Hornets 95, Wolves 89 – Not the time traveling you want to do

I kept waiting for Jonny Flynn to check in. I’m not even trying to be a smartass here. That game felt a lot like last season and it was a malaise over the team that I just didn’t want any part of anymore. Maybe that’s why it’s taken a day for me to sit down […]

Lakers 105, Timberwolves 102: Welp…

I waited to post this recap of the game last night because I didn’t know the outcome of the game until a short time ago. While I know there is plenty to talk about with Derrick being a scratch starter for Love right before tip-off or Pekovic being a monster against two twin towers from […]

Kevin Love meets K-Love the Octopus

Yesterday, Kevin Love went to Sea Life at the Mall of America to introduce himself and the world to K-Love the Octopus. According to the press release from the team: K-Love the octopus will be joining the team of 10,000 sea creatures from SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium at Mall of America. The octopuswill be released into his new tank […]

Wolves 106, Blazers 94: Where is Wes Johnson and what have you done with him?

Do you remember the Wolves-Lakers game in March from last season? The Wolves didn’t know it yet, but they were in the early stages of a 15-game losing streak to end the season and clinch the worst record in the NBA. What stood out that game was Wes Johnson went off against Kobe Bryant. He […]

Wolves 95, Clippers 94: Strategery

Apologize for the late recap post but we had some issues with the site yesterday, and I’m just now able to get it posted. As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been absent from recap duties and other postings on this site the past week because I was out of town. I went […]

Lakers 104, Wolves 85: Shaken, not stirred

These things happen. We can’t all be Kobe Bryant. In fact, these are the nights we wonder how Kobe Bryant is Kobe Bryant. He should’ve been in bed like the rest of us; wallowing in self pity and reaching for that second pint of ice cream. Instead, there he was, pirouetting into those patented fadeaways, […]

Wolves 109, Clippers 97: Night of the Living Potential

“Hanging around. Hanging around. Kid’s got alligator blood. Can’t get rid of him.” – Teddy KGB. It starts with a run. The Clippers came out of halftime, inexplicably only up three points and looking to put this game away early. A layup from Randy Foye drops in. Blake Griffin hits a jump shot. Randy Foye […]

Mid-season 3-on-3: the future is calling

The regular season is just a tick over halfway done. Almost miraculously, your Timberwolves have won as many times in 33 games as they did all of last year. They have players that do incredible things, players that people enjoy watching. It seems possible that they may actually be competing for a playoff spot as […]

Puppy Breath and… Nutmeg?

In last night’s Rising Stars game, Ricky Rubio put on a passing display that had the internets a blazing. He also went 5-hole against DeMarcus Cousins before finding Blake Griffin on the alley-oop. Big ups to Derrick Williams for not trying to Greg Monroe the end of this play. There was also this pass to […]

Wolves 100, Jazz 98: Finding your role within chaos

That was the weirdest and most fun comeback I’ve experienced in a long time. There was no reason for the Wolves to win that game last night and maybe that’s why the comeback was so fun. Everything was working against Minnesota for so long in that game, that the comeback never really seemed real to […]
