Derrick Williams 3 for 15 from the field. This guy has not shown any improvement and he is reaching bust territory.

Williams is only 20. It's a little early to give up on him. IMO, he's going to be a good player. If he works hard, he may end up being very good or even great.

This team is no longer worth caring about. Not now. Not forever. Why this organization is even brought up in stadium talks is beyond me. Can L.A. take on another team?

I guess at the end of the day they are still the same losers we've known all these years. Good luck next year with this bunch.

The air is clearly out of the balloon of this team. If this is a try-out for next season, I'm sure Coach Adelman is very unhappy with what he has seen. On a side note, will Wes Johnson ever do anything other than 2-7 and 9 points? Without Rubio, Luke, Love and an injured Pek, this team is lost.

Can they forfeit or postpone the rest of the games? How about asking the other team if they want to pick up sides before the next game?

Without Love and Rubio this is not a team worth watching. They are like the Twins last year without Maurer and Morneau, the Gophers without Mbekwe, the Vikings without Peterson, and the WIld without Gaborik, Injuries have destroyed this season. Wait till next year.

Randolph in the starting lineup and the Pacers lead by how many at halftime ? Not coincidence.

MuddyOasisApr. 17, 1211:39 AM

Keep the thumbs down coming. Randolph is lousy and should not be part of the team next year.

While we're all disappointed, most of us knew that the depth on this team was quite suspect (i.e., nonexistent). As everyone knows, the team was making reasonable progress and in the playoff hunt until Rubio went down. We lost our MVP, our quarterback, and the one and only player who makes other players better. IMO, it's simply unreasonable to expect that the Wolves could play with the Pacers at this point in the season. The latter is a very deep team who will likely end up in the Eastern Conference semi-finals, if not finals.
