Cavaliers 125, Wolves 97: A Perfect Storm

The Wolves have played well as of late. The defending champs have not. The stars aligned in this one, just not in the away team’s favor.

Karl-Anthony Towns was fueled by watching the Cavs win

The Cleveland Cavaliers can make you believe, which seems insane.

Love Me Two Times, Baby

Do you think we could ever Love again?

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, Pacers 101: Maurice drops 52

Coming into tonight, the Timberwolves were on a 15 game losing streak. They were on the road, without their best player, their best scorer, their second best scorer, and their best big man.

It’s Trade Day for the Wolves. And while I will miss Kevin Love and his game, I’m very excited about the New Wolves Order. It should be fun.

Ricky Rubio, Hathatha Rignamputsan and the Birth of a New Happy Generation?

If you’re only familiar with Ricky Rubio’s public side — his play on the court, his commercials, the clip of him telling Alexey Shved to change his face and enjoy — you probably think of him as joyous, effervescent, puppy dog-ish.
