27% three point shooting; 38% overall field goal percentage. Boy, do we need to acquire a couple of ace shooters before next season. My high school team used to shoot better than that.

Lack of comments show how irrelevant the Wolves have become..Shame, since they had the most promise of our so called professional teams. It is now obvious how much a top notch playmaker like Rubio means to this team. Time to let Johson and a few other busts, driftwood and marginal payers go --, aka Webster, Darko, Tolliver, Miller, and Ellington.

Without Rubio or Ridnour this team is hopeless. I laughed as I watched Barea try to match Steve Nash shot for shot. Barea is the Kmart version of NBA guards. I like what I see out of Malcolm Lee, he can help this team next year. If Adelman is never going to use Darko or Randolph I hope Kahn can find a way to get rid of them.

Rubio won't likely even be back next year until March. This franchise is on ignore in this town once again. No one cares what this team is doing right now.

Its the first time that I've noticed Pekovic giving minimal effort on defense. Sad to see. I thought he was supposed to be one of the hard workers. Maybe he's still fighting injury.

@djm55422, just like how no one cares what the Wild, Vikings, and the Twins are doing because they all are atrocious as well. Also, ACL injuries don't take that long to recover from, Rubio should be back in time for the next season, or at the latest, around Thanksgiving.

We have some house cleaning to do for sure. Kahn is lucky he got his extension when he did. They may as well amnesty Darko. He's done. Won't bother watching this team again until Rubio is back. Jerry/Kent if you guys are still paying attention (and I don't blame ya if you're not) What's the scoop on the Memphis and Jazz picks? Are those picks coming to us next year or not? where do those teams have to be win/loss wise for us to get their pick? Thanks

At least the Wolves face the fact that it is their effort. Go listen to the Twins...they go on about what a great team they are but they can't get any breaks. Go Wolves

Is the number 2 pick overall..Derrick Williams going to be a bust? He may be a role player, but based on the position he was drafted, he should be a studly star.
