I think we are trying to turn him into something he isn't..Guy needs to have some semblance of an interior game.Hes never going to have Durants handle or athleticism.its embarrassing watching him try to create for himself..

The bad: KP is on offense in a real funk right now, seemingly confused on how to get out of it. Also some sloppy play by some of our guys, turning it over at crucial times or not securing a rebound that looked safe.

All in all, three and a half quarters were fine, but the start of the fourth cost us the game.

Nothing unexpected against a very good Timberwolves team, so on to the next. :arrow:


Agree..

Tim looked good.. But he seems to me small even for a SG, Frank looks bigger than him just saying..

Jack, Tim, Lee is to small to play this days..

KP looked solid early on but faded as the game progressed..

I'm alarmed about how few easy looks KP gets per game, he needs to literally fight for every point..

KOQ is playing good ball, TWB brains farted again..

Frank hitting that rookie wall..

Minnesota has a solid starting 5 that should cakewalk the team into the playoffs. Once they arrive, there’s no telling what will happen. But I expect them to be competitive against the elite Western Conference teams, even Golden State. I believed Thibs would turn the franchise around last season, but that never transpired. So, among other players, it appears Jimmy Butler’s offensive and defensive presence made the difference between lottery and playoffs.
The Porzingis blessing is real.

If they didn't turn the ball over a billion kazillion times they might have had a chance at the end. The Teague steal from Beasley summed it up.
No longer sick and tired that Kurt wasn't hired.

Porzingis shouldn't post up a lot anymore. He should be situated behind the 3pt line more to be who he is -- a stretch four.

Wait in the corner or do the pick and roll with him finishing deandre lobs up top.

Kanter is our best post scorer and so is Beasley. No need to put KP there.

I like what I saw from THJ and Jack. Jack is on a different gear right now. Too bad I can't say the same for Frank.

We need toughness and energy boost energy from Noah. There NYGM I said it.
