Nine at a Time, Part IV: Timberwolves Season Review

Nine at a Time, Part IV: Timberwolves Season Review

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports What can we learn from games 28-36? I suppose we all saw the Golf Digest story highlighting that the Minnesota Timberwolves recently overtook the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the worst all-time winning percentage for active major sports franchises in the U.S. And, look, whatever. The greatest quarterback in NFL history just voluntarily signed to play for Tampa. These two franchises are not remotely comparable. It does get one to briefly ponder if there any fan bases that have it worse than Minnesota. I know some have introduced a “misery...

Kevin Garnett is no longer a candidate to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves

Just like that, Kevin Garnett is no longer a candidate to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves. Last summer, Garnett announced his intentions to make a bid to purchase the franchise that he put on the map two decades ago. There hadn’t been much chatter surrounding his candidacy as a buyer since then, and now, KG says […] Kevin Garnett is no longer a candidate to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves - Dunking with Wolves - Dunking with Wolves - A Minnesota Timberwolves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Minnesota Timberwolves: Predicting the Wolves’ second-half record

The Minnesota Timberwolves recently released their schedule for the second half of the NBA season. The Wolves will open up the post-All-Star Break slate by playing the Pelicans in New Orleans on March 11. During my predictions for the first half of the season, I was admittedly a little too optimistic about the Wolves. Of course, a lot […] Minnesota Timberwolves: Predicting the Wolves’ second-half record - Dunking with Wolves - Dunking with Wolves - A Minnesota Timberwolves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Canis Hoopus weighs in on the hiring on Chris Finch. So continues the rollercoaster ride that is the Minnesota Timberwolves season. Well, maybe a ride that just goes downhill a lot, but isn’t that good? Let’s take a look at at how the Canis hivemind felt during the coaching hire week!

Minnesota Timberwolves: Reviewing the state of the franchise

It seems like forever ago that the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Denver Nuggets in a win-or-go-home contest that caused an unfamiliar excitement among Wolves fans: their squad had made the playoffs. After acquiring All-Star Jimmy Butler in the summer of 2017, the Timberwolves went 47-35 and were in the postseason for the first time since […] Minnesota Timberwolves: Reviewing the state of the franchise - Dunking with Wolves - Dunking with Wolves - A Minnesota Timberwolves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Dane Moore NBA Podcast: An Unacceptable 1st Half Of The Year + LaMelo vs. Ant

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ The Minnesota Timberwolves’ 33-point loss to the Charlotte Hornets going into the All-Star break was an unacceptable finish to an unacceptable first-half of the season. On today’s pod, we discuss why the plan for what the Wolves are building needs to be adjusted. How a ‘Process’ doesn’t make sense when you have Karl-Anthony Towns and traded your first-round pick Why Wolves fans have the right to be upset and pushback against the plan for how this team is being rebuilt Comparing Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball’s numbers halfway...

Hornets 135 - Wolves 102: Slipping into the Abyss

David Berding-USA TODAY Sports The Wolves head into the break in a tailspin Over the course of the NBA season, the dreariness of the pandemic in the NBA has become normalized. We are used to tarped-off stands, piped-in fan noise, and the drudgery of the Timberwolves. But sitting here in the Target Center as the lights dim and the center court lights up for the protracted entry show for the team replete with howls and strobe lights, it feels anything but normal. The fifteen or so scribes sitting in the arena charting the team’s demise are reminded that fighting is...

Minnesota Timberwolves bombarded by Hornets, 3 takeaways

The Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Charlotte Hornets in an utterly uncompetitive game which no player impressed. The Charlotte Hornets aren’t necessarily known for winning games by large margins (or really winning in general). The Timberwolves managed to look like a college team tonight, losing by several dozen points. Takeaway #1 – Ricky Rubio has […] Minnesota Timberwolves bombarded by Hornets, 3 takeaways - Dunking with Wolves - Dunking with Wolves - A Minnesota Timberwolves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Game Preview #35: Wolves vs Hornets

Photo by Brock Williams-Smith/NBAE via Minnesota Timberwolves (7-28) at Washington Wizards (16-18) 7:00 CST Fox Sports North The Minnesota Timberwolves face off against the Charlotte Hornets tonight in the team’s final game before the All-Star break. The Timberwolves have lost 14 of their last 16 games and haven’t won since February 14th. This All-Star break is desperately needed for the team, and the fans, to step away, clear their heads, and regroup. Before we can enjoy not thinking about basketball for a few days, we have to battle with the Hornets. In the...

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Charlotte Hornets: Odds, injuries

The Minnesota Timberwolves play against the young, competitive Charlotte Hornets tonight at 8:00 p.m. in Minneapolis.
