Wow ... I am officially embarrassed to be a Wolves fan. As a former season ticket holder day 1 and season 1, I’ve come to realize I just can’t do it anymore. Gonna have to shut it down for a while for my own sanity. I think they may have broke me. Grizz didn’t even have Morant.

Teams just don't fear us at all. We just got ripped by a team of young bench players, who didn't even look concerned being down going into the 4th.

Not a bad plan. Like I said before, I think some fans should consider taking a break, this team has a lot of work to do before they can be considered respectable. Come back in a month or so and check in. They need to figure a lot of things out.

It’s really sad how we can not draft a decent player. Culver is just not good.

They had a much better roster configured after trade deadline last year. They broke it, stomped on it in one offseason. I said all summer, trade all the picks for future picks. Rosas gotta Rosas.

Couldn't just keep a positive player like Johnson. THat 18 final season was just the sweetest candy on the shelf for the GM to make moves with. Couldn't resist. We got smaller, destroyed balance, confused their own players to start the season. A lot of people here talking all summer that if moving Johnson they should attach another asset to him and go get Gordon if anyone. Someone with size. If they couldnt, don't do anything.

The whole league has been getting larger and as usual the Timberwolves are a year or two late to the party copying everyone. Why take a break and then come back. They aren't going to improve. More chances they break it worse.

The team has major confidence issues. Edwards and Rubio are the main catalyst. Both think they should start probably their confidence is ZERO

Saunders and his 10 man gameplans can shove it. When you have 5 bench players all sucking hind tit from the beginning of game on, you get a couple others involved.

Nowell is sitting there. Culver/Edwards couldn't play at all today.
JMac is sitting there. Rubio was struggling. JMac can add scoring and creating for the bench.
McDaniels is sitting there. Juancho hit the off switch early in this one. Vando began strong but was in foul trouble right away.

Really interesting how refs were on Vando's case all game but Grizz were beating on Wolves players with very physical play. We had a lot more FT shots, but it probably should have been even double that. Maybe just one of those instances where they see the imbalance in calls and just stop calling them.

Rubio playing time should go to JMAC
Juancho (when cold) playing time should go to JV or McDaniels

Might as well try new sh*t if the results don't change.

So many want to blame Saunders but he's just playing the guys Rosas has given him. Size beat us tonight and Rosas has given us little size.
Most of all we were 4 of 20 in the 4th. Ryan didn't shoot any of them. How are you going to win shooting like that?

I do agree i don't like many of the lineup combo's Ryan uses but he's playing what he has.

I hate to say it but Ricky gives us very little in this offense. He's playing the worst ball of his career. He just looks out of sorts.

3 players all at 25 or more points. Normally we could expect a win. But two starters below 5.
6 of 10 players today with 6 or less.

I just noticed JMac might not have even been with team this time. Davis, McD, Nowell listed as DNPs. JMac has that 50 game limit as a two way.

Agree. Why keep losing with rotations we keep losing with? And if a player is really off his game, load someone new up.

Would've closed with DLO/Malik/Okogie/Vando/KAT. Help counteract the size and physicality that you lose with Okogie at the 4, especially against a frontcourt of Anderson/Clarke/JV. Rubio was not really providing much of anything and I'm struggling to see why Saunders insists that he close every game. I also feel like we're not using Ricky to his strengths either in terms of the playcalling when he's out there. That goes for Culver and Edwards as well. Simplify the playbook a bit to get their confidence up

Edwards has been disappointing. 1st pick. Has no idea what he is supposed to do. Embarrassing

I am not here to defend Edwards, but let's also keep in mind his usage and how his game has actually regressed from the beginning. It seems like the worse he plays the more Saunders praises him for playing their style. What the hell you draft him for if his game doesn't match your style??
