Souhan: Timberwolves' lack of on-court leadership is showing
The closest thing the Wolves have to an on-court leader is veteran wing Taurean Prince, a key bench player who, not coincidentally, played in all five games of the Wolves' winning streak and has been out with an injury during their two-game losing streak.
Similarly, second-string point guard Jordan McLaughlin's passing and energetic defending has been missed as he has been injured the last two games.
Patience with this team is warranted.
Patience with this team's lackadaisical approach is not.
There is no excuse for a bunch of highly paid athletes on a team with enormous expectations playing without intelligence or energy.
Forget the finely tuned Warriors. Losing the previous game to the Hornets is the real crime.
