Boy was Luke terrible in that game. No D at all! That was the game

I bet if you asked Adelman before the game if they were able to limit Batum and Aldridge offensively, they'd have a damn good chance of winning. Too bad the backcourt couldn't defend a mascot.

Love and Pek got exposed down low. They are not athletic enough to score inside against legitimate bigs. If one of the two had some hops, they could be an effective duo against better teams, but with both of them hopless, if no one goes for their pump fakes--and why should they?--it's bad news in the paint. Regarding the backcourt, Luke and Barea were totally outmatched. Personally, I'd like to see more Shved, and I'm intrigued with Lee. Despite the result, it was a pretty intense and entertaining game for a while.

Maybe Adelman can get Ridnour's minutes up to 48 a game even though he is 8 levels below the NBAs best point guards but #1 in minutes played. The Wolves need to fix this ASAP or they will keep losing! Also still no DWill after his 23 & 7 game earlier this week

AK needs to be involved more in the offense again,since Love came back everyone looks timid. Everyone need to move the ball more. The team has suffered for years without a true three point shooter.

What is up with the Timberwolves and their top draft picks. How does the number 2 overall pick from a couple years ago not get off the bench for 2 games. Use this guy dont trade him. He will be a star somewhere else and can be a star for us. We give up too soon on rookie players.

How did our first round, number 2 overall pick Williams do? Kahn wasted yet another draft pick.

We are starting to see a pattern in the most recent games. Play well in the 1st half only to see any lead or good play get washed away by an avalanche of points scored by the opposition in the 2nd half. Denver and Portland ran us off the floor the last two games. All the feel good from a nice start this season is definitely gone now. It looked like we weren't going to dig ourselves a hole this year before we really got this team going when we got everyone healthy. Well ... the losing streak is killing that notion. And, the streak isn't over yet. It seems like quite awhile since we won a game after watching these last 4 games. The first 7 games were fun to watch even though we were losing people throughout that streak. Now that we have more guys back in our rotation ... now we can't win.

Adelman chooses not to play D. Williams. I choose not to follow the T'Wolves until Adelman is gone.

This is nothing more than another patchwork Wolves team. They'd get bounced in the first round if they're lucky enough to make it. Reusse got it right when he included Kahn as a finalist for TOTY award, pointing out the Flynn pick over Curry (they still don't have a pure shooter). I would add what a bust Williams has been as a #2 overall and the star rising that is Cousins. Oh yeah, nice pick at #4 Johnson was. Good stuff.
