Question: Why is it that we can run up the score with our starting five, yet we are unable to maintain the lead when we put our "forth quarter" team in the game? Answer: Because he Casey takes the starters out of the game and puts them on the bench (even if our starters have 18++ points in the first half).
Well this blog is going no where fast. If I could, I would post a comment to possibly spark some ideas, but with the attention given to this site I don't think anyone would notice.Here is what I've got about the Timberwolves...Is it to early to talk about the Twin Towers again...? At least the Twin Towers that play for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Blount is pretty good this year and is essentially everything I have said we've needed from a big for quite sometime. I'll go out on a limb and be the first to say that I really think he’ll play a complete season at this level of play. Blounts past would spark many to wonder when this streak of solid play is going to end. I on the other hand, feel this is arguably the best playing situation he has ever been in. When has Blount ever been able to be the second best big in a team? Am I the only Ricky Davis fan in Minnesota...? Why is it that everyone has a problem noticing his strengths and acknowledging that every player has their weakness? He may not always make the right decision, but he is a scorer and should be treated as one by Coach Casey. Leave him in the game and keep his minutes around 40 per game. He is our best natural scorer (When he is able to hit his mid range shots) and is also proving that he can play on both ends of the court. With his speed and athletic capabilities, lets let him shoot and create as many opportunities possible... This is the type of player who matches best with KG. A player who can both utilize the high pick and role, and create an open shot from any situation. We know KG has an uncanny ability to rebound and move without the basketball, why not hope to take the attention away from KG at times, while utilizing one of his strengths, to create an opportunity for Davis to take the shots he needs to score 30 a game. Mike James needs to play a different role...We have the scorers in Minnesota with KG, Blount, Davis and what has been an uplifting turn-around for Hassell. I know James averaged career numbers for points last year, but that is what he was needed for in Toronto. Now we need James to become as unselfish as Jason Kidd while leading the fast break like Nash. I'll be the first to admit, Mike James is not as good at either one of these two in these areas, but we don't need him to be as good. If he is able to do these things well, that is good enough for me. Mike James is great at cutting to the basket and drawing attention, dish it off to an open player. If this can be done 10-15 times per game… Hoo-ha! ...but in the process make an open three from time to time.Overall, I think this is the best Timberwolves team we have even seen in Minnesota. Not because of raw talent (although we do have a deep bench, were just lacking consistency), but because we have a more complete team with players who in my opinion are able to play specific roles better than ever before.
