Brandon Roy Gets Standing Ovation In Return To Rose Garden

Ricky Rubio Tells Teammate Alexey Shved to ‘Change This Face,’ ‘Be Happy’ During Timberwolves-Lakers Game (Video)

These days the shorthanded, injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves don’t have much to be smiling about, but that hasn’t stopped Ricky Rubio from trying to bring some joy to the struggling Wolves. Minnesota has lost four straight and 20 of their last 24. Their playoff hopes may be lost, but at least even in the worst of times, Minnesota fans can rest easy that Ricky Rubio will...

Ricky Rubio's amazing pass against the Lakers

  During last night's game against the Lakers, Timberwolves passing maestro Ricky Rubio threw some absolutely ridiculous passes. Most notable among these was Rubio's wonderful wraparound assist to Dante Cunningham in the first quarter, which is shown below. As a bonus, check out another one of Rubio's epic assists from last night. This time, Rubio connects on his patented...

Pain never goes away for Timberwolves

LOS ANGELES It's time to play a mind game a borderline sick one, if you're a Minnesota sports fan. Let's say the predictions were right, that the Timberwolves were to finish the 2012-13 season with 45 wins. That would have put them at eight games over .500 on the season, perhaps six or seven games over right now, as February turns to March. It would have put them on...

Minnesota Timberwolves Nikola Peković hanging with movie star Zach Galifianakis (Photo)

Minnesota Timberwolves Nikola Peković hanging with movie star Zach Galifianakis is a funny site to see.  Peković stands at 6'11, and has been compared to MMA fighters by Dwight Howard, because of his strength on the court.  Hopefully Zach doesn't whip out his junk like he did in The Hangover, because it damn sure looks like they took this picture in an elevator somewhere...

Zach Galifianakis Looks Oh-So-Tiny Next to Nikola Pekovic (Photo)

Didn’t J.J. Watt teach us that it’s not a great idea to pose next to large basketball players, lest you look small? Zach Galifianakis must not have been around for that one. Galifianikis was hanging out with Nikola Pekovic, who plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Galifianakis — who we’re sure is a normal-sized human being — ended up looking like some kind of dwarf...

Ricky Rubio Takes Kobe and Dwight Howard to School

There had to be a reason that the Minnesota Timberwolves were willing to wait so long for this young man to be done playing ball overseas (pesky contracts). Rubio made getting past the Black Mamba look like child's play, and as for Dwight Howard--the words 'too' and 'easy' come to mind. Of course in the broad scheme of things it was only one basket;...

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Portland Trail Blazers prediction and preview

Blazers need momentum, now The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off another close loss, as they let the Denver Nuggets walk away victorious Wednesday night. It was a sour note to end a tough month on, but a matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves has the potential to help PDX turn things around. Matchup: Portland (26-31) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (20-35) Venue: Rose Garden...

Blazers breeze past Timberwolves

Damian Lillard scored 24 points, J.J. Hickson added 18 points and 16 rebounds and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 109-96, on Saturday night to earn only their second win in nearly a month.

Know the Schedule March 4-10: New York and Minnesota play four-game slates the next six weeks

Barea and Amar'e Stoudemire, especially in head-to-head leagues. Other teams with nice schedules include the Hawks with five weeks of four-game slates; the Heat with four games in each of the next four weeks; and the Bucks...
