Yeah, i watched some of the timberwolves game yesterday and tried to imagine how we could lose, it was very difficult up till fourth quarter, when they picked charlotte apart (even though they had not enough time to get a win).
I think the reason for that is obvious - RA.

Derrick Williams must be a constant source of frustration for Rick Adelman and his coaching staff. The guy has a geniune opportunity to show what he has got while Love is out but he just doesn't seem to get it. Apart from the odd glimse of something special, he appears to be lost out there. Certainly not what the Wolves expected from the no:2 draft pick.

I'm keen to see how Barnes goes against AK47. Kidd-Gilchrist obviously didn't enjoy the experience.

this game is up for grabs, besides AK and RD the wolves have zero advantage. lee should eat derick williams for lunch. curry must, i repeat, must destroy luke ridnour while thompson is pretty much equal with shved (him being better playmaker and defender, though worse scorer). stiemsa/biedrins/ezeli is neutral.
it comes down to black falcon not biting the bullet. that will be tough. the bench is 100 percent ours.

with timberwolves defence and our shooting woes, this should be very very ugly win.

as always, i hope i'm wrong and we blow them off the court.

Team has to win or what a morale dropping loss it would be, with the TWolves not having Love, Rubio and Pekovic, it is easier than it ever will be this season to beat them.
