Timberwolves and Cavaliers

10/19 Cavaliers @ Timberwolves Rapid Reactions

Final Score: Timberwolves: 131, Cavaliers: 123 Timberwolves: What a night at Target Center. It was an electric atmosphere inside, but also awkward. The night started with Jimmy Butler and Tom Thibodeau being HEAVILY booed. However, those boos quickly became cheers for Butler as he dominated every facet of the game. Wolves get bench production. The …

Timberwolves and Spurs

10/17 Timberwolves @ Spurs Rapid Reactions

Final Score: Spurs: 112, Wolves: 108 Timberwolves Karl-Anthony Towns’ foul trouble hurt Minnesota. Towns was in foul trouble all night for Minnesota.

Tyus Jones

The case for Tyus Jones to start for the Timberwolves

Perhaps it’s a miracle that Tyus Jones is still on the Timberwolves. After reports stating Jones was considering asking for a trade at the end of the season, sweet talker Tom Thibodeau convinced him otherwise. I can only imagine Thibodeau calmly telling the 2015 NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player that he will get more …

Five NBA Stars that won’t be on the same team next year

The NBA landscape is always changing. There was clear evidence of that once again this summer. LeBron headed to the Lakers, Cousins joined Golden State, and Anthony Tolliver returned to Minnesota. This trend seems to be picking up steam in the NBA, rather than losing momentum. Next offseason will provide more changes in the NBA, …
