Wolves tip off their 30th season tomorrow night in San Antonio.

If they start their expected lineup of Teague-Butler-Wiggins-Gibson-Towns, it would mark the 1st time in franchise history MIN has used the
same opening-night starting five in consecutive seasons.

I would think that's pretty uncommon for any NBA team. And not necessarily a good thing anyway.

Really?

You think its rare and potentially a bad thing for a team to have the same starters 2 years in a row?

Maybe Jimmy should've been practicing instead of manufacturing drama.

I think he's up to 4 or 5 blown layups.

Yes, I think it's rare and not a good thing. Your GM should always try to make you BETTER the next season. Guys age. Returning with the exact same starting 5 is a sign of a stagnant team.

Wiggins has been quite a bit better in the 2nd quarter.

Did Golden State have the same starting 5 this opening day as they had last opening day?

Nevermind me. I'm watching the very exciting and controversial ALCS Game 4.

3 shots for KAT. 6 Wolves with more than that.

Tolliver: 0 shots in 13 minutes. He has ONE JOB. He’s really going to go Mike Miller on us, isn’t he?

Do you know the answer to this question?

Since the 1st quarter ended, Wiggins has played really well.

Very active.

Its solely a testament to our offensive talent that we were the 4th ranked offense last year.

We generate the worst shots of any team in the league.

Other teams move the ball with purpose and create open looks, we fight like hell to shoot contested jumpers.

Our "improved bench":

Tolliver attempted almost five 3s in 22 MPG last year. Our offense couldn’t get him a single look….

Derrick Rose played 30 minutes. 30. And he was as bad, or worse, than last year.

Okogie, KBD, Nunnally, Deng: DNP-CD

I didn't see much hustle from Butler in the highlights they just showed.

23 pts on 23 shots. That dude should stick to playing defense and shooting 1/2 as much. He’s not an “alpha” scorer regardless of what he and Thib think

Was fascinated by Jimmy Petes info on Wolves players all-time opening night records.
It didn't seem possible
KG was 11-2?
(trying to remember off the top of my head)
he had quite a few that were in the 7-3 or 9-4 ranges
It just didn't sound possible. Knowing the Wolves. I assumed everyone was like 2-10.

Tolliver could've had 4 or 5 good 3pt attempts if Butler or Rose would look for their teammates in situations other than when they get stuck.

We did nothing to get KAT the ball. Nothing.

We just don’t pass the ball unless we have to.

Spurs had 323 passes last night. We had 244.
