Wolves went from 23-49 last season to 46-36 this season. Made the playoffs for the 1st time since '18 and 2nd time since '04. Brought many fans back to Target Center and online. The former to glory in the run. The later? More to whine about it but that's what we do.
It should feel batter, but right now it doesn't.
Losing the 10 point lead in the 4th Quarter last night? Nothing special. Memphis hit two back-to-back 3s and it was a game again. Losing those two 20+ leads in Game 3? At Home? That was awful. Not gonna say was a "killer" because turns out it wasn't. Neither was the other 20pt loss. The team not collapsing was just amazing.
You know why they set that "double-digit" loss record? Because they can't shoot, not because they are so awful on defense. They got cold, not stupid. If they actually had a couple of guys who could shoot no record would have been set.
They lost the series to Memphis. A team that had the 2nd best record in the NBA. A team that the Wolves split the season series with. They play Golden State Sunday. Another team that the Wolves split the season with.
Still feels awful though. Looking back it won't. Will feel even better if the Wolves can get a dependable rebounder, who can hit a put back and at least a couple of guys who can shoot!
Ah, Go Wild!?!
