Flip vs. McHale in Mexico

A bloodbath is imminent. For those of you talking yourself into Flip’s antiquated offense, tonight will be the worst possible juxtaposition to support your theories. 1st to worst in 3 point attempts, with a difference of nearly 19 3 attempts per game (32.9 HOU vs. 14.2 MIN), and a much more palatable 3rd to 11th […]

Games 5+6: Wolves in Florida

This has to be a quick one, so I will sum up a few things to watch for in bullet/dash form while the Wolves spend the next couple of days in Florida. -Pek vs. Vucevic. The Nikolas have had their ups and downs to start the season but Vucevic has generally been a destructive force, […]

Game 4: Flip vs. KG and the Nyets

The gauntlet begins tonight, a 6 game road trip starting in Brooklyn and moving all across the Atlantic side of the continent, including to Mexico, and ending with a SEGABABA in Dallas, the town in which I currently reside and a game I will attend. It will be a very difficult stretch that could make […]

Game 2: Pistons @ Wolves

Game two for the Wolves occurs in a comfortable setting at Target Center, and hopefully the stands will be packed and the energy level high. Last night was a toughie but a goodie. The highlight was easily the 2nd half bench stint which featured some outstanding minutes from Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Bennett and […]

August E-Mail Bantering With Tim and Mike

An occasional series between two remote Wolves fans where they swap e-mails over a period of several days continues, offering 100% unique perspectives and Zach Lowe-level analysis of the Timberwolves.

Analyzing the Love for Wiggins Landscape

Please note that the following post is going to be rather dry. It is, in fact, a dry part of the year in terms of NBA news, weather, and overall body hydration so let’s assume any and all summer blog postings will remain a loose metaphor of this period in the NBA timeline. If you […]
