Rajon Rondo had the Celtics machine rolling, while the Wolves sputtered in Game 2 of a back-to-back.

Wolves played pretty hard but 14 of 30 from the charity stripe is pathetic for a pro team.

when love turns the ball over or complains to a ref that he's just been fouled, he just jogs back to the defensive zone leaving his team mates in a 4 on 5 situation. i'm surprised adelman is putting up with this.

Hate the Celtics. Wolves will get them next time.

I like the wolves effort but how can you win missing 16 free throws out of 30. Wow!

Yeah, I understand about defense and am a firm believer in it but 14-30 at the stripe? Its not the first game lost at the free throw line. Any of them bonus? Hurts even more.

If a team as young as the Wolves has trouble with back to backs, it is obvious that games on consecutive nights in different cities is not basketball-friendly. I think that's one reason why the playoffs are so enjoyable: there's always one day off between games and occasionally two. I realize that all teams must deal with the idiotic NBA schedule, but I will whine one more time: the season is too long, there are too many back to backs and worse, and both the players and fans suffer as a result. This is why AK thrived in Russian ball last year and came into camp feeling like a deer. His body wasn't being broken down by the broken NBA schedule that seems to be entrenched until we are invaded my aliens. AK's already suffering and probably feels like a pack mule, and we are barely into December. He is far from alone in being beaten down already. More players will fall along the ways, and some will suffer serious injuries that would be less likely to happen if the season was shorter and there were no back to backs. Okay, I feel better now. I like our team. Bad night. Good first half. Looking forward to watching Friday's game.

14 of 30 would be bad for a junior high team

How can you call this professional basketball when the Wolves shoot 14 out of 30 from the free throw line? Also, notice a total of only 13 turnovers, with Love and Barea owning 9 of them. Maybe they should give the ball up once in a while.
