That’s a wrap on the Wolves’ 2014-15 season. Let’s check out some highlights.

Pelicans 100, Wolves 88: The joy of competition

For a good month and a half, the Timberwolves have played opponents with a different kind of mindset than they started with. Of course, while the term “tanking” has been thrown around more than “the Wolves could have drafted Steph Curry” chatter, the players on the floor aren’t out there trying to lose. Tonight, we […]

Timberwolves 101, Warriors 110: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to watch a late-season Wolves game, and the wisdom to stick around for Zach LaVine in the fourth quarter

David Thorpe Talks Wiggins and 3-pointers

It still seems worth discussing exactly what that difference is, and that’s largely what this post […]

Kings 116, Timberwolves 111: What you might expect

The Timberwolves played the Kings tonight. The Kings started rebounding demon Reggie Evans in place of the injured DeMarcus Cousins. Zach LaVine, as he’s grown somewhat accustomed to, at least in terms of regularity, stood in as Ricky Rubio’s spot as starting point guard. On top of that, tonight had no Nikola Pekovic, Darren Collison, […]
