Minnesota Timberwolves: The 3 biggest issues for the Wolves so far

The Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled to a 4-11 record. Even with a win over New Orleans on Saturday night, the Wolves have lost 11 of their last 13 games. Put simply, this young team is making too many mistakes and are letting winnable games slip away from them. Although there are some positives to take […] Minnesota Timberwolves: The 3 biggest issues for the Wolves so far - Dunking with Wolves - Dunking with Wolves - A Minnesota Timberwolves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Dane Moore NBA Podcast: No DLo, No KAT, No Problem — The Rubio Game

Photo by Jordan Johnson/NBAE via Without Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and, I guess, Juancho Hernangomez, the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 120-110 on Saturday evening. Jack Borman joined me at Target Center postgame to discuss how exactly the Wolves pulled off a win without their two best players. Why this felt like “The Rubio Game” and how Rubio’s success on Saturday night almost complicates things going forward. Ryan Saunders looking his most comfortable on the sidelines, calling far more plays than when Russell was the...

Inside the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Bland Offensive Strategy

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The Wolves offense has been hugely problematic, so lets diagnose just what is going wrong. When Gersson Rosas arrived in town to run the Minnesota Timberwolves, he opted to install an NFL-style coaching staff with two coordinators. For the defensive side of the ball, David Vanterpool was lured to Minnesota from Portland. Many across the NBA were surprised Minnesota was able to hire him, and he came over to install a drop defensive scheme based on fighting through screens and maintaining interior structure. On the offensive side of the ball,...

Paynt Points: Anthony Edwards And Jaden McDaniels Early Returns

Taking a look at the rookies. Well, it’s fair to say it’s been a tough 2021 so far for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Even with the gritty win over the New Orleans Pelicans, the team still sits at 4 wins and 11 losses for the season. Hopefully, that can change as the season progresses, but for now we need to focus on the little things. Two of those little things are actually extremely big human beings; the rookies Anthony Edwards and Jaden McDaniels. On this episode of Paynt Points, Host Jake Paynting sat down with Canis Hoopus and Hashtag Basketball Draft Connoisseur Tyler...

Wolves 120, Pelicans 110: Minnesota Conquers Mt. Zion

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The sky may no longer be falling in Minneapolis. The Minnesota Timberwolves got the train back on the tracks with a 120-110 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in a crucial, must-win game for Ryan Saunders’s pack. From the jump, the Timberwolves played with more energy, effort, and desperation than the Pelicans came to town with. Much of that can be attributed to Ricky Rubio, who started at point guard for the resting D’Angelo Russell, making life easier for key Timberwolves role players. It was evident that Saunders wanted a more...

Dane Moore NBA Podcast: The Wolves and Logic + Observations From Hawks-Wolves

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Another blowout Minnesota Timberwolves against the Atlanta Hawks got me thinking about how crazy it is that Tom Thibodeau is having more success with the New York Knicks than the Wolves are having without him, despite New York having a far cheaper payroll. So on today’s pod, we get into how the Wolves are just not living up to what their payroll suggests they should be. (Did you know that if you deleted Karl-Anthony Towns, Juancho Hernangomez and Ricky Rubio from the Timberwolves books that the Wolves would still be paying the rest of their...
