I really don't get how Thibs can't see that the reason the Wolves are terrible in the fourth quarter is because they are tired. He plays his guys too much and they have nothing left at the end of games. Yeah their bench is terrible but so are the starters after they've played that many minutes.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

My bigger issue is the sh*tty offense they run. They just don't pass nor get easy buckets. Their guards last night had 84 minutes of run with 6 combined assists. That is terrible.

Their offensive ratings are still really good though, which is probably just proof that this team is very talented on that side of the ball. It's the defense that looks so ugly, especially the transition defense, which could partially be related to fatigue as well. I don't know how you fix the defense but I'm pretty sure you could help with the terrible fourth quarter numbers by giving the guys a little more rest early in the game. It would also hopefully prevent some injuries throughout the season as well.

Lauren Holtkamp slimmed down. She looks better now.

Wiggins has terrible court vision. Teague isn't a great passer (although I think he's great for this team).

IDK what the solution is but I hope they figure it out.

Just saying let's revisit this discussion after the Celtics have played the better Western teams in their arenas.

May not have to wait until late January to revisit this subject as Raptors have already significantly closed the gap in the standings with the Celtics. Raptors, Celtics and Cavaliers are pretty well in the same category in the East.

you forgot to take into account that the Raptors always disappear in the playoffs
