Why The Timberwolves Are Struggling

It seemed so obvious. The Minnesota Timberwolves have back-to-back ROY award winners, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. They have Zach LaVine, a young, freakishly athletic guard who seemed to be developing his game at the NBA level.

The Wolves' Startlingly Bad Defense

The 10-21 Minnesota Timberwolves are the most disappointing team in the NBA. They turn it over a bunch, fail to utilize the three-point line, fall over themselves in tight situations, and really (seriously very badly) can't play defense. That last point is notable considering Tom Thibodeau is their new head coach, but maybe we should've seen this coming. Despite visible raw talent...
