Timberwolves 103, Heat 91: Shaking puppies in a box


Andrew Wiggins will try to dunk on anybody and it can change the complexion of the game.

Pacers 107, Timberwolves 103: Hypnic jerk


Ricky Rubio sitting out, Zach LaVine as a point guard, going under screens, and hypnic jerks? It’s a Wolves’ “game recap.”

Hornets 104, Timberwolves 95: Last-Second Changes


The Wolves were down 3 starters tonight. Struggles followed partially as a result.

Timberwolves 102, Bulls 93: More like 0-fertime, AMIRITE?


Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio, and Karl-Anthony Towns keep the Wolves perfect on the road.

Timberwolves 95, Denver 78: We don’t need an #OkaforWatch

KAT Nuggets 2

Karl-Anthony Towns played like a star in just his second game as the Wolves beat the Nuggets.

Bucks 98, Timberwolves 84: It's been a fortnight of losses… sort of

Remember that weird game against the Portland Trail Blazers earlier this season? The Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Western Conference powerhouse with some gritty effort and a lot of luck. I don’t want to diminish from what the Wolves did to the Blazers that night, but Portland shot just 17-of-51 (33.3%) on uncontested shots that night. They […]

Wizards 109, Timberwolves 95: I really thought I'd have a blowout recap

Spurs 123, Timberwolves 101: This ain't reality TV

“This ain’t reality TV!” That’s one of the big lines from the movie The Departed, delivered by Jack Nicholson in a bizarre role that both fits, doesn’t fit, and falls everywhere in between. It comes during a scene in which (SPOILER ALERT) the tension surrounding a Boston crime boss, an undercover cop, and a bunch of lackeys […]

Timberwolves 120, Lakers 119: It's just like college… sort of

This was a weird game. It was a fun game. It was a game that showed just exactly where the Minnesota Timberwolves need to be this season while seeing just how dire things are for the Los Angeles Lakers. In a 120-119 win over the Lakers, we saw just how horrendous the Lakers can be and […]
