The Minnesota Timberwolves crumbled against the Sacramento Kings Saturday night to the tune of 123-117. The Wolves lead the Kings 31-18 after the first quarter, but proceeded to get molly-whopped over the final three frames by the score of 105-92; truthfully, it wasn’t even that close. This was the 15th time this season that the […]
After an injury to Nemanja Bjelica, reports suggest the Wolves may have found their replacement.
The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the Sacramento Kings 109-105 on Friday night in a game that could be described as anything but pretty.

Today we’re going to talk about the philosophical concept of microcosm. Don’t run away! This stuff is cool, I promise. Or, at least as cool as looking at how a season’s worth of frustration can be contained and reflected in a minute and a half of basketball. Here we go:
The five-game losing streak is no more. And yes, it was snapped against a team now in sole possession of the worst record in the West and just as prone to meltdowns as the Wolves. But as is often said, you have to win the ones you’re supposed to win, and Minnesota won this game […]
Its a bit embarrassing to look back on what I’ve written on home openers of years past and find an optimism that ended up being thoroughly unwarranted.
