How salvageable or lost is the cause of Anthony Bennett?

2014-15 Roster Review: Anthony Bennett

Bennett

It’s time to take a look at our latest Roster Review and see how Anthony Bennett’s first season with the Wolves ended up being?

Bennett to miss two weeks, Muhammad done for the season

The Timberwolves’ run of rotten injury luck just got a little bit longer. With the team as close to full strength as they’ve been since the first week of November, a freak injury in Wednesday’s practice will keep Shabazz Muhammad for the remainder of the 2014-15 season. He caught his finger in Andrew Wiggins’ jersey […]

Flip Saunders, Kevin Garnett, and the New Minnesota Youth Movement

Throughout the season, Flip Saunders has told stories to players and media about his early years with the Timberwolves, specifically his memories developing a young, untapped 19-year-old named Kevin Garnett. In some cases, telling such stories could be seen as pointless. There’s no way he told these stories to his title-contending Detroit Pistons squads, filled […]

Rebuilding the Wolves: Vol. 1 or Vol. 11… One of those

It’s safe to say the Minnesota Timberwolves won’t be making the playoffs for the 11th straight season. With a record of 5-29, the Wolves sit just 2.5 games ahead of the New York Knicks and are tied with the Philadelphia 76ers for the second worst record in the NBA. The Knicks have played four more games than […]

Suns 113, Timberwolves 111: The World is Yours

Down two points with 5.5 seconds to go, Thad Young rebounded a missed Isaiah Thomas free throw, pushed the ball up the floor, passed it to Chase Budinger, who darted diagonally across center court from left to right, ultimately finding Andrew Wiggins for a good look from the right wing with the clock winding down to […]

Timberwolves 92, Spurs 121: Memories Can't Wait

(Once upon a time, friend of the program Matt Moore wrote a wonderful post about why the Oklahoma City Thunder fell short against the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs last year. He looked at everything: the departure of James Harden; the perpetually woebegone Scott Brooks; the injury to Serge Ibaka. All of it. And […]

Timberwolves 107, Pacers 89: Happy Birthday, Ricky Rubio!

S/o to the rookies for singing me “happy bday” after a great win against #Pacers. @heslip @glennrob3 @zachlavine8 @22wiggins A video posted by Ricky Rubio (@ruuufio) on Oct 10, 2014 at 8:55pm PDT The poorest effort the Wolves showed all night was at the end of the above video, when the rookies’ version of “Happy Birthday” […]

Wolves Beat Sixers 116-110: A Preseason Recap

Because it’s the preseason, and the actual storyline behind the game itself isn’t actually all that important, we’ll keep this recap short. Despite some poor interior defense, and some equally questionable shot selection, the Timberwolves were able to pull away from the Sixers after a surge in the third quarter.  Also, some veteran 4th quarter […]
