This is gonna be the season that Kennard is gonna blossom. No Kawhi and Marcus Morris Sr (for now), means he gets at least 24 mins a game, even when his shooting is off. However he's clearly proven he can go supernova on offense and is a massive threat that must be accounted for on the perimeter. Once he gets that consistancy going and can start bombing away from 3 at high volume, he's gonna be a major weapon on offense.

I honestly wished he had played more last season. He just needs more game time reps to build chemistry.

Poor Timberwolves fans. Another season of being the get-right game for the rest of the NBA.

It's nice to see this team finally start taking care of business. Hopefully they're clicking now and we never have to see the abysmal basketball from the first few games again.

Yeah it's one game and the ball was moving and guys were making shots. I'm willing to give them 10 games into the season or even 15 to really evaluate.
Not having Morris and Ibaka is hurting us but hopefully guys can step up.

Honestly when Morris comes back or If Ibaka is back, we should experiment with Reggie, Mann, PG, Batum, Morris/Ibaka starting line-up. lots of ball movement, lots of switching on defense.

That'll be interesting.

I'd like to see Reggie and Mann starting in the backcourt regardless, and have Bledsoe run the second unit. If he's gonna make any impact, maybe he can look to drive and initiate there. Mann is a much better complimentary player to the starters, what can Bledsoe do off-ball?
