Wolves 102, Bobcats 90: K.I.S.S.

Keep it simple, stupid. It’s funny how basic professional basketball can be sometimes. You’re bigger and stronger than the opponent so you pound it inside and get easy points. You have a problem with turnovers so you just stay more patient and stop giving the ball to the other team. You’re facing the worst team […]

Still Wilding

One more note on Pekovic’s recent play. On Thursday, Zach wrote this: One of the most impressive and basic things you see Pek do each time down the floor is he runs as deep into the key as he can, seals the defender to his back and calls for the ball. Many times over the […]

Heat 103, Timberwolves 101: Crawl 'fore you ball

As promised, we were entertained. But with nothing to show for our efforts besides faint praise and yet another moral victory, we have to wonder if anything has actually changed. Our Wolves are still a team with enough recognizable strengths to compete with anyone. Voracious rebounding, accurate shooting and a blistering pace have been the […]

Attempting to analyze the chaos of a fake preseason

BREAKING NEWS: Sources say, Wolves went 2-0 in the preseason against the Bucks. So as we prepare for the Preseason Playoff series against the 2-0 Clippers, I thought I would share some notes I made on Wolves players from the two games we just witnessed.

Bucks 94, Wolves 88: Goodbye, Corey. Hello, Wesley.

Now that the Corey Brewer trade demands, or Melo Drama as I like to call it, are over, the Wolves were finally able to get back to some sense of normalcy. With Corey actually gone from the team, it gave us an opportunity to see Wes Johnson in a more defined role. It’s not like […]

76ers 107, Wolves 87: Out of focus

With Hockey Day in full effect on Saturday, it left the local channels blistering with high school, college and professional hockey games while anyone hoping to catch a Timberwolves game against the 76ers with a poorly cropped, low definition broadcast from the Philly side of the telecast world. It shocks me when there are professional […]

The hangover: more thoughts on Timberwolves/Bobcats

Judging from my own reactions and those of my (many) correspondents, this latest Wolves debacle has given us all that awful feeling of waking up from those really significant nightmares. I’m talking about those dreams that leave little remnants of dread shimmering around in your body all through the next day. This game was like […]

Mess with the Bobcat and get the claws or something

No disrespect intended for the Charlotte Bobcats but the Wolves absolutely gave this one away. And it feels really good to say that. I’m not happy the Wolves lost by any means, but I’m extremely happy they were in a position on the road to have a game to put away. I don’t know that […]
