We need to put a real 2 next to rubio. One who shoots when he passes the damn ball.

It's like instead of an escape dribble he did a trap dribble. What the hell son.

Story of the Wolves season in this game - start off really strong and get a big lead in the 1st half, and then gas out and lose in the 2nd half.

TOs, bad shots, defensive lapses in the 4th.

Those things happen when a team is short-handed and without a coach. Ah well.

That last possesion was so pathetic it seriously made me laugh out loud, I seriously couldnt stop laughing it was so stupid.

I definately put blame on Porter, no shots fom Gelabale in the 2nd half, no Rubio until way too late, way too much Ridnour, wayyyyyyyyyyy too much Stiemsma.

If the Hawks had Ridnour and the Timberwolves had Pargo the game would've been a blowout in our favour.

This L goes on Porter. Overplaying the starters, when they suck all night. They bust our 18 pt lead. Just stupid.

D. Williams: -16
Ricky Rubio: -14
AK: -6
Luke Ridnour: -6

We were winning before Rubio enter...so this makes no sense.

I'm not too upset. I've already come to terms about where this season is headed.

With Pekovic and Shved back we might have a chance to ball at .500 for the rest of the year. I doubt that's enough to reach the playoffs, though.

It's enough to send #14 to Phoenix though.

I'm just sad because it's only lack of coaching. Both Barea and Luke are obviously players who feel more comfortable shooting it than making plays, and Porter lets them do that, instead of forcing them to try and make plays. Luke and JJ really need to realize they are the reason we are the worst team in 3PT%. They need to realize it is not them who need to be the ones taking more responsibility with Love and Pek injured. Gelabale got no balls, Johnson got no balls, DWill didn't get them much either in the 2nd half and that's the story of the game.

I think the Gophers and Wolves need to get together and trade secrets. The Wolves can show the Gophers how to play in the 1st half and the Gophers can show the Wolves how to play the 2nd.

Dude at least get your numbers straight. It's not that difficult...This season 3pt%

Luke Ridnour: .321%
Derrick Williams: .342%
JJ: .333%

Vs

Shved: .315%
AK: .286%
Budinger: .304%
Kevin Love: .217% <------ Get a calculator and try it. THIS is the reason we are last at 3pt this year.

Return to Minnesota Timberwolves
