Part of the answer to the problem is left chewing his fingernails on the bench the whole game, big tall guy, plays above the rim, shot blocker, re bounder, can score, what's Aldelman problem with this young guy...named Johnson

Look at the lack of comments---- who cares! When is the last time someone stopped you in the morning and asked you "who won the Wolves game"??? Reminds me of going to a rock concert,a lot of noise with very little substance.

It looked like the place was half empty. That must be discouraging for the players. What is discouraging for us fans is 34% shooting... horrendous!

One of the best things about getting Chase back will be hopefully not seeing so much of this tiny 3 guard lineup of Rubio, Luke, and JJ. That was a nightmare mismatch wise on the defensive end. When will Kahn trade one of them for a shooting guard with more size? If they all are so good and deserve regular playing time, then Kahn should be able to get a serviceable to good shooting guard for one of them...

When is the last time anyone has asked anyone about who won the game the next morning for any team ? I've never experienced it.

Johnson needs more practice, not more floor time. He's often not in the right place on the floor on either end. His upside is good but he needs a lot more work with the coaches. There is more to Adelmen's offense than setting a pick and running straight to the rim. He'll get there.

I am so frustrated with this team. they don't do the basics; rebound, free throws. Pek has been very inconsistent lately driving me crazy. Walking back and forth, no defense, missing easy shots. I think the only reliable shooters are the point guards. I wouldn't get rid of any of them. They need a reliable center

MuddyOasis...I think most here including me disagree with your assessment of Johnson.

The Wolves often play great and find a way to lose at the end. That is who and what they are and nothing more than that!
