Jimmy Butler played pretty well with the Wolves tonight despite the loss. Did he finally mend wounds with the team?

22 minutes for the Wolves 200 million dollar man.

There is a power play going on right now. Thibs and Butler vs Ownership and KAT.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

Celtics start 1-0, with a great chance to start 4-0 if they beat Toronto Friday, Kings start 0-1, hooray!
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

He fouled out, but the bigger concern has to be only 6 shots (I mean Dieng had 8 in 2 more minutes then Towns).  Of course that falls in line with last year as well (not many shots, but super efficient - obviously he wasn't super efficient yesterday).  Does Towns pass up shots or does the offense just not create shots for him?  I don't watch the Wolves enough to know that answer.  If it is the former that would be a concern, if it is the latter maybe it is time for new coaches.

Towns doesn't pass up many good shots but he isn't very assertive about getting the ball when it's not in his hands. He's pretty passive without the ball and lets the game come to him, which isn't a positive for a guy with his abilities. He also has a tendency to just hang out by the 3 point line - it's hard to say if that's him or the offensive scheme but it contributes to the passivity.

Basically the offense isn't feeding him many shots but he isn't being proactive about getting them either. He tends to take pretty good advantage of the shot opportunities he does get but the general passivity means active defenses can often shut him down.

Also can't rule out that Jimmy just plain took his soul last week in practice Kwame Brown style but we'll need more data on that.

So what was up with Jrue Holiday's headband?  I feel like that can't be legal (not complaining about it, just surprised).



Looked like the Karate Kid or Solid Snake out there.

Owner just stated again yesterday that they are committed to trading him.

Fultz is still broken, man.  He just had a wide open corner three and passed it up to drive into three defenders.
