Minnesota Timberwolves refocus after loss to the Clippers

After suffering a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves bounced back with two impressive victories. Minnesota showed signs of greatness with a 120 – 98 victory over the Washing Wizards and a 117 – 95 win over the Miluakee Bucks the very next day.

Timberwolves' quest for winning record unaided by officials

MINNEAPOLIS -- Those who claim there are no mountains in Minnesota haven't been to a Timberwolves game this year. Somewhere between the state's NBA team and resurgence lies a large, looming butte with a nice, big ".500" plastered on its face. Six times -- five in the month of December -- the Timberwolves have had a chance to reclaim a winning record. Six times,...

Kevin Love Among 6 NBA Stars Who Need A New Home

Kevin Love Among 6 NBA Stars Who Need A New Home By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… Every season there are NBA stars who simply need a new place to call home. Maybe they don’t fit their team’s system, they aren’t being used enough or they simply don’t get along with their coach or teammates. Regardless, for whatever reason, here are 10 stars who need a new...

Kevin Love and 3s help Timberwolves rout Bucks 117-95

MILWAUKEE -- Kevin Love had 33 points and 15 rebounds for his sixth straight double-double, and the Minnesota Timberwolves climbed back to .500 by routing the Milwaukee Bucks 117-95 on Saturday night. Nikola Pekovic added 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Love hit four of Minnesota's 11 3-pointers. Perimeter defense was once again a huge problem for the Bucks, who have allowed opponents...

Kevin Love Is Dumbfounded By Whistle-Swallowing Referees

The Minnesota Timberwolves found themselves on the losing end of a questionable act of whistle-swallowing Monday night, after Kevin Love caught an inbound pass and squared up for a potential game-tying corner shot (his foot was on the three-point line, so the best he could do was knot the game at 100) — only to be rejected by Dallas’ Shawn Marion. The problem is, Marion’s clutch...

Wolves Monday: Ronny Turiaf happy just to "get some live action"

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shabazz Muhammad cussing, A.J. Price raining down 3-pointers, Gorgui Dieng swatting shots. For Ronny Turiaf, delight. Bumping shoulders Monday with a mix of reserves and fellow injured rotation man Chase Budinger, Turiaf tested his right elbow in a contact situation for the first time since hitting the floor hard in the Timberwolves' second game of the season....

Beginning the Second Act: Pack of Hungry Wolves or Stray Dogs?

  On December 27th in the star tribune Kevin Martin is quoted saying that the season actually starts after Christmas. Kevin Love mentioned how the wolves need to get back to their winning ways. For me, these quotes are tough to hear. What winning ways? A 13-15 record is not awful, but if the season actually starts now Portland and OKC are still in vastly better position. Apparently...

Timberwolves' second-half charge falls short against Mavericks

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Shawn Marion was getting to the rim at will, knocking down 3-pointers and playing tough defense. Even if the Minnesota Timberwolves think his defense was a little too tough on the last shot of the game, there was no disputing that "The Matrix" was back for Dallas on Monday night. Marion scored 32 points, hit two huge 3-pointers in the fourth quarter...

Wolves avoid back-to-back lull, crush Bucks

The message, at halftime, was something like this: Don’t let it happen again. The Timberwolves were winning against the lowly Bucks on the road Saturday night, but Milwaukee was getting too many easy baskets and points in the paint. This was feeling a bit too much like last week’s game against the Lakers. Or the week before in Boston, when the Wolves had followed an impressive...

Mavericks-Timberwolves Preview

The Dallas Mavericks didn't see Kevin Love during his injury-plagued 2012-13, but they have seen plenty from him already this season. Love looks to record his NBA-best 28th double-double Monday night and help the Minnesota Timberwolves improve to 3-0 this season against the visiting Mavericks. The star power forward now has six straight double-doubles after he had 33 points...
