You must not watch a lot of NBA games. Twice in a game is quite a rarity.I am not trying to be Nostradamus. 20+ leads are lost many times each NBA season. They are not a rarity. There have been so many instances of the Wolves not being able to stop a run this year against both good and bad squads. Memphis cut those large leads in half in a matter of a few minutes bringing the deficit to a handful of possessions.
The Wolves just had no answer for Morant. He turned it on and off as needed like a bathroom faucet.
No and sorta.Looks like I need to give more respect to DLO.
Anyone know why Nowell doesnt get more clock? Need a true 6th man. Beasley aint it. He's a good catch and shoot guy, but we need a guy off the bench that can create for himself
I think about it as "I'm going to spot you a 49-0 lead and I'm going to beat you by 9". Just me punching myself in the face to try to find the most misery as possible.Thats the worst part of this......they have so much talent to build two separate 20+ point leads. That's great against any nba team, nevertheless a 2 seed
What the heck is going on with these Taylor protesters? That’s three times now in last week including in Memphis
I'm 100% with you on Towns as well as your 1st part. I would love to see him finish his career here, or do a Garnett and leave after a good run for a championship if he doesn't get one here. But like probably most everyone feels, "Grow a pair!!!!" I said in another post he needs to be a leader not a victim. But, yes, he is very unique if he would just focus on ball, and not the drama.My takeaway from this whole affair is that the Timberwolves are a very good team that can play with anyone and beat anyone. They could easily be up 3-1 in this series. They're a piece or two and a little seasoning away from real contention.
On that subject, I'm not nearly as down on Towns as some people are. A lot of the time he gets put in a danged-if-you-do, danged-if-you-don't situation. Just in game three, the BSN crew criticized him both for not doing enough AND trying to do too much. Granted, he's a drama queen and needs to toughen up A LOT. But he's a unique talent, and in my opinion it'd be a mistake to get rid of him.
Wolves want to get that entire state of Minnesota monkey off everyone's back. Memphis doesn't want to be a 2 seed going down in the first round.This last week and a half has been a delight to be reintroduced to the drama and theater of Playoff hoops. Can feel how high the stakes are every possession, and it's only Round 1.
The problem is he's in his 7th season. He is who he is. He's not changing. If they can get adequate value I'd still trade him.I'm 100% with you on Towns as well as your 1st part.
