A loss and at a loss (Min/Cha wrap)

The short term and the long term vie for the basement of House Timberwolf

Make that 9 games this month that the opposing team has shot at least 50%.

And that wasn't even the craziest part of the night.

Let's take a vote: was it this?


Or was it this?


Obviously, just like they drew it up. I mean, that's so unscripted, it has to be scripted, right?

When Kemba Walker and the Hornecats buried the Wolves with a game winner back on November 14, 2012, we were all eagerly looking forward to a near future of fully healthy Timberwolves and many glorious victories. Back then, we expected to reach this point with a team that looked something like this:

Rubio Ridnour Barea
Roy Shved Lee
Kirilenko Budinger Williams
Love Cunningham Amundson
Pekovic Stiemsma
Adelman
Instead, we stepped onto the court tonight with a team of:

Rubio Ridnour Barea
- - -
Kirilenko Williams Gelabale
- Cunningham Amundson
- Stiemsma Johnson
Porter

After last night's game, I said I was running out of things to say about this team, and well.....that hasn't changed. The season has quickly gone from =D to =) to =/ to =( to ;<( and it just keeps on keepin' on.

  • Hopefully this is not the last we've seen of CJ and Jellybelly
  • The Cats played a positively Nellie-esque lineup tonight of Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions, Ben Gordon, Gerald Henderson, and the Manther. Four guards and a 6'10" center. We Believe.
  • Rubio finally played a Rubio game tonight. 14 points, 8 assists, 3 steals. Only thing that went right.
Yeah. That's kinda all I got...
