Timberwolves 90, Grizzlies 89: “We aren’t going to lose this game”

“We’re not going to lose this game.” In the NBA, phrases like that are uttered by a team’s leader. In addition, a leader is able to take those words and make them come true, even if it means he has to put the team on his back and willing his team to a victory. That […]

Mavs 100, Wolves 94: We missed you, Ricky Rubio.

While Ricky Rubio was gone – 87 days, 42 games – the Wolves went 6-36, sporting the 4th-worst offense and worst defense (by more than 3 points per 100 possessions) in the NBA over that stretch. There were plenty of injuries to go around and all of them contributed to the slide, but Rubio’s absence […]

76ers 103, Timberwolves 94: Organization and a plan

The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t been putting a great roster on the floor over the last two seasons. It’s been by design and it’s a risky proposition. It’s an idea that I’ve had, along with plenty of Wolves’ fans, when it comes to the rebuilding style of this Minnesota franchise. Strip down the roster, rid it […]

So… Will YOU Boo Kevin Love?

Tomorrow night, a divisive former Timberwolf returns to the Target Center as a visiting player – and not just Mike Miller, the guy whose curious aversion to pulling the trigger on threes during his lone season in Minnesota vexed many observers (including, famously, Steve Aschburner). It’s that other dude – what’s his name? He sometimes has a […]

Wolves 110, Celtics 98: Good point guard play can make games fun

It’s always fun in the Target Center when the Timberwolves play well. Even considering the 7 wins the Wolves had coming into tonight, you have to pick and choose which of those wins can be considered “good” wins. When you factor in the Wolves’ 10-game home losing streak coming into tonight, it makes the sample […]

Report: Timberwolves to sign PG Lorenzo Brown to 10-day deal

Early this morning, ESPN’s Marc Stein made his way to the Twittersphere and broke some news: Word is Wolves plan to sign Grand Rapids PG Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day deal this week, likely in time for Wednesday's game against Boston — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) January 27, 2015 Brown has some experience with the Wolves. […]

Thunder 92, Wolves 84: Vacations

The photo above almost certainly isn’t awe-inspiring to any of you; sure, there are mountains, but they aren’t very close, and there are some unsightly power lines in the way. Nothing about the image screams “vacation” or “good times.” Aesthetically speaking, it’s sort of mundane and dull, the sort of picture only a weirdo like […]

Hornets 105, Wolves 80: Why does Mickey Rourke wear sleeveless T’s?

This isn’t something I normally do, but I was watching that UFC fight night on Fox Sports 1 Sunday night. I’m not a UFC or MMA person. It really doesn’t appeal to me. I used to love boxing and will still watch the big fight cards but I definitely don’t keep up with it like […]

Timberwolves 113, Nuggets 105: Andrew Wiggins is a lightning sword

At a certain point, I feel like I’ve really got to make a conscious effort to pace myself with writing about Andrew Wiggins. Ideally, I’d get to break down every game of his, possession by possession. Like an overzealous father with a camcorder (I guess an iPhone in today’s modernity), I want to show not […]

Suns 110, Timberwolves 99: The winning streak stops at one

I have no idea if this is true or not (I’ll have to ask him about it the next time Phoenix comes to town), but my hypothesis is that a relative of Goran (and Zoran, I guess) Dragic was once attacked and killed by a timberwolf, which is the reason why he seems to bring […]
