Anyone saying KAT is empty stats or "sahft" needs to take a hike. His name has been sullied because of the Butler fiasco but he is a hugely impactful player for his team.

I know we lost and Ant screwed up at the end but, man, on our last defensive possession he STONED DeRozan when he was out there on an island. Very impressive.

He had the right idea but no one was open.

I really want a game where both Russell and Beasley are good. It seems like every game one of them shoots terribly.

Team has talent and potential but we are young and dumb. Stupid mistakes will probably bite us a lot this season.

The offense should run through Towns, not Russell.

He just has to learn and experience a lot of things.
Nonetheless it sucks losing this way...

I dunno, broken floor ending with a dunk is a pretty good scenario.

KAT's rep took a hit because of his playoff performance, which was before Butler's acting out

Tough lose and ANT & Saunders both cost us from getting a shot up that could have tied it at the end.Tomorrow night I would say our season is on the line.

There were a lot of time, dunk it. Then foul.
He will learn from that.

The one time I wanted Edwards to forced up a jump shot and he drives. Hopefully this is a learning experience.

what happened at the end..we should've called TO..then Edwards pass outta wide open dunk. Just score the 2 and foul them..that was a dumb play. anyway, i think we should've left culver in to defend derozan instead of edwards. i think dlo is the bigger culprit in this loss, miss alot of jumpshots tonight with given space. He had chance to get closer to the rim but instead launch a jumper and missed over friqqin patty mills in reg. And he also fell asleep on defense couple times leaving his guy wide open for 3. he needs to stay with his man and not help out so much. hopefully he has a better shooting night tomorrow.

Culver couldn't defend Derozan all night long.

Should've called a TO, but I get the idea...Ant was locking up at the end, very impressive, Spurs just know how to play.

Ant & KAT had really good games today, Naz too. Beasley with much needing shooting

The story of the game was that the Wolves small ball lineups had no answer for DeRozan. Playing Vanderbilt only 12 minutes while DeRozan scored at will was a major coaching mistake.
