On today’s show, we react not only to the Minnesota Timberwolves 17-point loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but also to Karl-Anthony Towns’ frustrated postgame rant about being done with losing. Topics include:

  • Is this Wolves team that started 11-10 different than the 2019-20 team that started that season 10-8?
  • Five game losing streak of not only losing but “getting spanked”
  • Why missed expectations are leading to frustration boiling over more than is typical
  • How Cleveland deployed the same tactic as the Washington Wizards for pummeling the Wolves on the interior, ripping out the soul of the Wolves defense
  • Why the Wolves defense keeps slipping, now out of the top-10 in defensive rating
  • Jordan McLaughlin and Leandro Bolmaro not providing what is needed at backup point guard, and why this might mean it’s time to elevate Jaylen Nowell in the pecking order
