Agreed. They need to see if a contender wants him around deadline. At least get a 2nd for him.

Jim Pete ranting about the crappy elevator music during the review is the highlight of the game for Minnesota fans.

The rotations have been awful and Saunders has had no clue on how to make adjustments.

They have to teach them how to play off ball. All there is to it. If they can't learn, play someone else.

Totally agree. I can’t help but think Culver and Ant are trying to play within system but they need one or two actions out of timeouts a game to get them going.

Valanciunas put a beat down on many players tonight. They will literally be sore tomorrow.
But wow Grizz have some large players, not just him.

Seems like the NBA as a whole has gotten big again. We get beat up by big teams all the time now. Still not 90's big but they got big players at all positions. Memphis has our damn number on speed dial. Don't know what it is about them but they always body us. They just play hard and physical I guess.

DLO and Beas did enough through 3 to ride this win out but that start of the 4th lineup was horrible. Memphis went on a 8-0 run with Rubio leading the offense. Once they cut it to 8pt lead is when Saunders shouldve put Towns and Beas back in.

At what point can we finally admit that playing super small against big teams doesn't work.

Saunders need to leave two of dlo, towns and Beasley in at all times.. The bench isn't dependable. Need to replace Huancho ASAP no defense no rebounding from him.

Need to trade the "potential guys" for win now pieces as our "star players" are not good enough as is. Or trade "star players" for potential and draft picks. Can't have it both way. Either go all in or tank.

Juancho had 29 minutes. I could have swore he didn't play after the first 7 minutes. 1-6 from 3, one swish. Really, anyone notice him in second half?

Anderson started shooting that shot on Sunday and Juancho still didn't close out in time

We 100% have more talent than their squad this game. So we underperformed.

That happens. When it happens consistently it’s a coaching issue. I’m out on Saunders at this point.

We lost the game when Juancho decided to leave Anderson WIDE open for whatever reason for 6 straight points

Can't believe this
2021 Wolves will make the playoffs

Team has to get better, more reliable. Good teams that know what they are doing have guys you can rely on, they have the next man up mentality. Takes time and talent, we aren't there yet that's for sure. Juancho gave you little, 3 key bench players gave you next to nothing. It sucks being a young inexperienced team.

If Saunders seat was already getting warm, it's got to be hot now.
