The Wolves are a joke. Good teams beat bad teams even if they're on a back to back. The Wolves are nothing more than an average to below average team. So disappointing cause I really thought they were gonna be good this year. Looks like it's just gonna be another typical Wolves season.

A game the Wolves should have won. Pekovic did not play well...should have been on the bench; Brewer....just lay it up..forget the hotdog dunk (which you blew)....Barrera' shot attempt with 20 sec. was something from an elementary league. They stunk up the place !

Where to begin? Rubio forfeited his right to be on the floor in the clutch by being still unable to score. Brewer does nearly everything wrong. Hummel goes all timid with his shot. Shevd shows again he belong back in the ussr. Barea fails again to look beyond himself in the clutch and the team can't hit shots from anywhere, including free throws. Which leads US to pek. 1/4 from the line and 6/15 from inside 7 feet$&&!# c'Mon man. Reload you gotta play like your NBA players.forgive me if I'm all negative. I had to listen tommy enumerate heinson on the Celtic broadcast. Good lord. Calvin, take me away!

Rubio, Pek, Schved, and Berea awful. Not a good team tonight. Still a 500 team at best.

Awful loss. Very frustrating. Why do they settle for jump shots with the game on the line. Ish

Gotta put on your big boy pants, T-Pups. Back-to-back games are a reality in the big leagues. You get paid a lot of money to play two games in two nights. Can't blame the bench for this one, although Barea spends to much time dribbling, leaving little time on the shot clock. 38 percent FG shooting and missed free throws were the difference.

Can't make free throws, no defense and poor shooting. Bench Rubio, who's shooting at a 37% clip and not even getting assists now. Make the whole team stay after practice and shoot free throws. 57% free throws made? What NBA team does that and wins?

Derrick Williams' 3 games since scoring 31 points last week, 13, 14, and 11. All while playing 30 plus minutes per game

I liked it when Moute, Dieng, and Cunningham were on the floor together. Our team is going to be just fine. Losing like they did tonight is part of the steep learning curve, and they deserved to lose. Had they won, they might have thought they can get away with playing like this. Now they know they can't. The future is bright, but the growing pains are a bit painful. Plus, the fellas are tired--not an excuse but a reality. The NBA schedule is a complete travesty, but it's been that way for decades. The game against Portland will be interesting. Go, Wolves!
