After a good first half in which he let the offense flow and didn’t force any shots, Jeff Taegue came out of the locker room a step slow. A thematic problem of this season, Teague held the ball late into the shot clock. He was unable to create a passing lane through which to hit Karl-Anthony Towns or Taj Gibson in the post, and he was seemingly unwilling to swing the ball around the perimeter. When asked after the game about the offensive rhythm slowing throughout, Towns agreed that “it was more about moving the ball.”

Butler finished the game with 28 points on 8-15 from the floor and 2-5 from three, and he added four rebounds, six assists and a steal to boot. It was his seventh consecutive 20 point game. Towns shared the load, putting up 24 points on an efficient 10-13 from the floor to go along with 11 rebounds and three assists – marking his league leading 46th double-double of the season. That’s a collective 52 points on 18-28 (64%) shooting for the Wolves’ All-Star duo.

On the improved defense, coach Thibodeau said in his post-game press conference that “the biggest thing was getting our legs back under us a little bit. It was good to be back [home].” After tonight, the Wolves move to 13-0 in the Thibodeau era when holding an opponent under 90 points.
When the final buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read 108-89 and the Wolves had wrapped up their 11th consecutive win at home, the team’s longest regular season home winning streak since it won 14 in a row from December 16th, 2003 to February 6th, 2004.
The second quarter saw the Wolves shoot seven free-throws and connect on 3 three-pointers. Combined with another quarter of stout defense, they went into the half with the Bucks in their crosshairs: 60-39.
As the Wolves offense halted, All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo led two Bucks runs that brought his team back to within shouting distance. After Wolves alumni Sean Kilpatrick hit a three pointer with 1:32 remaining in the third, the Bucks were within 12. But the Wolves then went on a 10-0 run into the fourth quarter that saw their lead grow to a comfortable 83-61 margin.
And thus the brilliance of Butler, a wing defender the likes of which the Wolves may have never seen. After acting as the primary stopper against point guard Kyle Lowry and shooting guard DeMar DeRozan on Tuesday night in Toronto—both of whom are All-Stars—he was even better tonight against small forward Kris Middleton and power forward Antetokounmpo. His versatility to guard the opposing team’s primary option night in and night out is a virtue that is truly invaluable for the Wolves younger stars. After the game, Butler modestly credited the entire team with slowing Antetokounmpo.

They will look to continue their momentum in front of another sellout crowd at home against the Pelicans on Saturday night.

our media team is straight-up terrible. We got a new gigantic screen but we’re using the same shit videos and animations from 15 goddamn years ago. It’s embarrassing.

the fans, at least in the upper sections, truly have no interest in the game. that’s why they scream as loud as possible for tshirts and yogurt but not the game. most of the fans at target center remind me of the people who attend mid-season baseball games: it’s just a social outing, not about the sport at all.
the ushers police the good sections from people moving around, no matter how empty the place is

we’re losing every game
I’m a season ticket holder who has not gone to the last few games. Here’s a list of why:
the food in the stadium is unbelievably bad
Okay I understand there need to be promotions and that is part of the business aspect of the NBA, especially with home attendance this low, but come on. The arena sounds dead all night, then an opposing player goes to the free throw line in the 4th quarter and it sounds like how a real arena should sound. It’s embarrassing as a fan. I hope that the Wolves in-stadium advertising team will figure out how poorly this reflects on the organization and change the promotion to something positive. Two dunks or two threes by a Timberwolves player in the 4th or something like that. Also, GO TO THE GAMES PEOPLE!! Go Wolves!
The best thing they could give me is a team that wins. When you’re consistently down by double digit leads kinda hard to cheer.

If we can start winning and drawing the actual basketball fans to the games, then people would come. However, I imagine most people in this sub would agree that watching our broadcast team in the comfort of our own home is just a better overall experience than paying $40 for shitty seats to see a shitty team in a shitty stadium.
