Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

Shabazz is even more worthless with even less upside than seemed to be the case when reading about him minimally after they drafted him. Seemed like he was supposed to have potential. Dude is just awful.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

Good Ricky showed up last night, 11pts/9asts/8rebs/3stls/0tovs in 27 mins (and on 5 shots). He's still terrible around the rim, but if he can just play at a league average overall level, we're always watchable. PEK and KLove are on such a sick tear, somehow we're barely winning at all though.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

It was on NBAtv. Wall played great but as usual did lots of damage in transition iirc.

Wall didn't really play that great. I've never watched him live unit last night hut he just ran suuuper hot from 18-20 feet in the first half. He had a small number of impressive but not that impressive attacks on the basket. I've heard he is special live but not by running around a screen for an18 footer the other team wants you to take.

this^

He's typically quite bad at outside shooting, but ran hot on outside shots we allowed him to take in the first half last night.

Love helped keep us in the game in the first quarter, then we just took over. Cunningham was a key with steals on 3 consecutive possessions and wound up getting 4 steals in the game. Our scrubs played well at the end, probably because Washington put up little resistance.

Tonight, we played mostly well until the scrubs tried to give away a 31 point lead. It was disappointing the we had to put the starters back in to mop up at the end, but it was good to see us pull away once we did.

Love is amazing. 33 points on 17 shots (11-17 FG, 4-6 3s, 7-9 FTs), 15 rebounds, 6 assists and a steal. MVP.

Love was a badass again. Real joy to watch the Wolves beat up inferior teams

PEK leads the league in 2nd chance points per game. Love is 2nd.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

for Pek most of those 2nd chance points are probably off his own missed 2 footers

No. He doesnt get a lot of rebounds off his own misses. He is a great offensive rebounder though.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

Wolves live should just be showing the non-call on non-stop loop like the Zapruder film.

Still pissed. So terrible.

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

Worst call I've ever seen to end an NBA game. Refs literally said, no you cannot have overtime, Dallas wins, goodnight. 2 refs staring at the play and the ball flys upward, how can you not call it? Even if it was all ball, wouldn't the ****ing ball go down, not up???

Re: Minnesota Timberwolves: United We Limp!

Terrible ****ing no-call.

The one where Kobe hacked Ricky at the end of the game last year might have been worse, but wtf

Had great seats to last nights game, 3 rows behind the bench. Pretty enjoyable second half at least, can't believe the no call. Love just stood in the corner in disbelief after that one.

Shabazz looked completely disinterested the entire game, no cheering, no high fives, nothing...

Highlight was getting to hear Pek say "it's ****ing bull****" on the bench after getting hacked repeatedly with no calls.

Nice seats. To bad the highlight was hearing PEK complain rather than seeing the Wolves win in OT.

He is who I told you guys he was. Total waste of a draft pick and total waste of a roster spot. Lousy player and a lousy teammate.
