Chase Budinger has been cleared for full-contact practice

Chase Budinger cleared to return to full-contact practice. Still no timetable for his return, but obvious step in right direction. #Twolves — Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) December 18, 2013 The Minnesota Timberwolves have been waiting for Chase Budinger to get healthy enough to see if the money committed and the vision of Flip Saunders this offseason […]

Celtics 101, Timberwolves 97: Will you accept quality before production?

This was an annoying loss. There are a couple of go-to scapegoats you could give for this loss. Wolves were on the second night of a road back-to-back and we saw a lot of missed shots that would normally be easy makes. The Wolves were also playing without their second leading scorer and the 16th […]

Timberwolves 101, Grizzlies 93: Playing with the big boys

We went through what the Memphis Grizzlies fans are going through right now. You’re without your best player and other teams are picking on you in the process. This happens because nobody in the NBA cares if you’re injured, sick, or apathetic. Show a weakness and any good team will come through and destroy you […]

Heat 103, Timberwolves 82: As the Crow flies

The game between the Miami Heat and the Minnesota Timberwolves last night turned out to be a disaster on the court. We know the drill. Kevin Love missed the game due to the death of his grandmother (our thoughts are with the Love family during this time) and the Wolves tried to piece together an […]

Thunder 113, Wolves 103: I want a Kevin Durant for Christmas

Tickle Me Elmo can go kick rocks. I want a Kevin Durant for Christmas. How do you get one of those? Are they harder to find than a PS4 right now? Does anybody know where I can get a PS4 and a Kevin Durant right now? I firmly believe Kevin Love is a star in this […]

Pacers 98, Timberwolves 84: Wolves stuck in neutral (it's a car pun)

I feel like every time I write about this matchup between the Wolves and Pacers, I end up with the same recap. This is a terrible matchup for the Wolves. I don’t think they have too many bad match-ups at this point in the roster construction process. Put them against most any team in the […]

Wolves trading Derrick Williams to Kings for Luc Mbah a Moute

Let’s get down to it because there doesn’t need to be some cute introduction here. It’s official. The Wolves have traded Derrick Williams to the Sacramento Kings for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.  No other pieces in the deal, just a straight-up swap of the two players. Let’s dive right into it and look at […]

Rockets 112, Timberwolves 101: I mean… Aaron Brooks had 26 points…

I try to stay pretty measured when I’m talking about basketball for a very egotistical reason: I like being right. I wish I had a nobler quest for discussing basketball but for the most part, I don’t see the point of taking a biased look at the NBA when it could stop you from being […]

Wizards 104, Timberwolves 100: Get. Back. On. Defense.

Check the highlight reel above from Tuesday night’s loss to the Washington Wizards. That’s John Wall and Bradley Beal destroying your beloved Wolves. As I kept looking over stuff from this game, I couldn’t help but keep coming back to the image of Wall and his cohorts ramming the ball into the face of the Wolves […]

Nuggets 117, Timberwolves 113: Seemingly little effort at altitude

I’m not sure what you blame this one on but I do think it was a fascinating game. There’s the altitude issue that we can start with when looking at this game. Honestly, I know it’s a thing that players have to adjust to on the fly but I don’t think it should take away […]
