Does the NBA ever critique their own referee crews. These clowns were terrible tonight! I've noticed, and not just in T-Wolves games this year, how horrid the reffing has been.

To me the only player who is playing to win is JJ. On the second quater he got the team back at the game and you sit him down.???We need everyone to play hard and smart. Positive Rubio score some.

Referees were real bad tonight again.

Just not a lot of silver linings to find in the stretch the Wolves are in right now. I have to question Terry Porter's acumen if the game plan included almost 20 shots from Dante Cunningham; that is not a recipe for success. And the lack of athleticism, which I complained mightily about during the offseason's acquisitions, was a huge problem tonight in the form of -21 in fast break points. We're far from lost at 16-19, but Dante and Williams are exhibits A and B on why this team needs KLove more than ever.

I'm not saying the Wolves would have won, but these back to backs and ridiculous scheduling in general do not allow for a fair game. Even the Bulls, who leave it all out on the floor, lose when they play too many games in too short a period of time. If I was a season ticket holder I would be upset. Who wants to see some team that has played three games in four nights come into the Target Center to play a rested Wolves team? (Put your hands down!) As someone who never goes to games, it just irks me. How are you suppose to play one night, get on a plane around midnight, get in to the next city at 2, 3, or 4 A.M. and play that same evening? Okay enough of that. As for our fellas, I think Shved is hitting the rookie wall. He is not getting back on defense and looks tired. Will need to hit the weights and exercise bands pretty hard this summer. We need a three who can shoot more than a two, because IMO, Shved is our two, and he will be a good one. AK is a poor shooter as is anyone else we have at the three. Interestingly, our four, Love, can shoot from outside when healthy, which means that our three doesn't have to. Rubio looks good to me. I think that by the end of the month he is going to be 93.874 percent back. He ALWAYS covers for his teammates and tries to help them defensively in addition to guarding his own man. The Wolves need some help. I do not fault anyone's play or effort; they are simply out-manned. They made a late run but faded. Hang in there everyone.

Blaming the ref's when you lose by 15? Really.

jsestudiosJan. 14, 1311:01 PM

davey that why the lost by 15, Shrev hit a 3 pointer and they call an ofence on him, that would it made it a 5 point game with our momentum?

I blame the Kahnman. Who is he kidding? You bring in Roy with 2 bad knees and expect him to be the 2 gaurd?! Why is Roy still taking a roster spot? Trade him and his salary for a player they can put on the court. He let Jamal Crawford sign with the Clippers while he was wasting time on RFA Batum. After he is fired this season, people will come to agree with the national press; Kahn is the worst GM in NBA and possibly all of sports.

I liked Shved's response when they called the foul on him for kicking his legs out on the three. He walked up to the ref and said, "I have a question." I don't know what else he said, but what a great way to start a conversation with a ref. I hope Love will learn from him.

wayne5040, Jamal is just tearing it up this year! He would look good in a Wolves uniform. We definitely need some talented, athletic ballers.
