Their record stands at just 4-8, but the Minnesota Timberwolves have gotten off to a respectable start to their 2011-12 season. The hard to watch blowouts are a thing of yesteryear, while nail biting conclusions have become a common occurrence. The product on the court is much improved from last year’s squad. The coaching staff has proven to be an immense upgrade as well. While Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio regularly fill up the box score; center Darko Milicic has not. Milicic has seen significant struggles on both ends of the floor, but it has been his utter lack of motivation that has grown problematic.

Luke Ridnour’s Shooting: A Pleasant Surprise for the Minnesota Timberwolves
