlights

The Timberwolves defeated a beleaguered Denver Nuggets team 112-99 on Wednesday night in Denver.

Wolves 117, Bulls 89: Minnesota-Chicago Part ‘Deau

The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Chicago Bulls Sunday afternoon by the score of 117-89, sweeping the season series 2-0. The visiting Bulls’ forces were weakened due to a bought with the injury bug; stars Jimmy Butler (heel) and Dwyane Wade (wrists), as well as role players Nikola Mirotic (back spasms) and Paul Zipser (food poising), […]

Pelicans 122, Wolves 106: “We’ve Got to Fix It.”

The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the New Orleans Pelicans Friday night by the score of 122-106 in another disappointing display of inconsistent effort and putrid defense. Though you wouldn’t know it by the final result, the Wolves, specifically Karl-Anthony Towns, were destroyers of worlds in the first quarter. Towns appeared to take his matchup against […]
