I won't pin this loss on an individual -- but, I think we have seen enough of both Webster and Johnson. Awful.

First of all, the coaching was just garbage. The timing of Adelman benching Rubio disrupted all momentum. And Martell Webster, are you kidding me? First of all, the guy can't hit a shot to save his life, and the last play of the game? WOW!! That was pitiful.

Martell Webster, I hope getting into double digits was worth it. Shake my head. (Rubio's reaction was priceless)

Webster's play was pathetic... be aware of the time and the situation you're playing in. Pull up at the 3 pt. line and take a chance to tie the game. 2 pts. does nothing for you! Incredible. Too bad Luke missed the easy layup because that killed us too. It was great watching the "I can't hit the side of a barn" Corey Brewer playing against his counter-part in Wes Johnson. Johnson has no more game than Brewer... it was like watching the same player on two different teams. What would our chances be if we had two rookies on the floor and Malcom Lee at PG. How do we not beat the Nuggets tonight??.... they had no one on the floor other than Harrington and we still lost.

Hilarious that people actually thought Webster would be the answer at SG. The guy, by his own admission, cannot move anymore. Can't shoot either. P.S. he's making $5,265,000 this year.

You have a better chance to win a game if you know the score.

A lot of blame to go around on this one: Martell not knowing the score, Luke missing the layup at the end of the game, Tolliver being just awful in the first half, Rubio not being able to outplay their 3rd string point guard in the fourth quarter and OT, and no one trying to find B-Easy in the fourth quarter or OT despite him being the only T-wolve that could seem to score consistently in that time frame. And Darko managing to come up with another "injury" didn't help either.

Just one questions? Where was Derrick William and JJ Barea or PEK in overtime... MAYBE that would have made a difference.. considering NOBODY scored for 3 mins of overtime.. smh

Pek sprained his ankle bro
