Out muscled and out hustled:Trail Blazers 108, Wolves 98

This is one of those times I wish we were the Knicks. Not for their world renowned Garden, rabidly entitled fan base or sensationalistic coverage, but for Clyde Frazier. Only his effortless effervescence could adequately capture the highs and lows of the Wolves recent play. Not that I’m unappreciative of our man Jim Petersen, who […]

Timberwolves 105, Bobcats 108: Night Falls

Well this game was just a hot mess. On display here were two bad basketball teams playing some unintuitive, unlovely, awfully bad basketball. The Wolves missed more than a third of their free throws. They turned the ball over in crucial situations. Their first half was a listless fiasco. I’ll allow Kurt Rambis to continue: […]

Warriors 108, Wolves 99: Attack of advanced stats and the killer Warriors perimeter

Another game slips through the hands – or paws – of our mighty Wolves. But it allows me to get into the topic of plus/minus, which is sort of fascinating to me. Whenever someone asks me what I think of the plus/minus stat, I always answer that it’s just as useful as points per game […]

Anthony Tolliver taking his talents to the bench

There’s been another entry into the Wolves revolving door of injuries. As Martell Webster and Jonny Flynn make their way back from the mend, down goes Tolliver. Our friend Ray Richardson from the Star Tribune breaks the bad news. Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Tolliver will miss the next 6-8 weeks to recover from a knee […]

Jonny Flynn heading to D-League

As has been long-rumored, Jonny Flynn will put in a rehab stint with the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Flynn will most likely play in both games of the Skyforce’s weekend back-to-back against the Reno Bighorns and the Iowa Energy. Both of those names are amazing. Here is Flynn’s response, according to Jerry Zgoda at the Star-Tribune: […]

Jonny Flynn's Howlin Hip: The Update

According to the Timberwolves, Jonny Flynn had successful hip surgery on Tuesday morning. Here’s the press release in its entirety, you lucky people: Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jonny Flynn underwent successful surgery this morning for a labral tear repair and removal of extra bone to his left hip. The procedure was performed by Dr. Marc Philippon […]

Jonny Flynn Has A Bad Hip Like A Fanny Pack

Uh oh. Looks like Jonny Flynn and my grandma have something in common – a bad hip. So Jonny is going to be sidelined for quite some time. If the early prognosis from Dr. Spears and his sources is correct then a surgery next week and a three to four-month recovery time would have Flynn […]

This Sessions Is Over… Get it? Because His Last Name Is Sessions And He Just Got Traded

A lot of people are not going to believe this but David Kahn did something I like. Meat And Potatoes Of The Trade T’Wolves trade Ramon Sessions (3 years, $12.7m), Ryan Hollins (2 years, $4.8 m) and a future second round pick. Cavaliers trade Sebastian Telfair (1 year, $2.7m) and Delonte West (1 year, $4.5m) […]

War and Rumors of War

We here at A Wolf Among Wolves are not terribly into the rumors and the speculation. After all, by Friday morning we’ll all know who the Wolves drafted, who they traded and just maybe what it all means. At that point all of the pre-draft innuendo won’t much matter. Nonetheless, its obvious that the big […]

Under the Paving Stones, the Beach!

If you’re reading this, you probably already know: for Timberwolves fans, last year was a crusher. You may remember the brief moments of first quarter hope, when the Wolves would manage to resemble a competent, competitive NBA team. Or maybe that hope would sprout late in a game, when the Wolves, trailing by some unholy […]
