Next five games: Thunder, Nets, Magic, Clippers, Lakers

Well, another blown game in Denver. Goodness this is a terrible start to the season. Good to see Towns back at it. Surprisingly, Dunn looked ok. If the Wolves are going to try to make the playoffs, he needs to be a solid player off the bench because the bench is bad (of course). 

The Wolves can beat the Thunder, Nets, Magic, and the Lakers. Hopefully they can get at least 2 of those. Is 3 of 4 unrealistic? They'll lose to the Clippers, but 3 and 2 would be good for their confidence. 

I am gladly soaking in all of Lavine's good games. He seems to be legitimately getting the game of basketball (just please don't put him back at PG). Happy to be wrong about him if this continues.

Atrocious start! Man...

I just keep telling myself that last year they started 8-8, Mitchell was a coach of the year candidate, the Wolves were playoff bound....

And then they lost 9 of 10 games

Hopefully this is the opposite happening. But for this team to play well they have to really pick up the pace and start moving the ball. This isn't a half court team and 6 assists from your entire starting lineup as witnessed on Saturday is unacceptable.

6 assists from the starting lineup? Gross. I missed the OKC game...what the hell happened?

I was at the Denver game. The 3rd quarter collapse was just sad. So was the crowd for that matter. 2nd home game of the season and the squad looked uninspired and like they were going through the motions. It's like these guys get off to good starts and feel all good about themselves, then the other team steps up the intensity and just jumps us in the 2nd half. The Denver vets (Jameer, Wilson, Gallo) really controlled the 2nd half and imposed their savvy and will more than anything else. Young team, growing plains, may be good for the long-term blah blah blah but still 1-4 is bad. Especially when looking at the teams we have played. We basically whupped a d-league team and are 0-4 against a bunch of more or less average teams.

Bjelica = Shved. I have no faith. THEN I read The Great Britt Robson's article, and that only reinforced by position.

We need tRicky. a Rookie PG with a young team is not a winning formula in the NBA. No tRicky aside, the rest of the squad has been disappointing. The bench. I thought Rush and Aldrich were going to be fantastic bench acquisitions. So far they are both complete garbage. It's early. Rush may be washed tho? He looked like he couldn't even defend WallyWorld on Thursday. And Black Hole Bazzy hasn't seemed to have changed for the better.

Some of this stuff will probably look knee-jerk in hindsight, but this is where we are right now. At Brooklyn tomorrow lets get it. They SHOULD get that W. Show us something, boys.

Also, Area 21 (KG's little show on TNT NBA nights) owns. Please tell me you saw it, with Sheed as his guest, DaddyFatSax.

Haha, touche'! My 20 lb Pug Mix is more effective in driveway ball than Rush has been off the bench. Nothing like watching a corner 3 slam against the side of the backboard when shot by your specialist. I think he will prove effective in time. I will also point out that Chase Budinger is available if we need shooting. It seems like Bonk likes Rush the way I liked Chase.

I'm not planning on getting too political, but man: what a ****ty start in the day: the Wolves lost again & now this... seriously? What a ****ty, ****ty day...








(I really hate, that popularism is growing world wide (also here in Switzerland) & I just hope, history won't repeat itself...)

Tyus, B-Jelly and Gorgui has been the only bright spots this year for me. I hope the team gets better because I am planning going to finally see a Twolves home game next year in Jan when they have almost back to backs with the Mavs and Jazz but if they have a horrible record then I might not waste my vacation days on them.

So far all my expectation have been crushed, and I wasn't even hoping for the playoffs.

Rush couldn't miss in the preseason, but I am not even sure he is alive anymore.

Rubio is hurt, but the bright spot is, it doesn't look like Dunn will steal his job!

Our defense is still awful.

Does Thibs even know what adjustments are?

What the hell is Cole doing out there?

Why doesn't Shabazz post up anymore?

Yikes. Yikes White America. Yikes Timberwolves. It's f ucking all bad right now.

Cyco, what about Lavine? He is playing well, generally (at least offensively). I also just have never seen a legitimate way for ShaBEAST to be a core player. I hope he improves but goodness he still doesn't even look like he knows what he is doing.

Lavine, Wiggins and Towns have been great in the first half, but disappear in the 2nd half. Though I noticed physical defenders like Victor O, have been making LaVine disappear faster than usual. Towns seems to be playing is heart out and doing amazing things, but Wiggins just quietly keeps keeping a step ahead of Towns. Wiggins' 3pt shooting has been a pleasant surprise if not amazing so far. Clearly all 3 are ahead of expectations for their experience ( or lack of ) but something still seems off since we aren't really stopping anyone or getting the job done.

It's still early, but the vibe watching them feels all wrong for some reason!

Just random rambling I guess.

The Wolves are leading the league in 3 Point percentage?

TYUS is showing out. Lavine continues to impress me.

If they had played some 3rd quarters differently they pretty easily could be 4-3 or 5-2 right now. But I hate IFs so who cares. More is needed from the bench. The D has also been very Adelman like. I'm sure it's keeping Thibs up at night.

A victory! The Magic are terrible though. The Wolves are shooting the sh it out that rock! Obviously not sustainable, but the effort, focus, and practice they are putting in to get those looks and to make them is evident.

Starting off slow is fine. I just wish the schedule would have bee more difficult so they could justify losing to good teams instead of other bad teams.

What happened to our guy Serge Iblocka? He has been on a downward slide but this year he is just trash. What a bad trade for him. Looked bad at the time and now looks worse. Oladipo is going to be a pretty good player. Ibaka may not be in the league much longer.

Ryan Saunders appears to be the only coach with a sense of style. It's too bad. Brunson's pants are way too long. Thibs has the same suits from 2010.

Luc Mbah a Moute is killing the Wolves. CP3 is fat.
