The Timberwolves defeated a beleaguered Denver Nuggets team 112-99 on Wednesday night in Denver. The Nuggets were coming off a signature win of sorts, after 132-110 drubbing of the Golden State Warriors on Monday in Denver. The Nuggz team that dominated the league’s best team didn’t show up at the Pepsi Center Wednesday night, at […]
Andrew Wiggins showed out, LeBron James was LeBron James, and the Wolves fell to the champs.
The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Chicago Bulls Sunday afternoon by the score of 117-89, sweeping the season series 2-0. The visiting Bulls’ forces were weakened due to a bought with the injury bug; stars Jimmy Butler (heel) and Dwyane Wade (wrists), as well as role players Nikola Mirotic (back spasms) and Paul Zipser (food poising), […]
The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the New Orleans Pelicans Friday night by the score of 122-106 in another disappointing display of inconsistent effort and putrid defense. Though you wouldn’t know it by the final result, the Wolves, specifically Karl-Anthony Towns, were destroyers of worlds in the first quarter. Towns appeared to take his matchup against […]

Another game, another double-digit lead, and another close call for the Timberwolves, who pulled off a 112-111 win against the Phoenix Suns at the last-second Tuesday night in Phoenix. That’s right, another win for the Wolves in a close game instead of the close losses to which Minnesota fans became so accustomed over the first several […]
