Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
It's another rough season for Timberwolves fans. After a gradual incline in wins the past few seasons, capped by forty wins a season ago. Now, the Wolves are on pace for roughly 14 wins and are one of a handful of teams (Sixers, Jazz, Knicks, L.A. Lakers, Pistons) that are praying for the balls to bounce their way in the NBA Lottery come May. I'm sure any team would be thrilled to nab the #1 pick and draft Jahlil Okafor, however these six teams are squads that are losing night in and night out. Their fans are looking ahead to the future as the only bright spot in another season of loss after loss after loss.
The Timberwolves are currently 5-27 on the year, behind only Philadelphia at 4-28. The Wolves have lost eleven-straight.
Despite their abysmal record, there is some light at the end of this tunnel, beyond just the high draft pick as a result of the losses. The Wolves aren't as bad as they've played. Yet again, it has been a season of injuries as Minnesota's key players can't stay healthy and on the court.
You've got to factor in the fact that the Wolves are currently down three starters (Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin & Nikola Pekovic) as a key in all these losses. The Wolves lost their backup center Ronny Turiaf for the year (and later traded him to Philadelphia) and they traded away one of their few healthy veterans (Corey Brewer)
