Draft pick positioning for sure...that's what that was.

Yup they were tired, looked tired...except for two sets of fresh legs left sitting on the bench..who might have helped, given that Memphis was also tired. wouldn't have hurt to give them a try coach.

The difference in the value of a coach who has an idea was night and day. Hollins took Adelman to the cleaners in that second half. Both teams played the night before. Being tired at their age doesn't cut it with me. Memphis had a plan and was energized by their coach. I believe our coach has reached retirement age as we all know happens in every occupation. No drive or inspiration. The refereeing was awful compared to the game against OKC.

Yeah the refereeing was awful; what else is new. And both teams looked tired and out of synch at times. One big difference for our Timberwolves was the lack of Pekovic. We needed him against Marc Gasol, who basically had his way with us. Also, the Wolves played 7 games in the past 10 days including 3 pairs of back-to-backs and 5 games in the past week including 2 pairs of back-to-backs. The Grizzlies were "one less" in each of these categories: they played 6 games in the past 10 days with 2 pairs of back-to-backs and 4 of the games were this week with only 1 back-to-back. So, our team had more reason to be tired. Also, the caliber of our competition over the past 10 days -- including the Grizzlies themselves -- was higher than what Memphis faced. And we have been re-integrating several previously-injured players. Yeah, yeah, I know I sound like the "excuse computer." But these factors take their toll. Give us a healthy Pek and a bit more spring in a few players' steps, and we win this game. I hope the guys get a good rest today and come back refreshed for a good run against the Celtics on Monday!
