The Minnesota Timberwolves fell apart Wednesday night against the Bulls when Karl-Anthony Towns was off the floor, getting outscored by 19 points. On today’s pod, we focus on the impact of KAT’s fairly chronic problem with foul trouble — and how Chris Finch and KAT may need to adjust accordingly.

  • Will how KAT is being used under Finch — as the hub of the offense — impact the frequency of how often he commits offensive fouls?
  • Can adjustments be made to keep KAT on the floor more often?
  • KAT explains his 6th foul on Wednesday and his changed approach with refs this year (audio included)
  • What will be the impact of playing analytically-driven basketball be on Ricky Rubio?
  • How Rubio’s contract impacts the Timberwolves’ luxury tax situation next season. Could Rubio be traded at this year’s deadline?
