The Minnesota Timberwolves will attempt to avoid 10 straight losses on Tuesday night when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Minnesota Timberwolves season needs to come to a close before any more players get hurt -- or Kevin Love somehow finds himself playing in meaningless games while trying to recover from a concussion. The show must go on for the rest of the league, however, as not every team had a slew of injuries that forced them out of any chances at a postseason berth.
The Wolves have lost ten consecutive games and, with Love still on the mend, there's a decent chance that streak could stretch to an eleventh game on Tuesday night. Even if it doesn't, Minnesota basketball fans still have Tim's game previews to look forward to thanks to excerpts like the one included below.
Poor David Kahn. Even when he takes the consensus #2 pick, he can't win. Or can he?
Kahn already knows that Kevin Love and Wesley Johnson have their respective starting spots locked down. He decided to draft a player who only had bench-level talent so that there would be no playing-time conflicts. When Love comes back, no one will have to wonder whether or not Williams should go back to the bench.
Of course he should. People say you shouldn't draft for fit, but in this case, Kahnzie did a fantastic job of drafting for the bench.
