I do think a pump fake would have worked better on the play since it was late and he might have been able to take a step or two in for a better shot, but stuff happens. Nobody goes 82-0

I'm a fan of his too, and I think it was a horrible shot.

Just post Love up in the paint and let him go to work, end of story! Down by only 1 ... c'mon now!!!

Barea lost the ball but the play had Love at the 3pt line anyways!

2pter wins = easier shot
3pter wins = more difficult shot


let's go for the win ... with ... a 3pter! ... wait, huh?




Oh well, great comeback by Wolves on a back-to-back.


Kyrie = overrated!

Kevin Love, dude ... you're better than this. You make great plays, but you mess up on so many as well.

2-8 from 3pt last night, 0-7 tonight!

Maybe if you made a few more of these throughout the game you wouldn't need to be shooting one at the end of every game to try and win it with one shot!
yea its game 4 of the season and hes so overrated. You kidding me? He has had a pedestrian start to the season. But you are so wrong. Where were you the last two years when Kyrie owned the 4th quarter and had the best percentage out of everyone? Crickets. Now you come in. Didn't you apologize a year ago for being such a negative person and that you would change? Well everytime I come on the board I see you making negative posts or threads. Looks like your back to your old scrooge ways again.

Big early season matchup for the Wolves against the dangerous Warriors squad!

I like this Wolves team, Rubio is a top 3 best passer in the NBA.

Klay Thompson is absolutely killing us. 19 in the 4th and counting. Turnovers have been the killer for us the past two games.

Poor shooting tonight didn't help from the looks of it.

Oh no, not at all. Wolves only shot 38% but Klay Thompson went off. If they could have contained him in the 4th, it would have been closer at the end with a possiblility of a different outcome. Warriors are a good team though.

Since this is a T-Wolves thread and I am a fan and figure that clearly most of you are, I wanted to let you guys know that unfortunately due to me trying to put together a new Court Kings set, which is proving to get pricey, I am having to get rid of a 09-10 Court Kings Kevin Love 5x7 Box Topper Auto (On Card) /75. If any Wolves fans or otherwise are interested, pm me. The Wolves problem right now is that they have no depth, you can tell the back to back Sunday/Monday was still hurting them tonight because they aren't opening up the rotation enough because well, they can't, unless RA will take a risk with Shabazz or Dieng and give them more of an opportunity.

They need to play shabaz more and less of cunning ham, i would also right now like to see more of shved and less of JJ. Trade pf Ridnour looking bad right now. I wish JJ was the one gone. Til he heats up than i will be glad we kept him.:turkey:

They kept JJ for his defense but he can't play D on someone the size of Klay. That was a matchup mistake that the Wolves made tonight that hurt them. And honestly, I don't think Shabazz deserves to be on the court at this point. He showed in summer league and preseason that he is still in his college ways of not passing the ball often. I think what's hurting us is not having Budingers production off the bench.

Wolves need to stop taking so many 3s, or start making them.

If you take Kmart out of the equation, the rest of the team is 2-31 in their last 2 games.

Was at the game last night they looked good on offense in the 1st lots of ball movement and off the ball screens for easy layups looked alot like the old Kings teams for a brief moment. Got zero production from the bench and were lazy on defense all night and then Klay started firing away from the stockyards in South St. Paul.

Back on the winning track with a good win

Love with 32-15-8
Martin with 32-5
Brewer with 17 and Pek with 15

Nice overall performance tonight to get back on the winning track!

Nice win over the Lakers but tough loss against the Clippers. A lot of tick tack calls against the Wolves last night from what I saw and not much called on the Clips. We will get them at home though. They arent going to beat us every time.

Some HUGE performances last night! Everyone came up big with Martins absence!

Also, I just randomly found this Twitter. I know it doesn't have many followers but I found it when I was randomly searching Kevin Love and I was thinking that other Wolves fans might like it too, so check it out

Wolves are 7-4. Not a bad start for us. Lost a couple that we shouldn't have to the Cavs, Clippers,and Nuggets. We just need consistent play from the bench, especially Barea, and that'll help a lot in those close games. But I'll take 7-4 to start the year with amazing play from Love and Martin. On to the next, be ready Wizards

I really like how Timberwolves start the season. It just matters of time that they will build up more team chemistry.

Sucks how we hang with/beat the good teams but lose to the absolute garbage ones like Boston. Hopefully we get a nice W against a good Portland team.
