The Minnesota Timberwolves may be in position to gain a rare win over the Toronto Raptors. The Timberwolves have lost 14 of their last 15 in this series and eight straight in Toronto heading into Sunday night's matchup with the 0-2 Raptors. Minnesota (1-0) hasn't won in Toronto since Jan. 21, 2004. But the Timberwolves, who visit Brooklyn on Monday, start their first set of back-to-back games as the rested team after the Raptors fell 107-100 on the road to the Nets on Saturday. "I'm just looking forward to Toronto, one game," Minnesota guard Brandon Roy said. "It's a big game for us and then focus on Brooklyn after that one." The Timberwolves showcased some depth in their frontcourt even without the injured Kevin Love in their opener, a 92-80 victory over Sacramento on Friday. New big men Andrei Kirilenko, Dante Cunningham and Greg Stiemsma all helped Minnesota enjoy a 53-43 cushion on the glass, and the Timberwolves held a 52-42 advantage in poin...
BEST OF MAXIM
MINNEAPOLIS Rick Adelman told Brandon Roy not to worry about the missed shots. Dont worry about the 10 field goals, the five three-pointers, the two free throws. Theyll come.
My, what a positive after a 92-80 win that came in spite of the Timberwolves offense, in spite of Roys shooting, in spite of so much. But Adelman isnt delusional. Hes been doing this too long to be. Hes had...
The Timberwolves are trying to tread water until Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio return from their respective injuries.
MINNEAPOLIS With 67 seconds remaining in the Timberwolves' 2012 home opener, the sold-out Target Center crowd at once took its feet. It was uncanny, almost, the unity with which an entire arena rose and realized that the season it had been dreaming of since long before the last one ever ended would begin with a win.
The fans got just a minute to revel in it. They should have...
Brandon Roy dealt with a swarm of media tonight wanting to talk about his return to the NBA. Some of the topics he addressed include his time away from the game, how his time playing ball with friends got him feeling like he could return and how his body is reacting to playing against NBA competition.
MINNEAPOLIS It isn't every day Kevin Love is mistaken for a senior citizen.That's what happened, though, in August, when the Timberwolves star and Kyrie Irving took the court for a staged pickup basketball game in Los Angeles. They were there for the second installment of Irving's "Uncle Drew" Pepsi commercials, and for the Cavaliers' point guard, the jig...
The T’Wolves are an interesting team, a nice young core with little experience, but tons of talent. However, they are starting the season facing injuries to major contributors on the team. Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio won’t be back for a while out with a broken hand and recovering from ACL surgery respectively.
They did add Andrei Kirilenko and Chase Bundinger which should be able...
The story every basketball fan will be talking about around the water cooler this season is Brandon Roy’s return to the NBA.
MINNEAPOLIS You'll have to wait a little longer to find out who's going to start tonight for the Timberwolves against the Kings. With Kevin Love out, the power forward position is up for grabs, and it'll likely be Dante Cunningham or Derrick Williams out there to begin the game. There won't be confirmation of the decision until about 6 p.m. tonight, after coach Rick...
Ricky Rehabbing Knee
So, I had planned on doing a little blurb about every team in the NBA leading up to a grand Timberwolves finale today. I made it through the Eastern Conference and I'm freaking exhausted. So, today I'm doing the Wolves season preview as planned, and maybe I'll haiku the crap out of the rest of the conference early next week.
Chance for the playoffs...
