Grizzlies 91, Wolves 84: We have a little fight in us

Jose Juan Barea, or “JJ” as I like to call him, deserves a lot of praise for the job he’s tried to do since Luke Ridnour joined Ricky Rubio in the trainer’s room. These are unusual minutes for him. In his entire career, he’s played just 30 minutes or more 36 times (counting last night). […]

Suns 114, Wolves 90: It's not what you do, it's the way you do it

Let’s recap the past two games. Jason Smith had 26 points on 16 shots against the Wolves a couple days ago. They lost to a tanking New Orleans team on the road. Monday night, Markieff Morris had 21 points on 15 shots off the bench. The Suns beat the Wolves IN MINNEAPOLIS by 24 points. […]

Hornets 99, Wolves 90: Don't mind us, we just work here

After the loss to the Warriors the other night, a few of the players talked about having pride, learning how to win and leaving a good taste in their mouth at the end of this season that can carry over into next year. There is a certain element of pride in still playing hard even […]

Kings 116, Wolves 108: Go Utah!

I think it’s safe to say the nail in the playoff coffin has been inserted. After the loss to Boston on Friday, the Wolves had a favorable stretch of games in which they could presumably sweep them and end up climbing above .500 and right into the Battle Royale playoff fight. After the first two […]

Wolves 88, Bobcats 83: Been there, bro

You know what’s kind of crazy? Kevin Love finished this game with 40 points and 19 rebounds last night, including 14 in the fourth quarter to close out the worst team in the NBA, and it’s probably his third best game of the week. The level of production and play Love is throwing at our […]

Kevin Love is a new argument this year

The problem with Kevin Love’s numbers is he only gets them because he’s on a bad team. If the Wolves were a team capable of making the playoffs, he wouldn’t grab nearly as many rebounds or score nearly as many points. He’s just a product of nobody else on the team being capable of putting […]

Spurs 116, Wolves 100: The long and weary road is long and weary

This one was not so fun. Game six of the seven-game road trip looked like this team was just tired of being away from the Target Center. The energy was low, the effort was inadequate and the Wolves just seemed like they wanted out of there. I don’t really blame them. Not having Pekovic and […]

Wolves 97, Warriors 93: Mega Love

I’m not the biggest video game nerd in the world, but I used to go nuts over playing Mega Man. There was something so captivating about a guy in a little blue, pixelated suit, trying to shoot Kix cereal at bad guys coming at you from right to left. Maybe I was just a huge […]

Ricky Rubio is all smiles during this injury

Ricky Rubio has been at this a long time. He’s grown up in front of the press due to his professional career beginning when he was 14 years old. He’s as savvy as just about any NBA player when it comes to understanding what the fans and media all want and expect from the stars […]
