Venting On The T-Wolves Doing 'Bad Team' Things
Rather than focus merely on the frustration of the loss, I wanted to use the stretch run to illustrate the Wolves' tendency towards what I like to call "bad team things" - the small things that happen in a game that cause lesser teams to lose close winnable games. In and of themselves, each of these mistakes could be seen as aberrational, or not that big a deal, but I think those who have watched bad, though talented teams over the years, and this Wolves team in particular will recognize many of these as archetypes of the kind of "anti-winning" plays which have plagued the team all season.
In case it's unclear, this is much more venting than serious analysis.
