We would be so much better with another big. They would take a lot of pressure off of Towns, let Towns rebound some more and make it WAY harder to double KAT as he would always be a threat to get an easy bucket under the basket. The fact that we have no size is a killer every night.

Something is wrong when Ant gets twice as many shots as KAT. Russell can't buy a basket, but he too has more shots than KAT.

8 point leads with two minutes to go aren't blown by good teams. Be a good team Wolves.

I think these are some of our biggest issues outside of just bad shooting.

The lack of a real, rebounding big outside of KAT is murder. Kings are folding us hard with 20 offensive boards, we would be up 15 if we could rebound this game,

KAT needs more shots, we all keep saying it, but he needs more plays and the offense ran through him.

We need to get much smarter on the floor, I notice we struggle big time on like 3 vs 1 breaks. We cant make the right choices to get fast break points. It's like we are small to be fast but we aren't fast enough to capitalize on it.

Kings dumb

They stopped going to Buddy Hield

Good to have Pat Bev out there. He drained the clock, refused to throw the ball to Vando and waited for a cutting KAT lol

Just things on the court we need: rebounding, pick and roll lob threat, an off ball cutter. Oh and our shooter to remember how to shoot.

My profile pic lives to see another day.

We need a rebounder, though.

Man Sacramento might somehow be even more dysfunctional than us. Feels like they did so many dumb things in this 4th quarter and had no interest in winning.

So two things that I have always believed about basketball were proven true tonight. First, you feed the hot hand. If we don’t feed Ant when he heated up we lose. Second, small ball doesn’t work. They got 16 more rebounds than us. Even with 10 blocks (last one really doesn’t count,) that number is beyond unacceptable. It is beyond the point of blaming individual players. Finch needs to teach them all to box out and Gupta needs to get us some fu***** size ASAP. We should be 9-5 instead we are 5-9 and rebounding is a huge part of it.

Thank god Ant caught fire in the 4th, I don't know where our offense would have gone.

Now we have another young team vs San Antonio tomorrow. Gotta capitalize

We all see it and no we are not crazy. This teams lack of size is killing us. The best analogy I can think of is the team has been in a car crash and the prognosis is iffy but with good odds of recovery with a blood transfusion. If we don’t get the transfusion soon, even if we recover the risk of short term and long term damage goes up exponentially. I don’t care if it is Gupta, Taylor, heck Finch can negotiate it for all I care, we need a true C or big mother of a PF STAT.
