A Conversation with Cheryl Reeve

A Conversation with Cheryl Reeve

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports The head coach and general manager of the Minnesota Lynx was kind enough to chat with Canis Hoopus recently to discuss the 2021 season, the upcoming offseason, and much more. The following conversation was lightly edited for clarity. Lucas Seehafer: You’ve had some time to digest this past season. With that clarity, how would you assess the 2021 campaign? Cheryl Reeve: I would say, very simply, that us not — and I think I’ve said this before — us not coming to training camp with everybody physically ready to play, being in great...

Patrick Beverley To Miss Time with Groin Pull: On Adductor Strains, Recovery, and Rehab

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Here is all you need to know about the guard’s injury. Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch dropped some rather unfortunate news Friday morning during shoot-around when he announced that veteran point guard and team voicebox Patrick Beverley will miss at least the next two weeks after suffering a left adductor strain early in the team’s win against the Miami Heat. Patrick Beverley will be “re-evaluated” in a couple weeks, per Chris FinchOof.— jace frederick (@JaceFrederick) November 26, 2021 The adductors, more...

Wolves 138, Grizzlies 95: Utter Domination

Wolves 138, Grizzlies 95: Utter Domination

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports Minnesota picked up their third wire-to-wire win of the season, and their second in a row, by thrashing the Grizz on Saturday. The story of David and Goliath is compelling for a number of reasons, but particularly because of how cleanly little David dispatched his gargantuan opponent. A well-placed stone to the forehead and one swift sword strike later and Israel had defeated an opponent that was thought to be overwhelming and unbeatable. While, today, the ancient biblical story is often utilized as an allegory to explain how one...

Karl-Anthony Towns is Not the Wolves’ Biggest Problem. But He May Not Be Their Solution. And That’s Alright.

Karl-Anthony Towns is Not the Wolves’ Biggest Problem. But He May Not Be Their Solution. And That’s Alright.

Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports Let’s begin with a simple premise: Winning basketball games at the NBA level is difficult. In order to be a championship contender, teams require multiple top 25-50 level players — and often at least one of them needs to be considered top 10 — and a bench replete with veteran talent and superstar role players. To even hope to finish the season with a near .500 record, teams likely need at least one genuine All-Star and pieces that complement them perfectly. As a case study, consider Anthony Davis during his years with the New Orleans...

Anthony Edwards Should Not Escape Criticism for the Wolves Flow-less Offense

Anthony Edwards Should Not Escape Criticism for the Wolves Flow-less Offense

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports Minnesota’s second-year phenom too often relies on isolation and an ill-advised 3-pointers when the offense is in a funk. At this point, it’s well established that the Minnesota Timberwolves’ offense is in disarray. Through nine games — seven of which they have led by double-digits at some point during the contest — the offense ranks 26th overall with a 101.8 offensive rating and is among the worst 3-point shooting teams in the league. Even after the games in which the offense operates fairly well on the whole, such as the...

Clippers 104, Wolves 84: Oofda!

Clippers 104, Wolves 84: Oofda!

Nick Wosika-USA TODAY Sports The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to 3-5 on the season following another disappointing loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, and then, somehow, the times got even worse. Such was the story Friday night as the Minnesota Timberwolves dropped their second consecutive game to the Los Angeles Clippers, 104-84. However, while Wednesday’s loss was the result of a historic offensive performance by the Clippers, the loss on Friday was virtually the opposite. Los Angeles shot 6-for-28 from deep and...
